About this Plan

Me-109 Stunt. Control line stunt model, for Fox .35 power.

Quote: "For .29's and .35's this full stunt machine should please the pattern fliers who want their models to look like real crates but who don't want to tackle real scale jobs. Me-109 Stunt, by Frank B Baker.

This is a contest stunt plane which has had a long development. The present model is the fifth in a series and has a strong Messerschmitt motif. The original model really was scale, with an enlarged elevator, and stunted very well. In service I was stationed in Houston, Texas where they flew a very different type of plane than we did in Minnesota. While there, I built a 'Texas style' ME-109, embodying what I had learned from the stunt men in that state. This version, which weighed 48 ounces, stunted much smoother and slower than the original. Back in Minnesota it did not fly as well as in Texas, due in part to the 2000 feet difference in altitude. A new smaller and lighter plane was built which is the present version. The present plane combines the appearance of the Me109 with the results of five years of design development. This model has drawn much attention at local meets through the upper midwest.

The construction is simple and light. I always built my tanks into the airplane so be sure to test the tank for leaks. Once in the plane, it is too late. Fill the tank with white gas and soak the tank in gas for a few hours to dissolve any rosin which might be filling small holes.

The body construction is standard. The wheel-cover plates are built to stay on. The plate is cut out of shim stock fitted around the 1/8 in landing gear wire. The straps are silver soldered to the shim stock and the wire. Fill in the plate with 3/16 in balsa and curve to an airfoil shape, then cover with silk. The elevator is built of 3/16 sheet; due to its light weight it must be supported by struts. The 1/4 in diameter aluminum tubing is run through sheet-metal rollers until 3/16 in thick, flattened at the ends, then bolted to the body and elevator. The struts are scale and functional..."

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.
