Description* :
I am not selling a kit, only a two new, full-size copies of kit plans + parts patterns for the shadow & pee wee sportster 32" .02 powered free flights.Don mcgovern's enterprise models semi-scale free flight kit named the shadow was popular when i was a boy in 1948. O.K. Cub .049 and spitzy .045 1/2-a engines had just out. The models were a match for the new engines & were sure to fly right off your building board. The shadow has a 32" span. It is a piper cub-like design that just looked good even if you were a rookie in building models. The super detailed plans by don mcgovern (later to become editor of flying models) have all of the fuselage parts pattern clearly shown as well as the wing root rib outline. When the cox pee wee .02 came out, the plan was redrawn and the model re-named and re-issued as the 32" pee wee sportster. But don mcgovern's name was left off of the plan. So much for loyalty! I have added a photo of the classic old handy hints column showing how we old timers used to make our wing ribs from just one root rib pattern (photo 10). Stack the number of sheets of balsa in between your two patterns and shave, sand or rasp away the excess balsa. Now you have wing ribs for half of your wing. Do this again for the other half. Just leave the half-ribs off! The wing has 2 spars. So it is not going to twist under power. Modern glues are way stronger than they were in 1948. I hope i haven't insulted you with this lesson in scratch building. No magazines today regularly teach newcomers to the hobby "how to do it". When i was young, every magazine had regular columns teaching such matters. These super-stable, small-field free flights can be converted to rc by anyone who has ever scratch-built a model before. Using just rudder control is more fun than you can imagine. I have added a vintage article on flying rudder-only single channel rc models. I am not selling a kit, only 2 new, full-size copies of kit plans. You are purchasing clean, new, full-size copies ... Read More
