About this Plan

Rivets. Scale pylon racer model for radio control. Quarter midget racer.

Quote: "In the June issue RCM presented the new Quarter Midget racing class and the proposed rules by Chuck Cunningham. This month we are presenting the Rivets Quarter Midget designed around these new rules. We chose the Rivets because of its unusual design and appearance. In addition, the Rivets has been very successful in the racing circuit in the last few years with Joe Foster and his Rivets walking away with a truckload of hardware in the 450 class.

Several advantages of the Quarter Midget are apparent from its small size: it can be built rather easily and quickly and can be transported without taking the wings off the air-plane every time you want to move it. In fact, it will almost fit in the glove compartment of your car! The Quarter Midgets can be flown from a much smaller field and, in fact, if there is a lack of a good smooth runway, it may be hand launched and then landed in the grass at the end of the race.

Start construction with the wing, using 16 x 12 x 36 in sheet for the bottom panel. Lay out the two bottom wing panels using the outline from the plans. The wings are built up directly on the bottom panels, so be sure to pin them down securely on a flat surface. Cut out the landing gear block and epoxy three 4-40 blind nuts in each..."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

  • NotFound | help

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
