Here are the 3 views I built a Polecat from in the late 80's. Pic is a young Wormz taken Nov 1990.
We were using the polecat in IMAC until we got a Laser going.
Scale was 1/3.5, 64" Span. 11lbs. Webra 90. 12x12 prop. Cooling was by the scale vents ducted. Had about 100 flights on it. Glass fuse. Increased tail plane area slightly.
A good source of 3 views is "The Air Racer" by Mendenhall. It will be well out of print, I got my copy from the Daton Museum in 1980 but there may be a copy in a 2nd hand book shop.

Polecat is a great Formula 1 airplane for sure. I'm working on a Kelly F1-D for the new NMPRA Electric Formula 1 class right now.

Here are the only photos I could find when I built my Polecat. Quility is not good as my original source was a couple of small pics in a mag which I photographed. No scanners back then.
