About this Plan
Sirocco. Rubber sport model.
Quote: "Hi Steve, Here's a nice one for you - I just added the Mercury Sirocco to my website, and have traced and drawn up the parts sheets from the kit. Quite a rare kit this, and I'd been looking for one for years... Plan and parts sheets attached, plus a photo of the model and box [model photo & morepics 003]. The model flies really well - trimming was incredibly easy. All the best,"

User commentsGood morning Steve (well at least for me) Beautiful looking large span model! Some part number confusion. Looking at the wing center (centre) section, the top view calls out parts W-3 (W-1 to T.E. brace) and W-4 (W-1 to front spar/dihedral brace). Then the small view calls out parts W-5. I think the W-5’s and the W-4’s in the other view are the same parts. Then on the parts sheet the gentleman who drew the parts labeled the W-3’s as W-5’s. Thank you so much for all your dedicated work in keeping this portion of our hobby alive.

Hi Steve, W5 and W4 are not the same thing. I drew up what W4 should be and scanned it - here it is [supplement file]... W4 looks like it might be 1/32” plywood.

Here is the structure of my Sirocco [more pics 004]. A nice rubber band model. I use a small electric motor with 2 small servos and 12 A esc, 2 cells 450 mA lipo.

Hi - the finished version of my Sirocco [more pics 005]. It flies very well.

I've just been looking at your website and the Mercury Sirocco. I've attached a couple of pictures for you of mine that I built in 2012 for electric and RC [more pics 006, 007]. Please feel free to use them on your site!

* 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.
