Does anyone know if there are plans to produce short kits of the 'Mignon' plan in the Feb 2018 issue?

100_0269.jpgRegret I do not have a source of kits. But here are photographs of my "Mignon 150" (so called cos it is 150% of original) - copied from RC&M plan and enlarged using Posterazor. AUW is just below 6lb with 5000mAh battery, ply fuselage, built up wing, covering Solarfilm (soon to be mourned!). Waiting on the weather now!100_0270.jpg

I know this is a really old thread but just in case anyone does a search on the Mignon, it's not a hard model to build even without a set of cut parts. It's a very economical design from the viewpoints of both materials and effort and goes together very nicely - despite my ability to snatch total balls ups from the jaws of triumphant artistry.

I hope to have mine finished and flying in a couple of weeks.

Mignon 150 flies like a dream! Stable, no vices, handles will on the ground too!

Excellent!! Mine will be getting some air under it's wings on Friday, weather ( and completion ) permitting. I've mucked about with the wing tips because I like the look, and it didn't get a cowl, but I am still quite pleased

I loved this plane and flew it to destruction. Sadly due to a house move I have lost my original plans, can anybody supply me with them or copy them, I would gladly cross their palm with silver.
