    No Doug I don't use a dumbphone I'm not clever enough.😊 I've seen Hovercraft plans in some of the on line plans services such as Outerzone Pocket Aeronautics etc . Have a good Google Good luckπŸ‘ Oh ! by the way I think a skirt is essential. Some rubberised/plasticised THIN fabric is the best stuff to use or if notπŸ‘ oiled silk if you can get it.πŸ€”

    Mornin' John,
    Just left click on the Adobe icon so the Media Gallery opens with the larger icon.
    Left click on [Download], top left corner of the media gallery window.
    Windows will then ask you if you want to Save or Open the file.
    left click 'Open', your pdf reader will open it. You can then save it to wherever you want.
    If you are using a 'Dumbphone' - I don't knowπŸ€” I don't!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Mzee,
    this any good?
    Skirt is essential to reduce lifting power needed to something practicable.
    This plan includes building instructions, also for the skirt!πŸ‘
    It's pretty plain but I guess you can use some fantasy / imagination on the superstructure😁
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Many thanks Boaty Dave. I will certainly follow your leads. Having had to give up all flying I'm trying to maximise use of all their 'innards'. So far two Skimmers and a part made Lippisch boundary layer "plane" so next in the odds box is the hovercraft.

    I'll geep you all in the loop on this.

    Hi Mzee

    Re hovercraft, it may be worth looking at information around models by the late Ray Malmstrom. He was an ace when it came to designing unorthodox models and another source would be the Plans Handboook. I remember this in the mid 1960s and there was plenty to choose from as they had a special section on such. This included anything from hydroplanes, prop driven racing cars and hydrofoils etc.

    Another source could be the Eagle Annual from around the same period. Though the Eagle was a comic, the Annual did have articles around the latest technology of the day. Even if you could not obtain the Annual itself I am sure there would be archives on the internet.

    Hope you have success with your venture, it sounds exciting.

    Boaty😁😎

    Is it a boat; is it a 'plane? Having made a very simple hovercraft back in 1954 (I think!!), I am now thinking of making another but need some assistance from anyone who has gone into this fascinating aspect, in the form of drawings and whether or not a skirt is necessary. My first model was Baby Bee powered and free running - R/C wasn't as miniature then as it is now!!
    Pic shows the models I left with friends when we left Kenya in 1963 - the hovercraft is on the left next to the c/l flying saucer!
