Rearwin Speedster M6000 (oz10750)
About this Plan
Rearwin Speedster M6000. Sport scale model for radio control. Wingspan 60 in, wing area 590 sq in, for .35 - .40 engines.
Planfile includes detailed build instructions.
Quote: "Rearwin Speedster Assembly Instructions. Please read through the building instructions before starting. Unless otherwise noted, any adhesive such as instant glue (cyanoacrylate) 5 or 30 minutes epoxy or aliphatic resin may be used. As a general rule, remove all excess glue that squeezes out of the glue joints, especially in places were another piece is to fit square to the glue joint.
1. Before starting to build, some preparation work must be completed. Refer to the plans and mark and drill the holes in the firewall for your engine mount. The plans shows a Tatone 4-cycle mount which is not included in the kit. If you are using a 2-cycle engine Tatone has a 'flat' muffler which will fit inside the cowl. Drill the holes for the fuel line, vent line and throttle linkage. If you are going to use a 4-cycle engine, mark the inside of both fuselage sides with the location of the firewall as shown on the plans, if using a 2-cycle engine, move the firewall forward until the firewall is even with the forward end of the sides.
2. Working on the inside of the fuselage sides, mark the location of all of the formers, notice that former B is on an angle that matches the front window post. Also mark the location of the cabin sides. Cut the pushrod exits for the rudder and elevator using the plans as a guide.
3. Relieve the center of the 1/4 ply rea wing bolt hold-down plate for aileron torque rod clearance as shown on the fuselage top view.
4. Add the tri-stock on the inside of each side, that runs from the rear of former E to the rear of the side. Relieve the tri-stock at the tail ( in top view) as necessary so the fuselage sides will mate properly at the rear.
5. With the fuselage side laying flat on your work bench, inside up, epoxy the firewall, formers B,C and 1/4 ply landing gear plate to the side. Be sure you have placed the firewall in the proper location for your engine, either 2-cycle or 4-cycle. Also check the 'angle' of former B is correct. All parts should the 90 degree from the side.
6. Epoxy the other side to this assembly while still on the building board. Check that the top of both sides line up, this will assure a square fuselage.
7. Epoxy the rear of the side together.
8. Remove the fuselage assembly from the building board. Place the assembly over the plans top view, bottom down against your building board.
9. With the fuselage assembly over the plans and pinned down from the firewall to bulkhead 2 place formers D,E and F in place, do not glue. Place the 1/4 x 3/8 top center stringer in the formers notches. Adjust formers D and E so the top stringer is a straight line from former C and F. Center formers D,E and F over the plans and glue the bulkheads to the sides and glue the top stringer to formers C through F.
10. Glue the two 1/4 x 3/8 top side stringer in place.
11. Remove the fuselage assembly from the building board. Turn the fuselage over and glue the 1/16 cross grain bottom sheet in place. The bottom sheet starts at the rear of the landing gear plate and goes to the rear of the fuselage sides.
12. Draw a line on the outside of both side, 1/8 in behind bulkhead 2. Cut the 3/8 side filler to this angle and glue in place on both sides..."

ScaleType: This (oz10750) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rearwin_Speedster
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
