Hi Scott

I can sort you out with a set of plans. PM details. Used in late '70's/ early '80's by Ken. In fact, it was the first model I used in competition. The model in the photo was a kit prototype and uses a foam deck to eliminate a lot of carving of 1/2" and triangular. Foam wing and tail.

Those period colour schemes were amazing. I'll bet they were a nightmare to patch up or was it a case of 'oops, I've scratched it - bin it!' ? nerd

I agree they did look great, I cheated with the colour scheme on the Jupiter by using solartrim easy to patch as i have found out when the retracts stuck up.

Love that Jupiter, Any more details, a new one on me?

Looks similar to the Superstar/ Curare/ Capricorn. Gorgeous.

Derek, did you take the Jupiter to Sleap the other year? That's one smart looking model allright.

Steve,

Thanks for the drawings, still working on trying to get them open for printing. I can use a viewer to look at them.

With regard to details of the Jupiter I bought the model second hand around mid eighties and flew it until 1992. It then sat in my garage roof until 2008 when I repainted it and restored the retracts to working condition. As you can imagine it flies very nicely although i am only a sports flyer and i am sure it can do much more.

I cant tell you much more about the history of the model, I don't think it was produced as a kit and I feel it may of been built specially for competitions in the late seventies early eighties. I have never seen or heard of another and would love to find out more about it.

I did take the model to Sleap but didn't fly it although I did fly my Capricorn (See Pic)

Heres my Pete Russell 'Striker'. All being well it will soon sport a Webra 61 and it will be flown on a Kraft series 71 or a Skyleader Clubman Super, converted with new encoders & Frsky modules.
