Currently we have a number of these models being built in Brisbane [main pic, 003-008]. This is where it started. Van Richard - Smith sent the following information about his Taipan 1.5cc powered Hell Cat he flew recently for inclusion in the Control Line Aeromodellers of Brisbane Inc newsletter. Many were very impressed not only with the cute model but the sound and smell of that Taipan diesel. It was kind of intoxicating. We have decided make this our 'theme' model for this Xmas fly day party. This is my Taipan 1.5cc "Bubble Pack" diesel from 1959. I had joined the Air Training Corps at high school in 1959. They had an aero modelling program at RAAF headquarters one night a week and provided building materials FREE. I built a Hearns Hobby Hellcat there. My father gave me the engine for my birthday (from Whatmore's sport store in Brisbane ) and so began a lifetime of control line modelling. I taught my self to fly at the local park with this model. I have had a bad attack of nostalgia this year and decided to build a new Hellcat powered by the original motor - as you can see the head has been re-anodized in the not so recent past by the late Ron Chernich. It still runs like a new one in spite of being used in many aircraft. I have no idea how many hours it has done or how many fingers it has hit. The Hellcat is so easy to fly on 35 feet of line. On its first flight, I was amazed that it would fly around for 6 laps without me giving any control - truly a great trainer. Whee! I had Fun Fun Fun. Malcolm Campbell, Ian Heath and John Lewis have also built one with more being constructed currently by other members. Cheers,

* 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.
