Hi Kim,
Back in our Cox (pre-High school) days, the girls were easily just as good flyers. They just rode girl Mustang bikes.
Natural, at getting the crowd control of the younger kids that got in our way.
We had boyfriend/girlfriends, before we knew what that it was all about.
As far as I know, no one got pregnant flying Cox.049s here... Very Happy
Bell bottom pants, and Disco distanced us... Smile

Hi gg,
I have read both Laumer/Thornburg books.
Model airplane philosiphy to me. I returned the borrowed books.
I loaned out my 'Andy Lennon, Model Airplane Design' book and did not get it back.
I have a well used Martin Simons 'Model Aircraft Aerodynamics' book to trade...

Take care,
Have fun,
Dave

Finished 6th grade in Biloxi, MS. Summer, moved to Hawaii. Started 7th grade at the Intermediate School (now called "Mid"). Valentines Day, brought all the girls in my homeroom class, valentine cards. This was a school in rural Hawaii, heavily Polynesian - Hawaiian, Samoan, Tongan, Maori, Fijian with Chinese, Guamanian, Japanese (Okinawan), Portuguese, Filipino, and etc.

Little did I know that they did not do this tradition there. I had them in my leather brief case given by my mother. I didn't know that as such, I was a nerd. Felt so embarrassed because there was not card exchange like in Biloxi. Later, one of the girls asked me if I had a card for her. I was so embarrassed that I said "no". If I knew better, I should have said, "sure". (Hindsight is 20-20. Laughing )

Dave, it is never too late to recoup, book is still available through on-line stores, example:
Biblio.com search: author="Andy Lennon" title="Model Airplane Design"

Of course if you do the search from your locale, it would be in CA Burning Cash and with CA shipping. Hats Off

showed this book, which I also used to check out when available at a library.

Found a used one at a reasonable price and placed an order for it today. I thought it interesting that H.R. Warring (UK), known for his pre-Peter Chinn engine reviews, would show a drawing of the 20-in. (508 mm) Ken Willard (US) designed Roaring 20 single channel aircraft, that a number of us here including myself have built and flown.

My Cox .020 Pee Wee powered Roaring 20 from 1973.

That goes to show that also supported by the fact that CEF is an International community, that country borders are no obstacle to the universally understood language of model aircraft and other modeling modes of transportation. This is the same language we all speak.

Hi gg,

Thanks very much for the Andy Lennon link ! Appreciated !
I will try to balance this laptop, while taking a poop...
I prefer hardbound books though ! Very Happy

Gr7 and 8 dances were a weird time in music.
One teacher put the latest Beatles etc, next one was like polkas. (I like polkas, don't get me wrong!)
Gail, (the first one to get a Swordsman inverted and upright and land around here) and I were dancing.
Not even close to puberty.
All dressed up, turning on the dance floor, talking about everything. Else.
Miles apart now, we are still friends. To this day.
Hope you like this story, (Cox engines were involved)
Take care,
Have fun,
Dave

I remember this thread. I probably should've bought that Keith Laumer book when I saw it. I too prefer having a physical copy.

I should have bought it then too. When you started this thread they were cheap. Money Toss But, although I paid a little more, still considering everything, got what I wanted.

The book came in a week ago. Book shows suggested retail $1.45, it has a Revco price sticker of $0.49. Revco was a chain of drugstores in Ohio, probably since long gone. After tax and shipping, I paid a touch under $26.00 for it, quite a difference between then and now. (Scads of copies were sold back then, but is rare to find, now.) Given inflation, book would have retailed for about $14.00 today.

Inside, says copyright 1965, 1966, so it was then or some time after it sold. It is the size of a standard paperback book, paper is halfway between newsprint and white bond. Published by ARC Books of New York, 168 pages, got a lot of neat illustrations, even shows a mislabeled as .049, Cox Sportsman .15 pen and ink 3D drawn to mimic a photo. I don't think Cox made that reed valve engine in a smaller size. Later I'll share additional photos from it.
