User comments

My last RC model, circa 1981, was an OS Max 40 FSR powered MK Blue Angle Junior kit [main pic, 004-007]. This was covered with Sig Coverite (wings and tailplane) and lightweight glass cloth and K&B finishing resin on the fuselage and fin. The model was finished with K&B Super Poxy. The Sig Coverite was very nice to use and finish and has remained tight to this day having been variously stored in an eaves cupboard and the loft, far from ideal conditions. I moulded my own cockpit from a translucent blue celluloid rather than use the clear one in the kit and added some cockpit detail such as part of an ejector seat. I adopted an entirely different colour scheme for the underneath to aid visual orientation in flight. I incorporated flaps and spoilers to aid landing (a modification of those fitted to Hanno Prettner?s Curare design). I recall the model being fast (for me) and a bit twitchy in roll. Back then my radio transmitter had neither dual rate nor exponential functionality. After initial testing flights I didn?t get around to properly trimming the model but having retired and returned to the hobby I might just do so. I have to say the model is very elegant compared to many pattern aircraft of the time. Kind regards,

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
