Weatherman plans?

Weatherman plans?

Post  KariFS on Thu Nov 09, 2017 5:03 am

"Weatherman" is an old speed plane design by Cyril Shaw, published in Model Aviation circa 1949. There is a competition series of several different size classes ranging from 1cc to over 6cc engines.

A fellow hobbyist here in Finland would like to build one but has trouble finding a good copy of the plan. We have checked Outerzone, and googled, and he has checked some other places but all that is found are very grainy postage-stamp-sized copies Huh...

Does anyone here have a copy perhaps?

Thanks fellas Smile As Elwood Blues would put it, "I got a couple of leads, few phone numbers", but a lot of the info was old, and since the class was and maybe still is somewhat popular in Sweden, I figured the plan copies would be around. The Swedes have added their own "0-class", that is max 1cc glow or diesel and the plan is scaled down to 14" wingspan.

Here is a copy that surfaced yesterday, the most readable so far. I'll attach it below for anyone interested and also for the benefit of future potential Weatherman racer would-be's and Googlers Thumbs Up
