About this Plan

Sabre. Free flight scale jet fighter. IMP System. Ducted IC impellor design by Veron.

Quote: "This flying scale model of the Sabre F.86E, now in service with the American, Canadian and British NATO forces, heralds the second design in a series introducing to modelling a new and intriguing method of propulsion, the 'IMP SYSTEM,' being a diesel or glow-plug powered ducted impeller. This brilliant innovation devised and developed by Veron designer Phil Smith, enables you to make a faithful replica of a modern jet fighter and power it with your small motor without the propeller being visible, so preserving the characteristics of pure jet flight.

Designed for diesel and glow-plug motors from .5 cc up to .9 cc, the impeller included in the kit is made to suit all capacities of motor by variance of the blade pitch. Details are given on the plan for the installation of beam-mounted motors such as the ALLBON DART .5 cc, AMCO .87 cc and MILLS .75 cc. Details are also given for mounting an ELFIN .5 cc. The FROG 50 can also be adapted. Owing to the high running speeds required, a well run-in engine must be fitted or one which has had AT LEAST HALF AN HOUR TEST RUNNING on the bench.

This kit, although essentially simple, is NOT recommended as a beginner's model.

The model is designed as a rigid and torsionally strong sheet balsa tube, built as a hexagon for ease of construction and with a fuselage structure of formers and stringers. The fuselage is built in two halves, upper and lower parts separately over the plan to ensure a correct line-up, greatly simplifying construction.

Before commencing construction, cut out all the parts on the printed balsa sheets and identify these on the plan. Study the plan carefully and familiarize yourself with these and all other instructions, together with the complete sequence of detailed assembly... "

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.
