• Sunspot by Roy Yeabsley

    You can build it in just over a week and the total outlay is only a fraction of that needed for a petrol model. The ultra-light wing loading (weight is only 2,75 lbs.) rules out major crackups due to high-speed contact with cars and other obstacles on the deck. Exceptional stability enables you to keep flying when other jobs are grounded by rough weather.

  • Contest Gas Model by Frank Ehling

    A gas model must be fundamentally sound in design and construction to withstand the wear and tear of flying. The fact that this model is recommended by Frank Ehling, its designer and builder, is proof that it fulfills this foremost requirement.

  • One of the earliest gas-powered model designed by Herbet H. Dowsett

    The wonderful improvements that have been made in miniature internal-combustion engines in the last few years, (for which we have to thank the power boat men) have, given us a power unit, developing nearly half horse-power, the weight of which can be held down as low as 2 lb., excluding the flywheel, which, of course, is unnecessary in aircraft.

  • Flying Aces “T-Beam Gas Job” is here again

    We have published a short article about this nice midget gas job. I have got many requests to publish a better scan of this model during the last months. So guys here is it for you who are interested in build this gassie.

  • Air Youth Glider No.3 by W.F.Tyler

    The third and final design in this series of classroom projects bears a close resemblance both in appearance and construction to actual, full-size utility gliders. Two-ply Bristol board, stiff cardboard, assorted pine strips, a nose block of scrap pine or balsa, light model tissue, cement, dope and a paper clip for the simple wire fittings complete the list of required materials.

  • Paragon by Paul Plecan

    Here, boys, is a CLASS “C” contest model that refuses to stay on the ground. During its ramblings through the ozone, it has had its share of roof-top and tree-top landings, yet it’s still in one piece! What’s more, all repair work that’s been necessary has been minor.

  • Miss Philadelphia IV by Maxwell Bassett

    Undoubtly, many of you model builders have been looking for plans for a gas model which can easily be built, and which will fly consistently and well. Here is just what you want—Miss Philadelphia IV—and the skeptical builder who needs proof of her ability must merely consider the performances of the original ship, and the records that it established.

  • The Pylon Buster by Armand Vasquez

    Here is a gas model that is a contest threat in every sense of the word. It was designed with just one thought in mind—to prove that “pylons” are not necessary. The consistent and high performance this model turns in is a direct result of the constant improvement and refinement that has gone into several models of the same design during the past three years.

  • Lozierův experimentální model

    Herb Lozier navrhl v roce 1938 zajímavý model, který je určen pro pohon jak spalovacím, tak elektrickým motorem. Plánek s krátkým popisem byl otištěn v říjnovém vydání časopisu Flying Aces v témže roce. Model samotný má několik neobvyklých konstrukčních prvků (krom možnosti alternativního pohonu elektromotorem) a celý je navržen s ohledem na co nejnižší možnou hmotnost.

  • Flying Aces “T-Beam Gas Job”

    Many gas modelers with limited working space have found that the larger power jobs are difficult to handle. Here, therefore, is a neat ship with a wing-span of but 54″, that is rugged, simple, dependable. Wing-span is 300 sq. in.
