About this Plan

AT-6 Texan. Radio control scale model. Wingspan 72-9/16, wing area 775 sq in, for FS 120 engine. Scale is 1/7.

Note this kit was manufactured by Marutaka in Japan to be sold by Circus Hobbies in the US.

Note this planfile has been derived from the original scan posted on the Facebook Royal Marutaka group (see datafile) thanks to Jesse Bartsch. This version here has had a quick cleanup, also increased contrast, thanks to Pilgrim.

Note the instructions file includes a parts ID drawing that could be used to draw up full size parts.

Quote: "Instructions: Start assembly after referring the die cut balsa and plywood parts to the number on the plans.

Before starting building: For better finish and flight performance, take time in reading building instruction and referring to the plans, and assemble in good order and correctly and carefully.

Cut off each part with cutter or razor blade avoiding damage, particularly on the jointing cut out and slot. If necessary trim the parts for easier fitting. When cementing use thread, rubber band, pins, clothes clips etc, until cement sets.

For forming and working, cutter, balsa plane and/or file are to be used. Wood tip wrapped with sand paper can slso be used as a file.

*(W) = Wood Glue (or Instant. Adhesive) *(E) Epoxy Glue

1. The wing center section and the tapered section are built in three pieces. First build (W) the center section with W, ribs W2 through W4, W6 and W7. At this time, install (W) servo bed W41. Glue (W) W12 to W13 and make the spar before-hand, build (W) the tapered section from the spar, ribs W14 through W23, W24, W25 and W26.

2. Assemble (W) the fuselage sides with F1, F2, F3, F5 and F26. Laminate (Ii) four F6s beforehand and glue (W) F9 to F10 also.

3. Assemble (W) the wheel well with W9, W10 and W11.

4. Assemble the front fuselage by gluing (E) the bulkheads 86 through F10, also F14 and F16 to the fuselage sides made in step (2). Then glue (W) F36. At this time, if the frame is twisted, repair by installing; F36 correcctly

5. Install (F) the wheel well made in step (3) to the wing center section may in step (1).

    ScaleType: This (oz14043) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_T-6_Texan
    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.

I have to admit the date on this one here 1980 is highly approximate. Does anyone know the exact date this was released? Thanks.

According to OS company prod. line history O.S. FS 120 engine started production in 1989, so probably around 90's

Got it, thanks. Have set this to 1989, for now.

Don’t know how accurate the lines are on this AT-6, but the scale is quoted at 1/7th, so the shape will perhaps be a reasonable match with the semi-scale Top Flite AT-6 kit, if someone wants/needs to mix and match canopy bits or whatever.

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.
