    Since these have been public domain for about 50 years I suppose it's okay to post them.

    From my home town!

    Fritzw, is that welded or T&G?

    Here is the Heath Super Parasol, all T&G fuselage.

    A very good engine for the Heath is the 4AO84 engine off a surplus, 10 Kw military generator. They put out 40 to 45 hp at 3600 rpm and look and sound like a baby Continental A65. They weigh about 55 kilos.

    é muito bem-vindo, Diogo heron Macowski

    Definitely welded. I'm not sure what the "LN" signifies in the model name but the plans are dated 1957 and 1958.

    I like the "2 penny shingle nail" method in the 1929 Flying and Glider Manual plans but all those hard wire and Roebling splices seem like they'd be a real chore.

    You mean I was living there with an airplane factory, and no one told me???!!!:wonder:

    (Of course I was only 4-5 years old at the time!)

    I would like to know what models they produced when they were in Niles. Maybe that is what the 'N' was for???
