R. F. L. Gosling Model numbers 57 to 62
No 57 & 63 "Redbreast".
I believe Gosling allocated the No 63 to the version above when it was published in Aeromodeller. See No 63
No 58 - Itzme III. 1938
No 59. Confusing, as it seems to be "No 53" which is 'Itzit'?
The following pictures of "heron" need little written comment.
No 61. 'Spider' of 1932. A complete contrast to No 60.

Information shows Itzme II was used succesfully for some years.
No 60 - "Heron" of 1939. Gosling's original, unrestored model resides with me.
To me, a truly elegant aeroplane. Probably not an easy model to construct.
No 62. "Ibis of 1936. I have no plan of this model
A simple 'phone number in those days!
Pictures don't match the plan!
No 60 - Original Gosling scale drawings
"Ibis" looks to me like a potentially fine model. A shame about the lack of plans.
Two more views. Note the numbers allocated under the fin.
This is the only part of No 58 Itzme III that I have that is identifiable.
