There was a Gieseke Nobler 46 listed in the seventies in Randy Smith's list.  I would assume it's bigger than Bob's Gieseke Nobler.  The pic above looks like UHP
standard Gieseke Nobler.

I remember Bob Lampione mentioning something in the NY/NJ area called a Super Nobler??  Maybe that was the 46 size Gieseke?

If I remember right Bob did fly a bigger version of the Gieseke Nobler.   But, I don't think it was ever kitted or plans made.
I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days lived.

When Bobby stayed here for a week, he was talking about a "Super Nobler" airfoil.  Basically the same thing Bob Gieseke did with the Nobler airfoil.

I remember the Large Nobler. It hung in Jack Sheeks hobby shop in Indy 20+ years ago. It was painted a deep red exactly like Bobs smaller Fox powered Noblers. I asked Jack about the airplane and he told me that he got it from Bob but I thought it was powered by a ST 60. Jack Sheeks or some of the Indy guys would know for sure.

Had a pile of old  Flying Muddles magazines fall out of the sky .

They all refer to a S. T. 60 Powered ship , and one says its 120 % up .

as 120 x 120 = 144 , thatd be the AREA , 120%'s Linear .

I remember Bob's Nobler with the ST/46 in it. One year the nats was at very high altitude and he put a 46 in one of his Fox powered Noblers. All the holes did not line up so he used screws for two of the holes. Yes he really did that as I saw the plane at his flying area when I did a two day layover in Dallas so I could go and watch one of there contests. I was on my way back from Phoenix Az to Tampa Fl.
 I built several Gieseke Noblers with ST/46 motors in them. I did enlarge the Stab Elevator to 25%
 Here is one of them.They fly very well.

Nice magazine, especially for the article on Lauri Malila's #10.
I'm sure the Swedish text can be copied and pasted into google translate...
I built a Blue Pants as a kid. Wish I still had it. Might even learn to fly it.

The ST 60 Gieseke Nobler was basically Glen Meador and Lou Dudka's Eagle/Matrix design, made to have the typical Gieseke Nobler "look". He flew it at the 1985 Nats in Westover. I think the plane's mentioned in the issue of Stunt News that memorialized Bob, either by Glen or Lou (don't have the issue handy).

A picture from Ted Fancher's column in the April, 1988 issue of Model Aviation.  Interesting caption.

I'm pretty sure that that is the Nobler I mentioned in 2014 that I saw years ago at Jack Sheeks shop in Indy.  I used to drive down to his shop and shoot the bull with him every couple of weeks or so when I was younger and I remember seeing that big Nobler. He told me that it had belonged to Bob and I'm sure he said it was a ST 60 in the nose.  It was hanging on the front wall close to the door as you walked in.  I remember thinking how awesome it looked.  Someone should ask one of the Indy guys.  I'm sure someone would remember it.

Something else I just realized was that articals was 1988. That's the same time frame when I would go down to Jacks often. I know that for certain because my oldest daughter was born in 99 and and that's about the same time I dropped out of the hobby.  The first time.  Lol.  Rick Henry.
