Default Lou Proctor Antic Magazine Article?

The cover photo of the Oct 1970 issue of RCM was of Lou Proctor's then-new Antic on floats. However, there was no article inside about his new kit. Does anyone know if/when an article or product review was done in RCM or any of the other model magazines?

Thanks,

Harvey

It was in Model Airplane News about mid 60's, I think. I had that article for years even after building the Antic and the Parasol version. Great flying models and were more than worth the effort required to build them.

I just discovered this reply to my 7-20-2016 post. Can someone with access to MAN Archives trace this to a specific issue of MAN?

I may be wrong but I don't think the Proctor Antic kit came out until the later '60s (I got mine for Christmas 1969).

I would appreciate the help. I wouldn't hesitate to (re)subscribe to MAN just to access their magazine archives for this but I'd hate to find out that it wasn't in MAN after all, but a different mag.

I have a 2008 MAN Plans Guide - the Antic is not listed. Neither is it in Model Builder's or RCM's listings that I have.
The last guy I sent negative information to jumped all over me. But, he is in Canada, I guess the cold weather makes you grumpy.

Default A plans-built Antic?

Eloy,

The Antic was (and still is) a kit put out by Proctor Enterprises. I don't believe the plans were ever made available separately for the scratchbuilders. With all of the specialized (i.e. difficult-to-find) hardware required for the build, such as the many micro turnbuckles, starting out with only plans would likely become a frustrating exercise in resourcefulness!

An Antic may have been a construction feature in the RCM "Kits and Pieces" column by Bernie Murphy. Look here: RCLibrary : Aeromodelling library. Out of print books, magazines and catalogues. Free downloads. You may have to do a few downloads to find it.

Thanks Michael. The website only shows the Nov '67 issue of RCM. Are there any other issues or is that the only one scanned in so far?
