Mono Missile - Control line speed model.
This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.
Quote: "A glance at the AMA National Records will show that single wire flying is here to stay. If you want to get some of those first place trophies at local meets, this model could be just what you are looking for. As its name implies, the ship utilizes the Stanzel Mono-Line Speed Master control unit, one of the great advances in speed flying. The 'Missile' has clocked 138.40 mph to date and in windy weather too. So, if you want to set some speed records you had better get on the Mono-line band wagon now!
Engine Mounting: Start construction by carefully cutting down a Hell Razor A speed pan to the size shown on the plan. Mount your Torp .19 with 1-1/2 degrees left thrust. Next, cut down a 2-1/2in Froom needlenose spinner to 1-1/4in. Mount the spinner and shape the front of the speed pan until the lines of the spinner and the pan flow smoothly as shown in the side view. The front hold-down bracket is made from 1/32in dural sheet and bolted to the backplate. Now, plug up all the engine openings and file the side fins and exhaust port as shown..."

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