Junior 60 (oz9995)
About this Plan
Keil Kraft Junior 60. Free flight gas powered sport model. 5 ft span for engines of 5-7cc. Weight approx 3-4 lbs.
A classic design. The Junior 60 was an enormously popular and successful free flight model in the UK, and as such was often also used as a first R/C sport and trainer model.
Quote: "The Junior 60 is a 60 inch span free flight model of simple and rugged design. It is also Britain's most popular model for radio control."
The original KK kit dates from 1946. There is also a later revised 1955 Junior 60 (oz1398) plan available, with a wider body for easier RC installation.
This plan bears the legend: "Plan from Derick Scott".
This plan is stamped as Archive #003676 from the Cooperative Plans Service. See their website at www.co-op-plans.com
Note the actual wingspan of the Junior 60 is (rather confusingly) 63 inches. For reasons unknown, Keil Kraft continually referred to it, and advertised it, as being 60 inches in wingspan. Many thanks to Brian Cox for help with this.

Hi Steve and Mary. Please find attached photos of my latest model from your fantastic Outerzone plan service. It's the original Albert E Hatfull Junior 60 1946 version, I would have been two when originally designed [more pics 004, 005]. I always wanted to build one so here it is, split wing version. I must admit its been a most enjoyable build. Just waiting for the maiden flight. Once again, thanks for making these vintage plans available.

Hi... photos of what I have called the New Junior 60 [more pics 008,009]. Reasons for the "New" is that the original design I downloaded from Outerzone has been modified to make it a much better. The following are the main modifications. The wing section is Clark Y, sheeted top and bottom with spar webs to make a full D-box. The fuselage has formers in the cockpit area to make alignment easier, and the nose has been lengthened 1.5 inches to save carrying a lot of lead. It is powered by an OS 20 FS and flies beautifully on tick-over. 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.
