About this Plan

Ringmaster S-1 - Control line profile stunt model from Sterling.

Quote: "Attached is a plan file for a Ringmaster S-1 which was kitted by Sterling Model Co in 1950. This is the profile one designed by Matt Kania. The original kit did not have an actual plan but only an assembly instruction sheet. The plan was made by tracing the parts from a kit and forming them into a CAD file and subsequently converted into PDF file. The file will print a full sized plan if printed at 100%. This is in 'public domain' so anyone can copy and use the file." This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

I changed the landing gear on this S-1 to wing mount and now I can make a decent landing [more pics 005-007].

* 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.
