Whippet plans, anybody???
« on: June 29, 2010, 03:51:50 PM »

Hi, I'm trying to find plans of the old Whippet hydros which were so popular before and just after the War, but I can't find the tracing I did at Pitsea Museum Library and Mills Boatyard won't play ball (he makes full sized replicas)
Has anyone got any leads on these, please?

Well that will please Vintagent , he has a Frog engine for it, but it isnt the Whippet he is after. The full-size Whippet is a bit like a Crackerbox, two seater from the days when there was a driver and riding mechanic/nagigater, I mean navigator..oh I dont know maybe I was right !

Yup, that's the one, arrow5.
But drkomen?  Could you send that plan a little bigger by any chance?  It wouldn't do anything but pixellate, but as arrow says, that, with a Frog engine is just too tempting, ain't it?  Miniature rudder servo (which I have!)  No throttle, just go.

Could you tell me where you got it from?  Perhaps I could download it from there a bigger size.

For reference generally, but it won't blow up without pixellating too much. Never mind. Nice try.
Thanks Drkomen.

Doh!!  just realised that I'm speaking to the boss of the tethered fellas tonight about a different matter, so I'll ask him then. It's their site.
