Sterling changed the wing design as they did with the S-1/S-1A but continued to list the kit as S-5. Here is one of each [more pics 003, 004]. The black one {really dark purple} has the sheeted l/e and the maroon & white is the first style {built by Phil Page}, and has the first type Fox .19 while mine has the early Fox .15. Both are used every year for the world wide Ringmaster fly-a-thon.

Got a few photos of my Ringmaster Junior, you are free to use if desired [more pics 005:start, 006:paint touched up, 007:repair completed].

It appears that the plan is incomplete. It only shows a plan view of the wing a diagram of the construction sequence.

This box and the decal from the kit are after Sterling, being produced by Estes [more pics 008, 009]. The Ringmaster Junior continued by Estes was their model STE6751.

I recently picked up a Sterling Ringmaster Jr. When checking the box I thought it had the plans. It only had the instructions. So as a faithful OuterZone follower I checked and you only have the plans and not the instructions. So please find attached a set of Sterling Ringmaster Jr. instructions. Or page 2 to the plans.

* 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.
