About this Plan

Mam'selle - Vic Smeed designed 38in sports model for .5 to .8cc diesel power.

Quote: "Here is a sport model that gets away from the slab-sider groove, but which takes no longer to build and is as rugged as the most fumble-fisted could desire. Any motor of from .5 to .8cc is ideal, and if you take care in trimming, Mam'selle will handle 1cc quite comfortably. You can instal thye motor upright or inverted with very little modification, if you prefer, though the side mount shown offers ease of starting and accessibility of controls..."

Hi Steve, well done on your Outerzone labour of love - much appreciated throughout the modelling world. Attached photo of my scaled up 3 times Mamselle [more pics 003].

Hello Mary and Steve, I have downloaded Vic Smeed's Mamselle and am going to build her as electric with a CF2822 and rudder and elevator. My original conversion to rudder only with throttle, about 30 years ago, ended in failure when she went into a spiral dive from about 100ft and ended up splattered. I built another Mamselle straight away but with elevator, and she was a real beaut. Made the wings in two halves so I could go flying with her when out on my motor bike. Must have some photos somewhere. Anyway, I have printed the formers on separate sheets so that I can paste straight on to the depron. I have put the plan through Posterazor and it comes out on 16 sheets with a 1" grid overlayed. I will stick the wing plan together separately from the fuselage so each part lines up properly. If I try to make one big plan like the Aeromodeller originals, alignment is always a problem for me.

* 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.
