Do endeavor to build a Cloud Tramp (any size).  Good for medium sized fields on up, AND, there is the annual MIMLOCT (Memorial International Mass Launch Of Cloud Tramps) that takes place on the first Saturday of August.

It's a neat airplane and seems to last forever (unless HUNG really wants it).  Modifications allowed to a certain extent.

Applehoney,

Thanks for the Cloud Tramp. Alas, it is not the one I am looking for. But it goes into my digital plan stash. You never know . . .

Ed, that will give me something to go on now. I found (4) ROG a/c that may fit your description (3) of which I can post here, but the fourth is too large to post. The Cloud Tramp from MAN 1954, if you give me your email in a PM to me Ill send the plans to the Cloud Tramp in a pdf.

Bob,

You are challenging my memory. But here goes. I graduated high school in 1964. So that would be a good end date. I have a framed cover from my first ever model aviation magazine, American Modeler from May 1960. But as I was collecting plans from previous years I would think a reasonable search period would be from 1955 through June 1964. I had a box full of those old MAN plans.

Ed, it is not problem since I use a flash drive to store MANY plans and would just search what may be the a/c by narrowing the year down. Could it be a certain age you were at or would there be some world event that happened at the time that you are remembering? I have a section of MODEL AIRPLANE NEWS PLANS.

Bob,
I cannot narrow it down any more than when you could buy a whole month's worth of plans for $.50. Please do not spend any time going through a ton of back issues on my behalf. Your time is better spent building models.

Regards,
Ed

Ed, do you remember a year or years? I may be able to research this for you.

Back in the old days you could buy all of the plans published each month by Model Airplane News for the princely sum of $.50, yep fifty cents. And you got them all on one very large piece of paper. One of those plan sets included a large all balsa stick rubber model. All sheet wings, a "stick" fuselage, and the rubber motor strung out underneath it. It was a small rubber stick model on steriods. The span was probably around 30 or more inches. I do not remember the name of the model but I think it was designed by a well known modeler of the day. Possibly Henry Struck. Any body remember this one? I actually had the plan but gave it and all the rest away in 1997, prior to moving overseas.  Or is this another product of a twisted mind?
