Today I learned from Peter Seelig that his father Hans passed away on June 9th 2012.
Hans Seelig successfully flew F1C and produced the ‘Seelig-timers’ used ubiquitously in generations of free flight models.

The contest was conducted by the Pensacola Free Flight Team, Paul Grabski, Contest Director. Our contest was completely washed out on Saturday the 9th. The results shown here are for the hardy few who showed up on Sunday and fought through long rain delays to obtain their results. The rainfall was record setting.

Kev's F1C Quest
That F1C looks very much like a Veterano derivative. If so, it was originally a Ray Monks design.
Stafford flew them when he came back to
FF around 1980, later developing the design to suit himself. If plans
are available, they'll most likely be in Free Flight News but will be
quite old, since neither Ray or Stafford have flown that design for a
quite a while. Your best shot would be to contact Simon directly for
details of his current version.
F1C wanted by Kevin Moseley.
The model at the recent British Nats looks very much like Stafford’s F1C in Aeromodeller magazine, page 70 February 1985.
