While there's been little mention of it, I recall Kim making good use of early mornings drinking coffee and reading old American Modeller mags. Years back Sterling ran a contest in regards to the Ringmaster. One would modify and decorate the Ringmaster. There was some very very cool and interesting models built. Uncle Sam was one, another was a locomotive and the stack did smoke from the engine exhaust. The "Flying Man" was another which was probably one of the most remembered. My flying partner Dan has had one of these original Flying Man Ringmaster's for the past 40 years. While not in my possession as of yet, he's decided to pass this historical relic on to me to restore. I know Kim has had to come across these in those old magazines. Sterling in fact at one point offered customized Ringmaster kits for those to participate in these fun events. This is great stuff and I'm going to offer this Flying Man the ability to take to the air once again. I'm happy that Dan has offered me the chance to fix it.

Never seen or heard of this before. It looks awesome, and cannot wait to see the finished product. Should look very neat.

I have seen those here and there. I didn’t know about the locomotive, that one sounds really cool.

Ken, here’s a webpage about the 1962 American Modeller Annual issue with the Flying Men article:

http://www.airplanesandrockets.com/airplanes/david-j-holland-flying-man-1962-am-annual.htm

I have these in a .pdf file, but for the life of me I can’t remember where I downloaded it.

Mark , that's a cool find. I'm glad you found the magazine as well. I was wondering if Kim had that mag. I know this Ring will be able to hang like a Bi-Slob as mentioned in the article as the sabre dance. Surprisingly, this moldy oldie is light.A lot has to be said for the imagination back then. After seeing the r/c guys flying these foam board hot glue planes yesterday, it makes me wonder if the hobby has gone backwards. Ken

Checking for that and follow-up articles that I know I've seen. While not the same deal, so far this morning, all I have to offer is this from the January '59 issue of Model Airplane News:

Love the "Flying Man." Before pictures are great, can't wait to see the afters when your restoration is complete.

You reached back a bit to get this one Eric.  Nice to revisit some old posts, especially this one.

I have read at breakfast almost every morning for the last fifty years.  Newspapers, books - dozens of books, magazines everything from Automobile to Smithsonian magazine.  Currently I'm finishing Richard Bongs book (Mike O'Connor) Ace of Aces.  

Been dreading the last chapter that I started this morning because I already knew the ending when he died testing the then new Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star.  The book filled in the details that I did not know as the crash was witnessed by several people.  The engine emitting black smoke gave out on takeoff at about 400 feet.  Dick was seen trying to exit the aircraft pulling his chute and getting tangled in the shrouds.  

Haven't got to the results of the investigation yet.
