In that era, it was more Webra, OS, SuperTiger and Rossi I think. YS really came onto the scene with force in the 80's when the F3A schedules went to turn "turnaroud" format, which was in '84.
Were those engines rear exhaust with pipes?

No. Mostly they were side exhaust. Most were run with mufflers till that later 70's, then pipes became the norm. The RE engines were more early 80's.

Mike,

Are you familiar/or have an opinion on the Miss Norway (MKII)?

Ok guys, I'm getting nolstagic in my old age.

I'm looking for a few specific models either kits or nicely built:

I'm pretty sure you could design an old style pattern plane in your sleep. I'm sure a lot of guys would want to buy one too. Come on, Mike. Twist some arms at Hangar 9 and get it done for us.

I bought an old pattern plane at a swap meet. Not sure what it is. It says "custom built by Ed Mills" inside. Looks like the fuselage was carved out of a solid piece of balsa!. Ever heard of this guy??
Yeah. We have an ed Mills here, but it may not be the same guy. He's in his 80s now, but he's a heck of a guy and still flies pretty good.....good enough to win the last fun fly.

Picked up a couple of glass fuses at an auction.....might be persuaded to sell 'em...Lighter colored one is a Magic....the darker one is a Tipp.

I have Phoenix 8 and a Magic, both are partially assembled. Both wings are assembled and both fuse's are partially assembled. Shoot me an offer if you're still looking for one.

Here are the pictures of the Phoenix 8. The servo lead poking out is an old expert retract servo. The Magic is currently in his buddies basement, I'll get pictures of that as soon as I get a chance.

Mike,

Dad has a dirty birdy sitting in his basment that is framed up. He might let it go...

Greetings Mike,
i too am from the old pattern world and love the designs. I was good friends of Merle Hydes when he lived in Yuma, AZ, and my father in law and I would travel to many of the West coast pattern contests flying with Phil Kraft and Steve Helms and The young Jim Kimbro, I also framed a few Curare's for Bill Hemple senor and built several other designs for many other folks.
I currently have just finished 3/4 oz ing a Scratch built Kimbro Deception and have fond memory of Jim doing his rolling runs just feet off the deck at the old Miles Squire Park in fountain Valley, Calif.
Jim sold me a set of cores that he had cut many years ago and believe or not finally Used them.
I'm from the old school when it comes to finish's and always believed there should have been a trophy for the Prettiest painted Pattern bird .
I'm sure you probably know , but just in case you haven't heard Bill Hemple senors son David has taken over the Hobby Barn in Tucson and they are re kitting the Supe Curare that they kitted many years ago, they are also working on a few other designs as well,
I've been a big fan of yours as well and give you a Big thumbs up on many of your designs my friend 😊
Kind Regards,
Richard Preston
Yuma,AZ.
