About this Plan

Jungster II. Rubber scale homebuilt parasol model.

Quote: "Homebuilt aircraft lend themselves to a modeler's world. This Free-Flight parasol delivers some great performance.

While thumbing through the pages of Air Progress Homebuilt Aircraft, Fall and Winter 1966-67, I came across a double page photo spread of the cute little Jungster II, designed by Rim Kaminskas of Monrovia, California. The aircraft is a fully aerobatic homebuilt airplane with a terrific rate of climb due to its light weight and the brute power of the 180 hp Lycoming 0-360-A-1A. Looking over the photos I noted the ideal proportions for a Free-Flight rubber powered Scale model.

After sending to K&S Aircraft Supply for their illustrated brochure and good three view drawings, I designed and built the model and it proved to be even more than I had expected. With its 15 deg sweepback, no dihedral is needed since 5 deg sweepback equals 1 deg dihedral and due to the sweepback, the center of pressure or balance point is so far back that the model balanced perfectly with no added nose weight so commonly needed on most scale models. This is one model that flew right off the board the first flight with no adjustment whatsoever.

Construction Techniques: Build the fuselage first, in the conventional manner, using hard 1/16 balsa for the longerons..."

    ScaleType: This (oz8694) 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.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaminskas_Jungster_II
    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.

* 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.
