New plans
« on: April 25, 2011, 11:20:44 AM »
I've been working hard to add some more plans to our plans list. We only
add plans that are original, or were from a model kitted by us, or if I've
drawn/inked the plans for a designer and was given permission to sell them.

I've recently added two Stunt/Sport/WWII Combat planes: The Japanese
Zero by Bill Bischoff and the Hawker Typhoon by Steve Moon. These are
easy to build and great flying planes. I'm almost finished with the P-51
Mustang designed by Bill Bischoff and will be adding it soon.

Thanks, Steve

The plane is a simple profile design with a Gotcha 460 foam wing. External controls, no flaps, landing gear if you want 'em. 44.5 span, 420 area. Plans are single sheet 24x36.

The Zeros in the pix were built for WWII slow combat. I won the very first P-40 (profile/ 40 max) stunt contest in Houston with one in the early 90's. Doug Moon flew one in Beginner at the Lubbock Nats in '94. They are quick and easy to build and fly great. With some minor cosmetic changes they can turn into lots of other warbirds as well.

I've sold dozens of copies of my original chicken scratch plans over the years, and I was quite pleased that Steve wanted to do them up right. I even bought the first set!

Here's a couple of pics of the Typhoon. My brother Doug is working on
a Mustang right now. When he's finished I'll post some pics of it as well.

Steve, I saw the Unbearable Plans on your website.  I have old ST .51 & .60 engines which I am interested in making a larger profile stunt plane for (vice getting an ARF/ARC). I've never seen or heard of the Unbearable (other than your plans listing) and I'm curious about its history & how competitive it might be.  I have been flying an Imitation profile, which I still see & hear about.  Thanks, Bill

Bill: Sorry about the delay in answering, we just got back from the Nats.

The Unbearable is a profile version of the '96 Bear with different wingtips and
a little different rudder design. My buddy John Grigsby built the original one,
modifying a Bear wing with the glider style wing tips and the different rudder and the
large cheek cowl on the nose. We flew it with a ST 60 and loved it. It's a pretty
big plane for a profile, so the cheek cowl is important to keep it stiff up front.
It's a really good flying, big profile. But, it is also very important to watch
the weight when building.

I've just added another plan to our site. It is another in the growing series
of WWII Combat/Sport/Stunt profiles. This one is the P-51 Mustang. It uses
a Gotcha 400 foam wing core and .35 - .40 engines.

Later, Steve

I saw that your list includes Supermarine Spiteful - but there is no picture.

The Spiteful, or Seafang for electric contraprops, would be a good Spitfire alternative for those who are worried about elliptical wings...
I built a Blue Pants as a kid. Wish I still had it. Might even learn to fly it.
