Give M.A.N. a call and ask for a copy of the articles in the issues you have indentified. I'm sure they can accommodate you.

Default Fowler flap help

I've got the March '97 issue of MAN. In fact, I used those ideas to implement Fowler Flaps on a Telemaster 40. Haven't flown it yet, but it looks real cool! The tricky part is getting the linkages and attachment points correct, but I used a CAD package that does motion simulation and got it right on paper before cutting any balsa.

PM to me if you can't get reprints from MAN.
