You don’t see too many scale model plans for dirigibles but we have one in this issue, donated by the author. It’s a non flying scale version of the R-101 and would make a really great attention getter as a display model.
Thanks to Bob Spielman, a long time subscriber, we have video that I find both humorous and frightening at the same time. See page six.
How about an Embryo size rubber powered model, but this time a twin? Looks easy to build and like it would be a lot of fun.

Talking about something really unusual, you can build a flying lawnmower called appropriately, the YARD BIRD.
I wonder if it could be miniaturized to make an indoor electric powered RC model?

Here’s a real oldie for this month’s magazine download. POPULAR AVIATION for February 1929. A column by Bert Pond about models and lots of model airplane kit ads in the back pages. Looks like publication started in about 1926.
Gears for rubber powered models aren’t seen much, but at one time were quite popular in England.
Gears ... Without Fears!
A rare 1942 book from England by H.J. Towner and Howard Boys titled “Scale Model Aircraft That Fly” was mentioned in the rubber model gears article. Since we had a copy it has been digitized and is our book download for this issue of RCMW. I could only find one copy for sale on the internet and that was priced at $38.
