About this Plan

Bugaboo - Modern design in the vintage style, by Joost Bakker.

Quote: "In May 1992 I decided to design a free flight model, first of all for my own use. It would look like some British mid-30s designs. At the time it took only a few sketches and a day's building to finish the Bugaboo. The weather forecast had been good, a few days ahead it would change from cold wet to warm summer weather, so I aimed for that, and it worked: I was flying it all weekend - had started drawing Thursday afternoon before.
The design of the Bugaboo was so that you take a look at the plan and the whole construction can be seen as how to do it without problem. I knew many models did not get built because some complex structure seen on the plan makes the builder opt for another design. The idea was take one look and you see no problem anywhere. Yes, it looks like a more complex build when it's done... "

Hi Steve - Have included some pictures of my 150% full-size Bugaboo, powered by the MP Jet 2.5cc Letmo replica [more pics 004-007]. We have flown Bugaboos in various sizes, from 50% upwards, for both electric and i.c. power. All have proved to be great flyers and the large one is a good alternative to the Junior 60 or Halfax Spartan, being simple to build. Regards,

* 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.
