Big Stik (Model Builder magazine)


100 inch version of the Kraft Das Ugly Stik, originally published in Model Builder magazine.  Bud Nosen Models used to sell a kit and had their own version of the plan (which is available on Outerzone), but the Model Builder plan is more clear and better drawn.  I can help you get this plan.  If you want it, send me an email.

This is a very big plane, and it doesn’t make sense for me to send you a bunch of large balsa wood cut into rectangles, triangles, and other straight lines.  So you build the wing tips.  I’ll send you the plywood fuselage doubler, and you use it as a template to build the fuselage.  I suspect that most guys wouldn’t want the hatch, because the hole in F2 is big enough for a fuel tank and your hand, so I’ll leave that up to you.  I will send you the wing bolt blocks, bulkheads, tail bolt blocks, vertical stabilizer outline, elevator, ailerons, landing gear plate, and wing ribs.  All 3/8″ balsa parts are cut from two layers of 3/16 to be laminated by you.

Please choose dihedral or no dihedral.
