About this Plan

Deluxe Jr. Rubber cabin sport model.

Quote: "Deluxe Jr. A simple rubber model of a design that proved practical in several other sizes. By Dick Ealy.

THIS model is presented for beginners who like to build rubber models. However, it can easily be scaled up to two or three times its size by those who want to build Class A and B gas models. The design is a basic one that has proven itself over many years of flying as a fine all around design. Another version along the same lines was the author's DeLuxe (oz3494) Class C gas job in the November 1945 issue of MAN.

Read instructions carefully before starting construction. Make both fuselage sides first from 1/32 sq medium balsa. When glue is dry, rest fuselage on top longerons and put crosspieces in at stations A and C. These are same width. Prop sides up and use triangle to square sides with bench. Wait for glue to dry; then taper longerons at rear inside to match when pulled together.

Cement the rear, and after it is dry add 3/32 cross-pieces cut to fit, from C to G. Make nose-block from medium balsa 5/8 x 1-1/8 x 1-7/8 in. Drill 3/8 dia hole for nose plug. Notch block to receive longerons and cement block in place. Add front crosspieces in fuselage.

The top or cabin is made next. Cut bulkheads A through G out of 1/16 sheet balsa and cement in place. Make the cabin top in streamline form out of 1/16 sheet balsa. Cut a notch about half way through on underside, just back of bulk-head C. Crack or bend the wood down and place on top of bulkheads A through E. Cement the top in place and add a 3/32 sq stringer from E to rear, to finish cabin..."

* 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.


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.
