About this Plan

Bucker Jungmeister - Scale rubber biplane model. Originally from January 1938 MAN, this is a later reprint by Golden Age Reproductions.

Quote: - "Build and fly the Bucker Jungmeister ...how you can build a flying exact scale model of one of the most famous stunt planes in the world ...the model described here is an exact flying scale model: that is, all the dimensions except the flying propeller are to scale."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 31/10/2017: added article, thanks to RFJ.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

Hello, its not a "Jungmeister". It is a "Jungmann" Redards

hmmm, but in January 1938 MAN, this is what they called it. This is the title they used, both in the article pages and on the plan itself. It isn't really an option now, to go back and make them do it again, differently. Maybe it's best to think about what we're doing here as recording aeromodelling history, and that includes the inevitable mistakes. Then again, maybe this is actually a model of the 1936 prototype Jungmeister, which had an inline engine rather than the later production radial versions.

Plan has correct name: the Jungmeister Bu 133 was only a single seat sport biplane, the Jungman was only a two seat trainer biplane. Independently of the radial or inline engine.

Steve, Early Jungmeisters were powered with a Hirth inline engine of 135 hp.
JimHales - 05/05/2017
The plan is a depiction of the prototype Bucker Jungmeister which had an inline engine, unlike the more familiar version which was put into production with the radial engine your correspondent was probably expecting. The single-seat configuration is a bit of a giveaway.

Nonono ... it's definitely a Jungmeister. The prototype and the two first production planes flew with a 140HP 6-cyl. in-line Hirth HM506 engine, later changed for a 160HP 7-cyl. radial Siemens Sh 14A in the rest of the production planes.

Pit is, of course, correct as always. The Jungmann was two-seater (although sometimes the front seat was faired over), while the Jungmeister was always a single seater. Thanks again

If anyone is interested, I've just added the Profile publication about the Bucker Bu 131 Jungmann to RCLibrary, here: Profile 222: Bucker Bu 131 Jungmann. The differences between the Jungmann (Young Man) and the Jungmeister (Young Champion) are discussed on page 255.

* 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.
