dug out the 1995 plans. power is 1.20 OS Glow. where plans originated ?? they are many times photo enlarged, back in the days when upscaling by commerial was cheap. as usual float planes on grass aren't the best even with wheels and all the water in front of my house is SALT Water, here on the Bay of St. Louis, Miss-- just west of Gulfport, Miis, or 70 miles East of New Orleans. cought be repowered and in the air in a few long hours. right now its upscaling a 2.375" drwg of a Dornier DO 13 Delphin111, to 81". ask more. dick

Can you tell me where you got the plan. I built one from old aeromodeller plans in th 1960's , Control Line Scale placed in many comps with it in Ireland Now I would like an R/C version for flying off lakes.

Morning. sorry to say that my plans and the W-29 do not exist any more. Hurricane Katrina took everything last August. we are now relocated to Louisina and trying to put the pieces back together, at 81+ years young its takeing a lot longer than I would like. anyhow my plans were mine, enlarged from a small 3 view. will look thru some of my new reference books for 3 vu's to send to you. send me a mail address via email. dick stamm

Can you tell me where you got the plan.
My 1:6 scale plans (88") came from Cleveland Models:
http://www.clevelandairline.com/ASP/PRODUCT.asp
Cost $24US for enlarged rubber-powered construction plans. An experienced scratch-builder can adapt these plans to R/C, since they may be the only game in town.
Also recommend the Windsock Datafile #55 for the best documentation and scale reference that I'm aware of.
Good luck, Airbolt...and I hope you're on the path to recovery, Dick.
