User comments

Hi Steve, I have included some pictures of my KK Rover, built as per plan [more pics 003-005]. This model claims to be designed for the Mills 1.3 in particular, but requires the needle valve extension to protrude through the cabin windscreen. As well as being way over-powered the engine is tricky to fit and difficult to fill and choke when starting. A Mills.75 would be a much more suitable power-plant for a model of this size, or perhaps the good old ED Bee. The other modification worth making, would be to change the wing joiners to 3/16 dowels in aluminium or rolled paper tubes. Alternatively a one-piece wing would suffice. Having said that it's a great flyer and capable of some spectacular near vertical spiral climbs whilst remaining very stable, if the power is not throttled-back.

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.
