I would like to build the Mercury Martin and have downloaded the plan, but find that the formers are not included as there appears to be no part 2. Perhaps I have simply failed to find the necessary documentation?

Hi Ian. The printwood formers are in the supplementary file. You'll find it just below the main plan file download button.

I am an Ulsterman living in Canada. I last built Mercury kits when I was a schoolboy and have taken up the hobby once again [more pics 004]. Hope to go flying in the next couple of days.

Hi, I am Deepak from India. Wanted to rebuild Mercury Martin and came across your website. Enclosed are a few images from my first attempts into getting into Aeromodelling and Mercury Martin being my 2nd model that I built [pics 005-008]. Not a very good result. But none the less, had a wonderful time building this and want to build more of such kits. Are such kits still available?
Thanks & Warm Regards

* 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.
