About this Plan

Twin Mustang F-82. Control line scale twin model, from Air Trails. The original used 2 x glow plug O&R 23's for power.

Quote: "Been seeking a good twin engine model? Have you wanted to try your hand with a fighter? Well, gather up the glue and sticks brother - here's a project to keep you busy for a while. Difficult? Not too much. Slab sided body, wing a la Fireball.

Model is scaled 3/4in to the foot directly from factory 3-view drawings. All up weight of the original model was 44oz giving a wing loading of 18.5oz/100 sq in.

Power was two glow-plugged O&R 23's swinging 9x6 TopFlite props. O&R 29's or K&B 29's or 32's can be used with minor modfications on the nose section. The original ship had a slightly larger tank on the left engine and the right engine was started first to insure its stopping first. Excellent control resulted with only the left engine running.

The long nose moment arm makes for fairly nose-heavy trim if larger engines are installed. So it may be necessary to add weight to the tail. Balance as shown... "

Update 11/10/2016: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy also now at correct scale, thanks to JJ.

Update 16/09/2020: Added complete article, thanks to theshadow.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.

* 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.
