Quote: "Aeroflyte Gemini Mk II. Kit no 246.

Gemini Mk an ideal aileron sports model suitable for the popular 40-50 four stroke engines for quiet relaxed flying, or for high performance the 35-40 size two stroke engines. Gemini Mk II has been designed for easy assembly with the kit containing rapid assembly foam core wings, die cut balsa and ply parts, full size detailed step by step plans showing radio installation.

General Building Notes: Before you begin building it is important to look at the plan carefully, reading and understanding the instructions before starting assembly. A good flat building board will enable you to build quickly and squarely. As needed remove each piece from its balsawood sheet with the help of a sharp pointed hobby knife.

Fuselage Assembly: Stage 1: Press out die cut square in F1 and die cut circle in F1 & F2. Use a hobby knife to cut out the slots die cut into F1, F2 & F3.

To epoxy assembly F1, F2 & F3 together, Lay F1 flat down with the long slot on the right hand side. Place F2 on top of F1 and F3 on top of F2. Make sure the slots in F1, F2 & F3 line up.

Epoxy assembly F4 & F5 together. (Make sure the pin marks in F4 & F5 line up.) Temporarily glue the drilling template to the front of F1/F2/F3 assembly and drill as shown. Drill two 6 mm holes in assembly F4/F5 where pin marked.

Cut out the nyrod slots in each fuselage side 7. Lay one fuselage side flat down, working forward from the line shown on the plan side view, glue the 1.5 mm doublers in position. Clamp or weight until dry. Then trim doublers to finish flush and square to fuselage sides.

Cut and glue the 3 x 6 mm balsa strips to the fuselage side from a point behind F6 to the rear of the fuselage. Repeat for the opposite fuselage side, making sure you have a complete left and right fuselage side, with both doublers on the insides.

Place the two fuselage sides on edge and upside down over the fuselage top plan view and epoxy ply formers F1/F2/F3 and F4/F5 and balsa parts 8 and 9 into place. Use masking tape to hold assembly until dry..."

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.
