Description

If you want a plane that’s easy to build, maybe this is the one you’re looking for.  The fuselage is just a square box.

The plan shows a foam wing, but the kit includes a set of ribs for a balsa wing.  1/4″ jig holes are included.  Rib spacing is 1 7/16″ for the first two spaces, then 2 7/8″ the rest of the way out to the wing tip, making a total length of 31.5″ for each panel.

  • Leading edge is a plain rectangular balsa stick 3/8″ thick.
  • Trailing edge is a balsa stick 1/4″ thick.
  • Spars are 1/4 x 3/8 spruce or bass.
  • Landing gear block is 3/4 x 3/8, available from Sig.
  • Wing sheeting is 1/16″ balsa.

Use a piece of triangle stock for a Hoerner tip, or add tip plates, or whatever type of tip you like, and wrap the center section joint with glass cloth and epoxy.

Fin, rudder, stabilizer and elevator parts are included, accounting for a large portion of the cost of the kit.  The top and bottom of the fuselage, as noted on the plan, are made from 3/16″ balsa.  As these are just a bunch of rectangles, they are not included, except the aft top piece which is slotted for the fin.
