The engine is an old MVVS picked up off of eBay, with an Irvine .40 muffler. The previous owner must've been a Texaco flyer. The inner diameter of that snorkel decreases on the way down to a pin hole and it runs a really long time! Starts on one flip (sometimes two).

Famous Free-Flight Models - Wallchart by Paul Plecan, dated 1974.
Since general interest in Old Timer models has sustained at a high level for well over a decade, it seemed timely to work up a chart showing many of the famous F/F designs of the past 40 years. The results shown here, while fairly comprehensive, are not intended to be the ultimate "word" on the subject. Some of the dates are approximate, but in the case of published construction articles, publication date is given. A general chronological order is followed, but some profiles were juggled around to fit the layout better. All the profiles are to a common scale. The wing span figure is for the "flat" or plan size, (before dihedral) and length is for the fuselage only, excluding the prop.
