There are 2 new plans on the Plans Page thanks to Sergio Montes. They are the models that won the World Championships in 1954 and 1958 for Australia.

Aeromodelling Trail Blazers
There is a new Trail Blazers Page which hopefully will show models that have changed the course of aeromodelling over the years. If you have plans of any such models and you would like them on the page please send me a copy and some details of the plane and designer.
