Red Admiral. Low-wing sport rubber model.
Quote: "A 32 inch low-wing high performance sport model. Red Admiral, by RS Brewer.
Many of we 'oldie' modellers will remember with not a little affection the delightful Cruiser Pup (oz10034) low wing kit model which was so popular among the sport flying fraternity in those very pleasant flying days of almost twenty years ago, when contests were a rarity and flying fields no problem.
Rip's little Pup was the perfect introduction for the beginner and would flit around the field in a very stable manner for 60 seconds on any flight. Mr Brewer's Red Admiral design brings back these fond memories with its similar layout, embellished with modern trends of thought in larger fuselage proportions and using more area, more power and a larger propeller to obtain high performance and longer duration.
Construction is within the capabilities of any beginner and the flight trim procedure is as simple as one could desire - why not tackle it as a one-design club model, or build one to while away pleasant moments on the local playing fields?
Cut out basic fuselage from light sheet, add vertical spacers and stiffeners. Mark position of all formers and bottom spacers and then join the two sides using forms F6, F8 and F10 and their corresponding bottom spaces, check for squareness and allow to dry. Then pull in at front and rear and add the rest of the formers and spacers, holding both ends together with rubber bands. Add sternpost, stringers, fairings and u/c tubing.
Make up tailskid, cement to 1/16 sheet fill-in at stern, and cement assembly firmly in place. Make up u/c legs and braces, insert them in the tubes on the model, adjust for correct take, bind with fuse wire and solder. Bind fairing securely in place, assemble spats, allow to dry and then carve and sand to shape... "

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.
