A note from Uncle Bill

"Wildflower season about over as summer approaches. We didn't have many April showers, but there are still a few May flowers. Hope similar conditions maintain in your neighborhood. Nice M/C weather! *sob*

The models attached have a story behind them. When I started teaching in Jr.High 52 years ago, I started a model airplane club: The Sepulveda Basa Butchers. I am still in touch with a few of the members after all these years! Last week, a young chap I have not seen in half a century called me up and wanted the plans for one of the old models I designed for the kids back then. He now has grandkids! Not having the foggiest where a plan would be, I made a couple this AM from memory. Called the Mini-Wog and Poly-Wog.( winsgspans about 10"- flew on one loop of 2mm rubber)) They flew pretty well for quickie models or 1/32" sheet balsa wings, and it you lost one up and out of sight in a thermal, big deal...easy to make another! Flights of over a minute may not seem like much to you, but to an 11 yr. old kid!"

A note from Bruce

"Beriev Be-4 Three bladed prop as only 2 inch radius. Delicate prop OK as there is plenty of Five mile an hour bumper.

Joe Barish is building a lot of indoor RC. He uses the European Delprom foam with a hard surface."
