About this Plan

Mercury Magna - Free flight sport model. Plan says: re-traced by Rolie Lelliot 26-8-1988.

Quote: "Hi Steve. Attached a copy of the Mercury Magna which is on the most wanted list by Danny M... Rgds,"

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: - "The Magna is a free-flight cabin monoplane of simple construction and stable flying characteristics making it most suitable as an introductory model to power flying. As long as you have built one or two gliders or rubber jobs of orthodox construction, the building and flying of the Magna will present no difficulties. The Magna is designed for small diesels of 0.5 to 0.75cc capacity. Details of recommended prop sizes for various motors are given on the plan and should be adhered to. Most of the building instructions are on the plan and the following building sequence will help to reduce building time to a minimum..."

Update 25/05/2017: Replaced this plan with a much clearer copy, thanks to NicholasTucker who sent in new scans along with complete printwood scans, kit instructions, also two box art pics. Nice work :)

Thank you very much Steve & Ron. This is a sentimental favourite and I shall post a photo when it's built. Regards from the land of the kangaroo,

* 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.
