The BMJR Scout  was developed from a hand drawn plan from Joe dated 1996. When it was announced 1/2A Stunt was to be flown at  the 2019 Brodak fly-in , we  pulled it down and built  one.  Turned out to be a fun “nostalgic” build.   Only changes for the 1950 design was to simplify the build with laser cutting technology. Model has a 25 3/4” span with 128 sq. in of area,  designed for the Cox reed valve engines popular in the 1950’s.  Our Scout turned out to be a good flyer at 8 oz. on 40’  lines.  With a Cox “black widow” , we found it very capable flying  the Old Time  Stunt pattern. 

“The VECO “SCOUT” was my first kitted U-control design – and, as far as I know, was also the first kitted 1/2A True Stunt Model. Sometime after I left VECO (late fall, 1954) its management (Gil and Jack Henry) had the Scout redesigned. But the new & improved kit still contained the same assembly plans as the original 1950 version”,   Joe Wagner
