About this Plan

Frosty Punkin. Control line stunt model for .19 to .35 power.

Quote "Stunt fans: Here's a model that will get you plenty of flying hours. It's built tough for all types of weather. Frosty Punkin, by Roscoe I Mullican.

Frosty Punkin is a name decided upon years back and due to a friend-ship made between a celebrated modeller and myself. As a finale to an evening filled with modelling gab, cussions on airfoils, we parted. As the CM boarded his bus and sailed majestically on his way his parting words, belittling my knowledge of airfoils, hung in the air. Yup. We decided to put the 'tag' on our next model plane.

The way this 'little ole' airplane flies around, there will never be any frost accumulating on it so we made up the emblem for effect. Frosty, the emblem, even has a slight facial resemblance to the celebrated modeller mentioned (hollow head and all).

All kidding aside, the building of this model airplane is not difficult and stand-ard widths and lengths of materials are used to make things easier. The model performs with the best and is easier than most to fly.

WING: Cut the wing ribs and tips from 3/32 and 1/8 sheet balsa. Alignment of the ribs is easily obtained by first notching the trailing edge and then putting the leading and trailing edge together and marking each notch location on the leading edge. The bottom spar is pinned to the plan and shimmed 1/16" to allow the symmetrical ribs to rest on the plan..."

This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.

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.
