Quote: "DAS BIPE STIK: Congratulations on your purchase of Das Bipe Stik. We at Midwest Products hope you enjoy building and flying Das Bipe Stik as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you.
Study the plans and illustrations before starting to build this model. For the more experienced modeler, there should be no problems at all, as the model has been designed for fast building.
All construction is straight forward and you will find Das Bipe Stik is quite a sturdy aircraft. Read the instructions and make sure the parts that are being cemented in place are the correct ones. Well, it's time to go to work on Das Bipe Stik.
1. Start by tacking wax paper overthe top wing portion of the plans. Cement and pin in place the 1/4 sq spruce bottom spar. Cut a 45 degree angle on the 1/16 x 2 in trailing edge sheet and pin in place over the plan. Do the same to the 5/8 Balsa trailing edge stock and cement in place to the rear part of the 1/16 balsa trailing edge sheets. This is step No.1 and it should look like it when it has been done.
2. Carefully remove the ribs from the die cut sheets and cementthem in place to the main spar only. Afterthese have dried, remove pins from main spar and pivot the ribs back onto the trailing edge and cement the ribs in place to the trailing edge sheeting. From the 1/8 x 3/4 balsa furnished in the kit, cement as shown to the rear center of the top wing. This completes step #2.
3. Cement the 1/4 Sq Balsa leading edge in place. The leading edge is also cemented at the center. Cut 1/16 Balsa top trailing edge at 45 degrees as was done on the bottom sheet and cement in place as shown. Cement the top spars in place into the notches pro-vided. Remove the wing from the building board and cement the bottom spars in place. Note at this time that all materials such as leading edges, spars, leading and trailing edge sheets butt at the center line of the wing. The only exception is the rear of the top wing. Glue the 1/8 x 1/4 in balsa caps to the wing trailing edge.The only material that does not butt at the center line is the center wing planking as can be seen on step No.4. This is true with the bottom wing also.
4. Cement the 1/8 balsa die cut gussets in place as shcwn on illustration on the bottom of the top wing. Cement the 7/16 x 3/4 x 5-7/8 maple blocks in place as shown. These blocks will extend out of the wing ribs. and 1/16 balsa sheet will be cemented in between these blocks. Cement the four 3/8 balsa triangles to these blocks. These can also be seen on the top wing plan.
5. To cement the 1/16 balsa leading edge sheets in place the wood will have to be a little wet on just one side. The wood will start to take a curve and will help in cementing the leading edge together. Pins will help hold the wood in place here. Plank the center section with 1/16 balsa top and bottom. Locate and cut slots in the cabane blocks. Cement wing tips in place and the wing can be sanded and made ready for finishing..."

User commentsPablo, thank you very much for submitting the plan for the Stik biplane, and thank you Mary for publishing it. I have built six different sizes of Stiks, ranging from 48" up to 96", including a Stik canard. I have been looking to complete my collection of Stiks by building the Stik biplane. No excuses now.

Good day, attached you can find the Part List and instructions (single sheet) for the Midwest Das Bipe Stik. Beautiful model, little known. Almost no info on the web. I plan to scale it up to a 20cc twin. I found the files on

* 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.
