Default What is my CL Plane - 1953 ?

All,

Does anyone know what my plane from 1953 is? The kit was bought in central NJ and a second identical kit in PA?? The wingspan ins 42 inches.

Pix 1 is as retrieved from the attic after 50 years.

Pix 2 is the repair job underway in 2024...Silkspan.

Inverted Super Ringmaster. Meaning the motor, I am building one that was a Micro Models version. About ready to lay on the Silk. Balance point is at line down control. When balanced properly it will be a great flyer. Several that I’ve seen the motor is up right. Many I’ve seen have a McCoy 29 or 35.AJ.

Greg and AJ,

Thanks..it is nice to know what I have. The 1953 plane was built, and flown and crashed several times until retiring to my attic for the next 50 years. My cousin bought me a second kit for Christmas in 1954, not knowing I already had one! So that plane was also built, but never doped over and flown. When this first rebuild is done, I can proceed to finishing up the second plane, 70 years later!!
