Sportliner - Control line sport model. Hi Steve - Here is Lloyd Hunt's .099 Sportliner From Flying Models magazine issue 08-52.
Quote: "One of the neatest little yo-yo's we have seen for small engines. The fuselage is sheet balsa, wing is built-up. The .099 Sportliner, by Lloyd Hunt.
The '.099 Sportliner' was designed with but one point in mind - to produce a sport model that could be taken out to fly and, at the end of the day, still be in one piece.
You can power it with a .099 Mc-Coy or small Arden - whichever type of engine you may have - with very little time and trouble involved in installation. We used the Cub .099. Before starting construction, look over the plans. You will notice that only the working parts or templates have been shown - the front and top views have been omitted, since they are not needed to construct the model.
Half-size plans for the .099 Sport-liner are shown on the facing page. If you don't know how to enlarge them to full-size, or don't want to bother with this, you may obtain full-size plans free of charge from Flying Models by using the coupon on Page 44.
Wing. Form the leading edge of the wing as shown. After the two strips have dried, pin the leading edge down on the plan on top of a flat sur-face. Notch, pin and cement the trail-ing in place. Cut the required wing ribs; the taper can easily be accom-plished by cutting the ribs as shown. Cement the ribs in place and add the wing tips, which are shaped from balsa blocks. Lastly, cement the spars to the wing.
The plan drawing shows a lead weight. The weight may be used either for the left or right panel, whichever way you will fly the ship. It should weigh one-half to three quarter ounces and will keep the lines taut while flying. After adding the complete wing, insert aluminum tubing in the tip for your lead out wires..."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
