About this Plan

Miles Gemini. 36in span C/L scale twin engined model. From Model Aircraft, October 1955.

Quote: "A heavenly twin control-line model, powered by two 1.5 cc engines. Gemini, by F Buckland.

Anxious to try a twin, I looked through my magazines until I found a drawing of the Gemini. Here was what I wanted; small and trim looking, sturdy fixed undercarriage, ample wing area - the ideal twin for small engines. The model, when built, fulfilled all my expectations, being snappy enough for the expert yet easily handled for the younger modeller.

Fuselage. Cut out all formers; Mount A, B, C, D on 3/8 crutch pieces, fix hardwood bellcrank support and add side sheets; allow to set, then cement in remaining formers. Make tailplane using sandwich method, fixing tape hinges and 20 SWG wire connector between laminations. Cut slot in elevator and cement 1/16 ply horn. Sand to airfoil shape. Cut tailplane seating from 1/8 sheet and fit between formwrs F and G. Install controls and cement tailplane in position..."

Hello Outer Zone. Just finished my version of the Gemini [more pics 004]. Still C/L But powered by electric (I know it's not the right thing but my hands are not the best, arthritis etc. So had to be electric! Oh the shame.) Anyway hope you like?

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.
