I built a BeeBug in about 1955! Had an ED 1 cc Diesel in and added a set of wheels. Used to cut the head off a 6" nail, knock it into the ground and then had a hole through the elevator to fit over the nail. Didn't need an assistant! Planning on building another now and have an O S Max 10 for it.

Tony made a comment - in reply to his comment some thoughts and photos [more pics 003-013]. The photos attached are actually of the Bee Bug that Tony built. I had the privilege of doing the maiden flight - such an honor. Tony did extremely well. About the images: People shown are Tony & Janine, Bernard & Petro and Jakes (who assisted us on the day). Janine congratulates Tony after the successful maiden flight and then they proceed to discus this little aero model. The maiden flight was done in the local Dutch Reformed Church's parking lot - it was only just wide enough. The Control Line fuel tank is one I made for Tony, and I assisted him in servicing & doing a test run on the OS Max .10 with the CL tank tested at the same time.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
