I emailed Larry and axed him if he ever kitted the T-Bird II and got a quick it is, copied and pasted:

"Hello Steve.  No, I only kitted the First Thunderbird."

Regardless, the RSM laser cut ribs would not be appropriate for the earlier T-Bird, because (at least), the tip ribs would be longer than the plans. Brodak will apparently sell a set of plans, a laser cut ribset, and perhaps also a complete wing kit for the early version.

To cover all bases, no, none are OTS legal, but both (actually all T-Birds are Classic legal. Four? Five? How about SIX?!!! The early upright with either exposed cylinder, "Speed Cowl", "Radial Cowl", and the Trike. And then, the '59 (RSM) and '60 (Veco kit and clones).   Shocked Steve

Here is what I plan on doing, since I was a subscriber to FM and CW both:

FM cost $38/year but they are gone now.  CW is now $40 year and is not profitable.  I plan on renewing CW and will send a check for $78, which is what I was paying for both publications before  I know that FM had more issues/year and CW is only quarterly, but still is packed full of CL stuff, more so than FM had.

I don't want to see CW fall off the earth like FM, so I am willing to up the ante to continue having a great CL magazine available.

I am sure that any extra sent with your CW renewal will help to defray the costs.  Please consider it.

Interesting bit of trivia. I face my uniflow vent forward but file the tube to an angle. (like a hypo needle) I ran a test some time ago and found that filing the tube to a 45 degree angle reduced the pressure to about .7 that of a squared off end and filing further to a 30 degree angle reduced it to about .5. Check your sine tables and pick your pressure??

WOW!WOW! (double WOW!)  Hugh Thanks for the head's up. Sounds like a return of the ABC hi-zoot piston that the first SE version had. This is good. I prefer the ABC P&L over the previous ringed version and that red head looks cool.  I did the math: 333 g = 11.75 ounces, 22000 yen = $203.70 (probably more when it gets here).  Cool

It is on Fox news who is not afraid to tell the truth. 

Fox News admits they frequently make stuff up.

The administrator can slap my hands if he wants, but I have made a post in Product Reviews section about the magazine.

Have been reading the latest issue of CLW.   One of the lead articles is about our own Pat Johnston.   Then the coverage of the Brodak Fly In if you can call it.  Plus coverage of other contests.  It covers about all there is in control line except maybe speed, but then the Brodak speed events are in there.   Right now John in his editorial says he is losing money on this magazine.   Since Flying Models is no more, CLW is the last of the CL magazines out there.  Yew we have Stunt News, but it is mostly if not entirely about stunt.  I'm not goint to mention Model Aviation as it tries to cover all of modeling.  I notice John has very little outside advertising like some of the magazines do.  He has raised the rate for a subscription to $40.00 for four issues.   Yes that seems high until you see inside the cover all the different articles and lots of pictures.   Each issue has a modelling hero with their history.   I have paid more than $10.00 an issue for a magazine that did not have as much appeal as CLW.   He states that if there is not an increase in subscriptions, the magazine will be no more.   I will be renewing myself.    To me it is one great magazine.

Actually there is an explanation for "parkway".

When the Merritt parkway in New York was built, there many parks along the road. So it was referred to as the "Parkway".

I don't have a clue as how "Driveway" came to be.
