I think I understand what you mean. Thanks!

andy kunz tide and slo mo plans

the andy kunz tide and slo mo plans were available from FLYING MODELS MAGAZINE the last time i checked about 6 months ago.

andy's tide plan is very nicely drawn with a separate template sheet for easy enlargement. a clean simple design with a relatively easy to build cowl.

that's another one on my list for a 46 inch gas power project. i think this is another overlooked "sleeper" design that should run well.

i don't know about the copyright situation but would be great to have andy's tide plan available again.

garry, i'd love to see that lauterbach plan become a reality. take a good look at the 31 foot 1958 miss u.s. IV lauterbach unlimited. longer than the the 66-67 chrysler crew and '75 lauterbach special. the 20 ft gp class lauterbachs have oversized cowls that are not proportional with the hull in my opinion.

So do I!! The plans seem to me to be a little Unique in That Tide had an offset body. The plans were drawn offset for our type of racing. I have mostly converted to Cad but the formers are a little off size - I just need time to figure it all out! Plus I want to move some formers to make the eggbox approach easier.

Fist I must finish the Notre Dame, Atlas and Thriftwaytoo kits!!

Any updates? I've been watching a few of these threads for a while, but without valuable input, have decided not to clutter.

Thanks.

Just as a side note: My son and I built a 1/10th version of the Finlay/Dave Frank Oberto for 1/10th scale for this season and have been racing it with the Puget Sound Fast Electric club. It made a very nice light boat and has been running very nicely. We tweaked the cowling a bit to get it more scale in appearance, but other than that is was pretty much as described above with flipping the two sponsons around.

Thanks. If the plans are not available, then perhaps someone could post a few pictures of the bottom of the hull. That would definitely help.

8255 is defiantly a good choice of hull for a scale application, with the proper setup, these will stay on the water and fly like a bat out of he**!!
