About this Plan

Nobler Junior. Control line stunt model kitted by Top Flite. Wingspan 40in; area 276 sqin; for .15 to .25 sized engines.

Quote: "A miniature version of the famous 'Nobler' with absolutely nothing lost in performance."

Update 09/12/2013: Replaced this plan with a clearer scan, thanks to JJ.

Update 12/06/2020: Added scan of printwood parts, thanks to MikeHalbrook. Part 1 shows complete sheets. Part 2 shows the parts separated from the sheets.

Update 6/9/2023: Added scan of hand-traced parts, thanks to Pit.

Quote: "20 years ago I traced the parts before building. Note: I had widened the first formers (and the others in cosequence) to accomodate the Supertigre G-20 engine (2,5cc or 15 cu.in.) anyone can do the same for his engine.

Hi Mary - An old well used model with a Fox .15 [more pics 003, 004]. Our club contest stunt flier wanted to fly it as he had flown both the full size Nobler from the kit and the Chinese ARF. After doing the pattern, he said "pretty good".

When I was 13 years old I was in a model club called the "Frisco Flying Fools" and we went to W.A.M. control line contests.
After I could fly inverted my Dad gave me a Jr Nobler and a Fox 15. Finally a real flapping stunter, finished in blue and white dope. I flew that plane for 2 years and repaired it more times I can remember.

Here are some pictures of my just completed Jr Nobler [main pic, 007-009]. The engine is a Cox Sportsman .15, one of the engines called out on the plans. The model is capable of mounting the later Cox Medallion .15 as well. The finish is Monocote. Best Regards,

Back in my teenage years, I had one of these airplanes and loved it. Now that I'm at retirement age, I'm getting back in to it and looking for a kit or drawing to make another one. It was a fun airplane to fly.

* 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.
