About this Plan

TEAM Hi-Max. Peanut scale rubber model (to MIAMA rules, with 9 inch fuselage).

Quote: "A little model of what is in effect little more than a big model - one of a series of simple all-wood homebuilts kitted by Tennessee Engineering and Manufacturing. TEAM Hi-Max, by George Benson.

The Hi-Max homebuilt aircraft developed by TEAM of Tennessee lends itself beautifully to Peanut scale, having simple lines, a wide range of scale color schemes and detailing, various types of engines and exhausts, and last but not least, lots of wing area. This model follows MIAMA club rules, which permit an overall length from the rear of the propeller of 9 inches; in this case resulting in a wingspan of 14-3/4 inches.

The full-size Hi-Max which I modeled was built by Robert Macy of Cherryvale, Kansas. The attractive blue and white color scheme smartens up a simple rectangular design.

Construction: Standard stick-and-tissue construction is followed, so rather than give a detailed description I will elaborate only where variations from the norm are encountered.

Build the wing in one 14-3/4 inch long structure, flat on the plan with the center two ribs tilted slightly to conform to the dihedral added later. The leading edge is omitted between the two center ribs. The three B pieces of 1/32 balsa are put in later when the dihedral is added.

At C, insert shaped 1/32 balsa to stiffen the ribs where the soft wire is glued to attach the wing struts. The soft, thin copper wire is made into an eye and the two tails are glued to the ribs at two points A on each panel.

When building the fuselage, note that a second piece of 1/20 square balsa is glued in-side the uprights at each end of the side window. They extend from the bottom longeron to the top horizontal 1/20 square that supports the wing. Glue thin, light, sanded 1/32 sheet on the fuselage top in front of the side window and also cover the panel behind the side window uprights..."

    ScaleType: This (oz13299) 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
    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.
