Default B-17 plan article

I bought a set of plans for a 120" B-17 designed by a man named Jan Hermkens of Norway. I am wondering if anybody might know where to get a copy of the construction article. The plans service in England is called RSQ and won't respond to my letters. HELP!

Default B17

Jan Hermkens is Dutch, there might be links through websites odf Dutch modellairplane clubs, but as far as I know, a complete set of instructions has never been published

Default B-17 plan article

Oh, I am building it! I used to have a copy of the article. Some friends of mine were stationed in England and got me a copy. Unfortunately, I have lost the article. But I have already cut out over half of the pieces and am working on the other half as we speak. The article was nice though as it had pictures, comments from the designer/builder and a bill of materials. If you are interested in a copy of the plans, Bob Holman of San Bernadino, California sells them and could probably fix you up. Holman also has fiberglass cowls and other pieces to complete it.

Tom, I have located the new distributer for the Jan Hermkens plans in England. They supply a very clean set of plans, as well as the canopies etc. for the plane. I just contacted them and they say they have the construction manual for the plane and will send it off to me today. If you are interested I will let you know if it is what you were looking for. However it does take some time to get the material from England.

If you are looking for the B-17 plans go to the web site http://www.Nexusonline.com/nexusdirect.html. They are the new distributeres for the Hermkens plans, they also sell the canopies, and may have the booklet to go along with the kit. They are sending me the manuel but it may take up to a month to get from England. John McMahon

Tom, sorry I got cut off half way through the first message, the web site for the plans etc. is http://www.nexusonline.com/nexusdirect.html. I have found that they are a good place to deal with, the delivery time is the only down side due to the long shipping time. ohn McMahon [email protected]

Long Islander,

Your link gives a 404 error, is there a typo in it?

Hi,

I've just bought these plans and was wondering if anyone ever got the construction article?

If so please could you email it or tell me where I might get it?

Rob
