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.

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