Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 20/11/2020: Added kit instructions, thanks to TR.
Quote: "The intent of the following instructions is not to be a detailed step by step construction article for beginners. It is intended as a general guideline to be followed in providing a logical sequence for assembling the major components. It is expected that the builder has had prior experience in constructing models in this type category and in particular scratch building from plans.
The materials indicated are suggested and may be substituted at the builders discretion (ie foam core board in non-stress bearing parts such as the outer wing panel ribs). The builder is left as to their favorite in choice of hardware, engine mounting technique, radio installation, etc as they will vary with product and personal preference.
INNER WING PANEL
1) Pin two 1/2 x 1/4 hardwood spars to the plan layout.
2) Glue 1/8 plywood wino ribs W-1 thru W-6 to the spars.
3) Glue two 1/2 x 1/4 hardwood spars to the ribs at the top.
4) Add 1/4 sq hardwood leading edge.
5) Add 1,4 sq hardwood trailing edge spar.
6) Add 1/4 sq balsa front edge spar.
7) Remove wing panel from the plans and flip over.
8) Add 1/4 sq hardwood trailing edge spar to the bottom of the panel.
9) Add 1/4 sq balsa front edge spar to the bottom of the panel... "

ScaleType: This (oz6285) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-3
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.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

I am kind of new to building scratch build planes. I had a look at your Mig3 1/5 scale and just love it and can't wait to get started. Do you perhaps have the building manual for this plan? If not, can you advise me where I can get one. Hope you will be able to assist me

It's always good to hear of someone new starting to scratch-build :) We'd love to help if we can. Does anyone out there have the building manual for this model?

I came across a discussion on RC UNIVERSE where the Roamin Research Mig-3 was discussed. After reading the discussion I'm a bit concerned and would like to know if the plane would fly should I build it according to the plans. I don't want to spend all that money on materials and in the end it was not worth it, because it truly is a beautiful plane. Hope you'll be able to assist and thank you again for the plans.

Can anyone reassure Chris that his Mig-3 will fly if he builds it from these plans? Does anyone have direct experience?

I have scanned the manual, will send to OZ so it can be added to the listing.

* 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.
