About this Plan

Mini Master. Simple rubber sport model.

Quote: "Ray Malmstrom's Model'n Tip. A Sticky Problem.

SOME modern kits include plastic parts (scale accessories, cowlings, etc). Balsa cement is often suggested for cementing plastic to balsa wood. Balsa cement, however, is not always the best adhesive for this particular job, 'To be much surer of a plastic to balsa joint use Evo-Stik or Araldite. Evo-Scik needs pressure for adhesion, and Araldite joined parts need pinning as it takes quite a long time to harden, but you will produce a much more permanent joint. Full directions for use are included with these adhesives.

With Mini Master featured here, however, balsa cement will be just the job. Mini Master is a duration-type model with a difference. It features a radial engine, giving it that 'real plane' look. Into the bargain it flies like a homesick angel! All you need is on the plan. Build and balance carefully. Only a very small amount of nose or tail weight should be needed.

Just a word about the props. A 5 in commercial plastic prop will fly your Mini Master fine - but if you want to get into the big-time take a night off and carve and sandpaper a 5-1/2 in balsa prop (details on plan), and fit a simple free-wheel. Durations will really go up. On test on a damp evening my own Mini Master was clocking 45 sees. Maybe you can top the minute with this pocket-size 16-1/2 in, span full-of-go midget. Drop me a card c/o 'Model Aircraft' if you do. Have a ball and join the Mini Master Minute Men! Looking forward to hearing from you. RM. "

Quote: "The Mini-Master is another Ray Malmström design published in Model Aircraft for the 'Wings Club for Boys' a very clever plans drawing and as with all Malmström designs, easy to build and excellent performer."

* 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.
