KITTIWAKE, a British design from Aeromodeller that is a twin rubber powered floatplane.

An article on using scrap offset aluminum printing plates to make model wings is an interesting use of material that can often be picked up free at your local newspaper printing plant.

Walt Musciano, who is known for his scale U-Control models designed the CONSOLIDATED PB-2A model, a sort of transition between the WW1 and WWII fighter designs. It never saw combat service but was an important step between the two methods of design.

We’re all familiar with the Junkers “STUKA” of WWII fame but Douglas Rolfe presents his drawings of Junkers history here. An interesting take on a wide range of designs starting with WWI and up to some very advanced designs including a flying wing.

“And now for something completely different” to borrow a phrase from the British Flying Circus programs.

RASSITOODUS is certainly different, featuring a canard model, powered by a pylon mounted gas engine. From a late 1930’s Fawcett book, I’ve never seen one fly but would certainly like to. I suppose the only way would be to build one myself.
