About this Plan

Rights to this design are now with http://www.belairkits.com/ who sell a laser cut parts set complete with plan and cowl, and have agreed to leave this pdf plan on Outerzone as a free download. Bucker Jungmeister - Radio control scale model. Quarter scale model for .60 power.

Quote: - "Forget speed. You won't need it; indeed at half throttle on the 16in prop, the Jungmeister will not stop in a vertical climb. It just hangs on that big fan and keeps going up, just as slow and pretty as can be..." Hi Steve - Here is Dave Platt's Bucker Jungmeister from Radio Control Modeler magazine issue 09-78.

Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 6/10/15: Added Sheet 3, thanks to StefanF. Not the plan as such, but contains very useful additional 3D sketches that illustrate how the model goes together.

Supplementary files

Article pages, text and pics. Also Sheet 3.


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

Hi Steve and Mary, here is my Bucker built in 1981, with a plan of RCM [more pics 003, 004]. My daughter looks with big eyes to the plane. SVENSON makes the same KIT in 1979, but the Bucker with the RCM plan 1978 flies better! Building without construction kit is much more fun. Mine is painted by hand, in the sports colors. Regards,

Hi again Steve & Mary, attached some images of my "plan built" Bucker Jungmeister [more pics 005-012]. Built of the Bucker Jungmeister (#5841), by Dave Platt from RCMplans (ref:738) September 1978 (65in span), by a friend of mine (Charl Bloem) in 2003. I eventually did the maiden flight on 2 April 2017. Images are from the maiden flight. Love the model - it will definitely become one of my favorites. Mine is powered by a .90 Super Tigre swinging a 16x4 Master Airscrew Prop and AUW is under 4kg.

* 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.
