I’m a new member here. My main interests are Rubber Scale and Old Timers.
I’m looking for a copy of an article in Model Airplane News from either 1973 or 1974, not sure what month, about a FF Rubber plane called “Mugwump”. I think it was either a Mulvihill or Coupe d’Hiver plane. It had a crescent shaped wing and tail planform, similar to a “Speckled Bird”. An interesting feature was that it had no vertical fin. The tail had polyhedral in it, creating the side area necessary. I beleive the fuselage was also an airfoil-shaped “lifting fuselage”.
I can’t remember what month or who the author was. I had a subscrption the MAN as a kid from ’73 to ’74, so I’m sure it appeared during that time frame. I can’t rememeber if it was contest winner.
Any help would be appreciated. If you can correct my memory of this plane, or have the article in question, please let me know. At a minimum, I’m looking for a scan of the article and plan as published. Best case would be to buy a copy of the full-size plans from someone. MAN doesn’t list it in there plans list, I looked.
