Here is what the blurb about the cover has to say:
"... Of the fine Rudy Arnold kodachrome on this month's cover, one could not say that it "just happened." But, given the task of color-photographing an RC Model, Rudy called over the young modeler with the fanciful helmet, Spike Yulke. His daf, Ed, then rounded out the group. Arnold is long famous aviation photographer. The model is one of thre MAN X-jobs. ..."
It should be noted that Ed Yulke was a frequent contributor to MAN on scale and radio control topics.
About the Model
In the above blurb, "X-Planes" refers to three experimental model airplanes that were built by Model Airplane News to investigate and document new developments in multi-channel radio control. The experimentation was done by the next issue when an article entitled "Notes on Multi" appeared with drawings for the three experimental planes.
