October 1972 American Aircraft ModelerTable of Contents
Some things never grow old. These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, & Young Men captured the era. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
Here are plans for the Texas BoWeevil that I electronically scanned from page 23 of my purchased copy of the October 1972 American Aircraft Modeler magazine. The BoWeevil is a hand-launched glider that won 1st place in the Open and 2nd place in the Senior categories of the 1970 AMA Nationals in Chicago, followed by other wins as well. You might be able to scale up the image below if suitable plans cannot be located. Plans for this fine model were drawn by Mr. Don Chancey. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

The AMA Plans Service offers a full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing plans also help to support the operation of the Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1 advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.
