About this Plan

F-82 Twin Mustang. Free flight scale model twin, for rubber power.

From FAC newsletter no.184, nov/dec 1998.

Quote: "Lin, Found the F-82 plan. It's a fairly good flyer. It flew with 7 in plastic four-blade props, 'egg crated' ala Pres Bruning, and used the spinners from the Guillow Kits that also provided the canopies. These props did just fine. I wonder, swinging four 7 in props, do you have the equivalent of 28 in of prop on a 23-1/2 in model! HAH! The plastic props have a rather low pitch and they hauled it up pretty fast. Although I think the many draggin' blades after the power goes out wasn't an asset in the glide.

The model was built to come apart at the center section/fuselage joint in rough landings. The stab was held with a pin through the rudders into tubing in the stab and a spot of glue to hold the incidence. It isn't that big a model, and could also be built with the wing in one piece and survive some rough landings. It was fairly light for a twin, but you have to consider the offset weight (and momentum), of the rubber motor in the fuselage side that doesn't hit the ground. You'll also need a special rig or a friend to hold while you wind it.

Adjustments for left/left flight are: A little left rudder (on the left rudder), and down thrust in the right nacelle only. I used no right thrust. Wind the right motor first, or wait a minute after winding before launch to let the motors 'set'. I counted turns and put about 40-50 more turns on the left nacelle to control the left turn at launch.

Its covered with white Jap sprayed silver after assembly. I used Venus 'brilliant aluminum' powder mixed with thinner and then clear. Most of the trim is black Jap. I used the plastic exhausts from the kit. The night fighter versions were an easier to do black with red numbers, but you will have to find a picture of them without the big 'snoot' radar pod protruding from under the wing center section or build it on the model. Have fun, Rottensox"

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz15102) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_F-82_Twin_Mustang
    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 wonder where the rear rubber pegs go. Probably between formers "G" (upper side) and "N" (underside)?

* 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.
