"So many cribs and grouses are heard about contest organisation from those Oliver Twisters who are never satisfied, that most of the complaints are not worth repeating. But when the most important of the timing queries came up at the Wakefield Eliminators, few of the contestants realised the great sporting gesture made by Bob Copland."

User comments:

I just loved reading the August 1951 issue of Aeromodeller as it was one I had never seen before. I was very taken by the article 'Convert the Dorland to Diesel Power'. I tried to track down a plan of the Dorland in my files, but wasn't able to. It must have been published in 1946 as there is a b&w photo of it flying in the October 1946 Aeromodeller and the cover of the November 1946 issue has a colour painting of this attractive model. I can imagine that modellers of vintage models, such as myself, would be motivated to build this diesel conversion if the plan of the Dorland was available. Please keep a lookout for it!!

Thanks for getting in touch Chris :) If anyone out there has a copy of the Dorland they could scan & share - please do! I'll also put a request on the Outerzone 'Wanted' page.
