About this Plan

Mig 15. Control line scale model for dyna-jet power.

Quote: "A thrill to watch but a devil to build is a pulse-jet scale job. But so many readers inquire about internal jet installations that MAN here presents plans of a proved ship, by Howard R Yonkers.

The Russian MIG 15 jet fighter of Korean war fame is probably the best known of all the foreign planes in the world today. Our Dynajet model is equally impressive. Spanning four feet, it is no small ship and its 60-70 mph speed is not to be sneezed at, for its size and weight.

The MIG is not a model that is recommended for the beginner and the more experienced will find it no small task. A little jet experience will be of great help as jet models perform entirely different than prop jobs. Use care in selecting wood for the model, for you must keep the weight down. Do not exceed 8 pounds, if possible, otherwise it is hard to handle. But do not sacrifice strength for a saving of weight.

Construction: Have the heat deflector tube constucted of light aluminum at a sheet metal shop. This is bothersome, true, but you would-be scale jet fans are interested in a plane that will not catch fire, as so many scale jobs (internal engines) do after launching.

Bulkheads are slipped in place over the heat tube, after wrapping asbestos strip on the tube at the bulkhead positions. If the tube and bulkheads are modeled to correct size, they will fit snugly at the correct position.

The keel is then slipped in place and remaining bulk-heads positioned. When everything has been alined, dis-assemble, and glue up, using a non inflammable glue such as Wilhold Elmer's, etc.

Erect fin and stabilizer framework on the fuselage, then install belkrank mount in wing and auxiliary bellcrank in fin. Use metal hinges for the elevator. Install pusbrods - care should be taken to see that both elevators have same setting. Build the basic wing framework into the fuselage, being careful of alignment.

Plank fuselage, with 1/8 x 1/4 from the 2 to the 4 o'clock positions, and from the 8 to the 10 o'clock positions, looking at the fuselage head on. Cut away lower keel between No. 1 bulkhead and No. 2 bulkhead and install nose gear. All intake duct walls should be installed now with exception of pilot's compartment. It is important not to forget the hatch runners at this point. The entire hatch outline should be built, but do not cut top keel yet. Finish planking fuselage, installing glass wool around tube as you go, making sure the wool is carefully packed (a good source for the wool is a worn out hot-water heater)... "

    ScaleType: This (oz6477) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-15
    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.

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.
