About this Plan

Scrambola II. Rubber sport model.

Quote: "Presenting Scrambola II, by George Ivey Jr.

Scrambola I, the original zippy sky traveler of that name, proved to be such a good thing that designer George Ivey Jr decided to 'stick with it'! So here's Scrambola II - and you'll have to be ready to run when this job takes off, for, as he tells us, she wasn't named Serambola for nothin! Yep, this one is certainly the ace - at least until Scrambola III comes along.

SCRAMBOLA II was designed with two characteristics in mind - stability and simplicity of construction. The model that resulted, quickly proved that both qualities had been achieved. From its first powered take-off, Scrambola II climbed at an usually steep angle without a stall and spin - and subsequent flights showed that this stability was inherent. The ship will also glide well; in fact, it will soar when weather conditions are right.

CONSTRUCTION: Join Plate 1 and 2 together to form the full size layout. Now cover the drawing with wax paper to protect it from the glue. Carefully cut and sand the longerans and spacers to correct size, as shown on the drawing. Assemble each side on the drawing, holding the pieces in place with pins. When both sides are completely dry, attach them together and install nose block. The easiest way to make this is as follows: Cement two 15/8 x 25/8 x 7/8 in soft balsa blocks together, carve to correct outside shape, split apart, carve out the inside, and cement together again. Be sure to select medium soft balsa.

Bend the landing gear to shape from 1/32 music wire, and make the wheels of medium balsa 1/8 x 2 in. Equip wheels with paper bushings.

The tail surfaces are of all-balsa construction. Cut the outlines and ribs from 1/16 sheet and the spars from 1/16 sq. The stabilizer spars are continuous, and both stabilizer and rudder are attached to fuselage before covering.

The motor stick is simple and strong. Cut and sand the parts (two sides, cap strips, end plugs, and bulkheads) from medium balsa and coat with dope or banana liquid before assembling. After thrust bearings and rear hook have been attached, cover entire stick with Jap tissue and give two coats of dope.

For the wing, scale up the hall size plan of Plate 3 and assemble the wing on the drawing in somewhat the same manner as the fuselage. The top pattern is shown full size, and the outline is cut from 1/16 sheet..."

* 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.
