I have taken the liberty to compile the early lists of eligible airplanes for Nostalgia 30. All the credit goes to Randy and Ty.

Nostalgia 30s

Per Randy Smith:

Les McDonalds  Tropicaire , Stiletto 35 size, 700, 660, I think Remel Cooper had an I Beam Stiletto also
BobHunt's Genesis  ,Thud
Al Rabe has a few planes in there too including the best flying of his P-51s , Sea Fury, Bearcat etc
Stan Powell  Dove
Gene Schaffer;s  Hallmark 46
Werwage's  Juno , Parraqeut, and several others
Lew McFarland's  Akro s
Frank McMillan's  Martin Baker
Bob Gieseke's  Gieseke Nobler 46
Jack Sheeks  has a ton of 70s  ships, his Bishop was right after my Fat Cat which looked like twins of each other
Steven's Akro  Dixon also ther Phoenix and I believe Stilares is close
Bill Rutherford's  P-51
P-40 Warhawk ST 60 powered by Ron Harding at the 1975 NATs
Wynn Paul's  PAMPA Wagon
Fancher  has several of this era  maybe the Moby Dick

That's if folks, no more MAN at this house. So if you have the time and inclination, hop to it and fill in the blanks. Next I'll do Model Builder.  What is needed is the names of those unnamed stunters of yesteryear. R&R seemed reluctant to name them.

Thanks to Allen Brickhaus we have some more N30 planes to choose from.

MAN June 1978 Flying Red Horse, profile, Fox .40.

MAN August 1979 Folkert's SK-4 profile. Fox .35.

MAN Dec 1981 Buccaneer 46, (built and flown in 1979) as documented in May 1979 Stunt News. Flown at theGLSMA June 1979 contest. (Greater St Louis Modelers Association).  Note: I am not sure if this group still exists as many of the clubs that belonged to it are defunct. But they had political power, something to think about.

MAN December 1982 Pirata, flown in the late 1979 Indianapolis contest. Jack Sheeks refered to it as "Red Sails in the Sunset".

Buccaneer II,  Fox .35, CSC foam wing. Flown in summer of 1977 and soon to be an RSM kit. No article was published of this model. See it at VSC in 2010.

Got a couple more from issues I happened to have that filled in where Ty's fell off.

Man December 1979, Whitely's Derringer 46

MA March 1979 Roger Green's Aetos, a .25 sized profile.

MA January 1980 Jack Sheeks Heinkel 100. This shoud be legal now, as it was already built, flown, and the article written before the end of 1979.

SIG, Top Flite  ,Jetco, VECO, M&P, and many others had Kits of stuntships that were done back in the 70s, these are also N-30 legal, Such as the AkroMaster. Anyone remember kits that are not listed here? was Keil Kraft still in business during the 1970s?

Referring to your listing MAN, Jan 79, the unnamed stunter is my Eagle 5.  It place 4th at the 78 NATS because I don't like doing hourglass maneuvers.  Alan Brickhouse has plans and I recently found my original 77 velum drawings.  Have been carrying them all over the world.  I should have never wandered away from that design.  Bob Hunt cut the wing and stab and it was powered by a HP 40.

Just to add another plane to the list. I talked with Don Schultz and his Seahawker is eligible. Designed in 1977.

Worth noting that Norm flew that Hourglassless" pattern in either the first or second round of the top twenty flyoff ('79 was the third year for the multi round concept).  In his other flight he scored 560 something the single  highest flight of the flyoff!  In those days a 560 was a very "big" deal.  He could'a been a champ! 

I watched that flight and was very, very impressed!
