Done correction.
Thanks.

Gypsy Moth
The plan is correctly referred to on the cover of the August 1930 M.A.N. as a 'D.H. Gypsy Moth'
It's NOT a Tiger
Plan: D.H Gypsy Mothhjf160250 on 19/07/2019 14:27
DH Moth
Incorrectly titled as DH Tiger Moth. It's a DH 60 Moth not a DH82 Tiger Moth. The article heading is correct by labelling it a 'DH Moth'.

Your Voisin Canard model
Larry Nieman - what a fantastic building & covering job you have accomplished! Can you post
flying pictures? A "tip of the cap" for tackling a most difficult and challenging model, in
all respects!
Plan: Bambinoaeroastro on 23/06/2019 16:57
Bambino 'diamond' fuselage
The question is a good one and here's my thoughts on the Bambino's 'diamond' fuselage. The designer, William Hadden, equipped the plane with 8 strands of 1/2" wide rubber strip. This is a big motor for a plane of this size and the motor, in addition to having a fairly sizable 'cross section', would impose significant compression/buckling forces on the fuselage when fully wound. The diamond fuselage is, IMO, a quick & easy solution, a close approximation to a cylindrical shell fuselage that would be structurally superior but requires more work to properly assemble. The Bambino can certainly be flown with less than 8 strands of 1/2" rubber and if so, a conventional 4-sided
fuselage, as you note, would be simpler to build, quite adequate to handle the lesser forces, and (properly sized) house the rubber motor.
