Jex Jet. PAA contest model.
Quote: "Jet Powered 'JEXJET' For Youthful Payload Pilots.
With fine prizes being offered in many meets and comparatively few entries to compete against, one is sure missing out on a lot of fun and prizes by not making one of these fine-flying Jetex powered jobs. This design, made as stable as possible for use by beginners, is almost impossible to loop because of its long tail moment arm.
Adjustment is quite easy. The stabilizer is set at the angle shown, the engine position shifted to obtain the best gliding angle. Then the Jetex engine is permanently fastened and powered flights are a cinch. More about that later.
Interested? Well, stock up on some very soft 1/16 sheets, that is the pri-mary size used. We used Sig 'Contest Balsa' in our model. From the full size plans obtain the proper outlines for the fuselage sides and top panel piece. Also cut out all required formers and rudder parts. Cement the side pieces to the nose block; be very careful to line up the sides. Pinning the tail ends of the side pieces together with help. Cement former A in place, then the fuselage top panel, which rests against the back Of A and is flush with the upper edges of the side pieces. The formers cement in the places shown on the plans. The bottom sheeting is next - when the cement has dried thoroughly, the sheeting is trim-med flush with the side sheeting.
The roof of the cabin area is cut out of very hard balsa or pine, shaped, and cemented in place. The celluloid windshield and side windows are added. When cementing the rudder to the fuselage..."

* 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.
