Speaking of that, Tailskid, I came across a 'mold' that I made years ago... you would use it to build a wing from sticks, with some 1/64" ply gussets in the areas that needed it. It was supposed to make a super light, super strong rib. I think that came from RCM somewhere years ago...

Bob, I'll look through my boxes at such times I find energy, to see if I have #1 issue. Somehow I doubt it (I got lucky enough to get a near complete collection). It is intimidating in its sheer volume of space! I need to charge them rent in my home! They're not going anywhere though...cool to have them, and worth more in their documentary value than I could gain in monetizing them (the new word for profiting). They are fun to skim through, and once you start reading you wish you had time to read them all right then. Impossible. If I find a classic plan, I have a good chance of having the historic issue behind it though. How wonderful is that? Too bad classic Pattern hasn't fully caught on...I am sick of looking at all the look-alike aerobats we have now (the large, and scale, types we see). The old pattern planes were fairly similar also I guess, perhaps it is just nice to have a change...just as in fashion (and remember, everything comes back).

Hi Everyone, especially Bob, [N1EDM above];

Greetings from the ever warm and sunny 'Valley of the Sun'.

I do have a complete set of RCM from Issue #1, Vol 1, [Oct '63], + most of the anthology, and Digitrio manuals, thro to their bitter end.

I'm not sure how to post pictures herein in RCU, but the Oct '63 RCM, consisted of 40 pages, + cover with 3 B&W photos; there were 2 construction articles: Phil Kraft's Stagger-Bi, a sport type stagger wing Bipe, .56 engine; and a little sport Cessna looking ship called the Exodus, by Barry Halstead for Cox .010 power; + articles of the '63 Nationals coverage, an interview with the late and great Hal deBolt, and another on escapements. The inside cover ad was a full pager for the Kraft Quadrruple Proportional System, list price $499.95, back covers featured ads by SIG, and a radio product called 'the justin micro-tie' wiring system.

Price for the mag then was listed at 40 cents..........anudder time, anudder place.

I hope this has been helpful, bringing back a few memories. Hopefully, I will learn how to placew a photo into RCU, best regards from Glendale, Arizona,

Joe Nagy.

Maybe you can get the picture taken (if not already done) and email it to N1EDM and he can post it for you and then you can continue to learn to post??

I'd be happy to help if that's the way that you want to do it...

Joe Nagy, having that entire collection is impressive. Boy would I love to thumb through that collection!!

When you get a chance to scan that cover, use a really good resolution, like 200 - 240 DPI...

I'd love to pick up Vol 1 Issue 1 if anyone has one to sell

Bob

Great Joe, I am glad someone else has a complete collection! I haven't done a full inventory of my purchase, so may have #1 also (not totally important to me, but I would hope to have one). Your name rings a bell.... can you tell me/us why? Now...I'm off to see if I have the first issues in my procured collection.

Just looked...it looks like my first issue is November 1963 (Vol 1 issue 2). They are all hole punched and bound (who knew not to do that), for the first two years of issues I have. The rest are in quite good shape, minus holes e.t.c.. So if '63 is the first year, then I have all but #1?

Hi everybody,

I am about to order a set of plans from RCMPlans.com of the Crusader II (plan #1030). Does anybody have the RC Modeler Magazine from November 1988. This magazine had the build article for the Crusader II. I know that RCMPlans provides a build article but it is text only. What I want is the pictures to go along with the article. If somebody could be so kind to scan this for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Happy flying and soft landings!

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your reply. I am pleased to say that I found the magazine on Ebay this morning and bought it. I really love the magazine and I have been slowly buying the magazines when I can find them. I have most of the issues from 1992 through 2002. I also ordered the plans this morning for the Crusader II. Again, thanks for your help!

Happy flying and soft landings!

ser00, I likely have it (the issue). I'll look into it when I find time (x-mas, e.t.c.).

edit: I see you got it, great! I replied to your post before I read through the rest of my "unreads" from my e-mail alerts. Also, let us all know how the plans service is working! I'd like to buy some classic pattern plans from the sixties/early seventies (you never know when the plans will go away).

Boy, I would like to see all the RCM covers posted in a few pages here, so I do not have to go thru 60 some pages on RCU. My collection of RCU started in 1967. But I do not have all of them.

Hello again, Brian... Good to see you. How did Wings over the Rockies go this year?

Here's the cover from a RCM Magazine that I just inherited. Would you believe that the Cover Description says that she's only 17??? Naaaaah, I don't believe it either!!

That's Sue Parrish's pink P-40 - used to be seen a lot on the airshow circuit.

Thanks... that looks like a beautiful bird... would be worthy of a Scale effort if folks could get past the pink color. I got this when I googled Sue Parrish

Sue Parrish - Gone West
Legendary warbird and former WASP pilot Sue Parrish has passed away at age 87. Sue was probably best known for being one of the founders of the Kalamazoo Air Zoo Museum and for flying her bright pink P-40 Warhawk at numerous airshows through the 70's, 80'sm and into the 1990's.

In another comment regarding the color of the finish, I found "she answered that it was based on an actual aircraft that served in North Africa that had weathered to a bright pink colour under the intense sun and heat of the desert and that many P-40's in Allied service had their paint schemes go the same way with time."

Thanks for bringing that up.

Bob

Probably a mix of paint and primer. Remember the pink submarine in the movie?

I remember the submarine and the movie... from the Internet, I gathered that she had painted the plane to match that one(s) that got weathered in Africa. Pink airplane for a lady pilot... a nice touch!

I went to school at Western Mich Univ in Kalamazoo graguating in '71. Don't recall ever hearing about her but did hear about her family some. They opened the Air Zoo about 5-6 years after I Graduated.
