About this Plan

Magnum. Flight Plan 66. Rubber sport model.

Quote: "Flight plan '66 by Ray Malmstrom. Part 1: The Magnum. A semi-scale rubber powered shoulder wing monoplane.

Flight plan 66 has been devised to really help you successfully to build and fly a model aircraft. This month we present the plan, building instructions and sketches for THE MAGNUM - an attractive easy to build semi-scale model. Next month we shall describe in detail with photos and sketches the trimming and flying of this perky full-of-go model.

If you are an absolute beginner to the thrilling hobby of aeromodelling then Flight Plan 66 is for you. Even if you are an aeromodeller already, we feet sure that you will find some useful tips in these articles - and anyway, you'll want to build and fly MAGNUM. So if you feel ready, let's roll out on to the runway and take off for a lot of building and flying fun.

Building the fuselage. Before starting, check the materials list and have a flat board, pencil, tracing paper (or greaseproof) a couple of new single edge razor blades, a steel rule, some modelling pins, fine sandpaper and a couple of soft brushes ready to hand.

Trace the fuselage nose pieces from the plan, turn the tracing over and transfer it to sheet medium grade balsa. Use medium grade balsa (often marked by, having the ends of the sheet and strip coloured green) for the entire structure of MAGNUM.

Put two pieces of sheet togcther, hold at the corners with a spot of cement, and cut out two nose pieces togeher - you get two identical shapes this way..."

* 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.
