Chief design by B. Palmer & Hi Johnson
« on: February 02, 2019, 06:14:23 PM »
I have received the okay to use Pats plans/files to make kits of
the "Chief" that was designed by B. Palmer & Hi Johnson, so if
if anyone is interested in a kit please email me at:
builtrightflyright@builtrightflyright.com

Pat has noted on the plans that this was of the (1st version VECO kit for "OLD TIME STUNT")
I know there are few versions of the Chief, so please see the attachment.

Thank you and God Bless

I understood the first version had a pollywog airfoil? Is the airfoil shown of that type?

GVT...At first glance, I thought the same. Then, I noticed where the flap horn was, and the tail end of the wing ribs. Finally, I thought "OMG, why would anybody do such a thing? It practically guarantees a TE that is certain to warp like a 'tater chip." So, yes, this is the "Polywog Chief"!   H^^ Steve
