Bucker Jungmeister (oz1728)
About this Plan
Bucker Jungmeister. Free flight scale model biplane for .5 to .8cc power. November 1961 Aeromodeller.
Quote: "An easy to build 26-3/4 inch free flight model for .5 to .8 cc power.
One look at the trim lines of the little Jungmeister brands it as a machine just asking to be modelled, and what a corker for scale it is. Our prototype, designed by W Lister was flight proven by Bill Newman who added several practical features to aid and simplify construction.
DESIGNED IN 1935 as an advanced aerobatic trainer, the Bucker Jungmeister is considered among the world's top aerobatic pilots to be one of the finest aerobatic mounts available. One look at the trim lines of the little Jungmeister, brands it as a machine just asking to be modelled, and what a corker for scale it is. Our prototype, designed by W. Lister was flight proven by Bill Newman who added several practical features to aid and simplify construction.
Start construction by cutting out the basic fuselage sides. Set these out upside down over the plan and fit the cross pieces. Cement in position the formers from the cabin forward and then from the cabin back to the stern post. Secure the bearers and 1/16 in. ply C4's. Shape the cabane struts and bind to the bearers. At this point the pendulum should be fitted and cabin detail added if required. Stringer the fuselage and plank as shown to the rear of the cockpit.
Cut two C3's from 1/4 in. sheet and cement to engine bearers. Carve the nose block, hollow out to suit motor and bearers and part into two pieces across the thrust line of the cowl. Cement the lower half to the bearers with C1, then add C2 followed by C5, the cowl underside. Spot cement the top of the noseblock in place and then carve the top cowl block to shape, removing both (now as one) and hollow out. Wrap round the 1 mm ply cowl sides cementing to C1, C2, C3 and C5, and the rear cowl fairing round the lower part of the fuselage.
Build the wing centre sections top and bottom, laying down leading and trailing edge and spars and adding ribs. When set, remove from the plan and bind in the metal tubes. Bind the upper C/S to the cabane..."

* 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.
