    Corby Starlet Plans

    I am looking for plans of an airplane featured in the August 1985 issue of Model Builder Magazine.

    The plane is entitled the Corby Starlet with the construction article written by Dennis Capsfield. The plans number is 8851-A.

    Any help in identifying and procurring these plans will be appreciated.

    RE: Corby Starlet Plans

    Of course the name of the designer is the well known Dennis Tapsfield. Magazine was RC Model World ( published in England )
    The plan is sold by Traplet in England and I think they have a new US agent recently.
    Plan is here http://www.trapletshop.com/us/p/11396/corby-starlet make sure you click on the US flag to get prices in dollars.

    If you want a copy of the article from RC ModelWorld August 1985 you need to ask at time of purchasing plans - at extra cost- as English magazines never include the instructions.

    RE: Corby Starlet Plans

    I found a build thread for this model here http://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/...s.asp?th=39652

    There is also a plan for a 52 inch Starlet published in RCME (RC Model Aeroplane in USA ) with a revised free plan in the October 2012 issue. see http://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/...s.asp?th=71573 ( note the comment on size errors! )

    my appreciation for the prompt replies and the follow-on post. while I am not the prospective builder, it looks neat enough that I may add it to my bucket list of planes.
