Gerry,

I found some plans for the Bucker Jungmeister that were from the Jan 1938 MAN. They show the INLINE engine! Claims to be a copy of the one Alexander Papana flew in air races and aerobatic events. Are these the plans you used?

Doubling them in size will give me a 36" span which kinda fits what I am looking for.

Yours is looking good.

Gerry,

I must confess that I hadn't read through this thread other than getting some updates while I was in Ohio because I have been over there with you many nights and have been seeing it first hand. I just read it all and I must say this is going to be one of...if not the finest models from the Orlando E-zone Squadron.

This is a great build which has come along way in a short amount of time and is picking up steam everyday.

Here is my top five list of things I don't want you to say during this build.

5. She will be flying tomorrow morning.

4. Let's stop by Amigo's for a beer and then we can build after that.

3. I'm going to leave the landing gear off because the field at Home Depot is rough.
2. Do you think she will fly okay with just rudder and elevator.

And the number one thing I don't want to hear you say or I think I will puke.

1. I think she will fly great will the dual IPS.

All kidding aside I have seen this build first hand and it is a masterpiece. Excellent craftsmanship Gerry. Earl

You forgot, the other statement :

1A. She will fly at half throttle

I think it may fly fine with an IPS...if it's propped right!!...and at half throttle like Carlos suggests!!...

All kidding aside...this is a great project for me since it really brings out the creative juices. Thanks a lot for all the positive feedback and comments...and I promise no beer bash at AMIGO's until after it's finished...

Earl, I'll try to stick to the five precepts you layed out.

Charlie, the plans are at:

scroll down the page to the 1/6 scale size. Have fun building!!

This is the web site that supposedly sells laser cut parts and accesories like cowlings and such for various scale models, the Jungmeister included but I have yet to check it out:

http://www.arizonamodels.com/

There's also another company that sells the fiberglass cowl and as soon as I find their link I'll post it here.

More to come...

Charlie,

I also have a set of Jungmeister plans that are for 32" wingspan, more like the size you're looking for.

These you can get at:

http://www.clevelandairline.com

let me know the progress...

Gerry,

Thanks for the links. I will be going over to visit the Arizona Models folks next month (they have a good SPAD model). Those guys have some great scale pieces, but, they seem to be a bit heavy for the littler electrics.

The older plans I have are for a rubber FF model that will build up pretty well. I will probably use it double size and convert to round engine. It will be a good size for my MPJet brushless (<20oz, I hope).

I will probably do a thread when I get around to it. I like to let everyone see how badly a build can get screwed up

It will be a while before I get started. I have to finish the Dumas GeeBee I am working on now, then a Bird Dog. So a month or so and I'll be ready to start. Plenty of time to mull over the various plans

You are just full of good stuff today Thanks, those are really nice. I had looked for the Cleveland Plans site before and couldn't find it. I figured they were out fo business. Glad to see they are not.

Lunch? That's where I'm going!

Nice looking build!
I have the Flyline plans. For .049 and Cannon "brick". Should be a great conversion. It's the inline version. Perhaps a winter project for me.

Thanks for the Cleveland link!

first wing panel

Completed the first wing panel today. It's one of the two on the starboard side.

I built it using the cap strip built in place rib method. Very even and light but needs to be handled with care to prevent crushing ribs...

The wing tip was laminated using three layers of 1/16 balsa strips. After building the other three remaining panels, I will then build the struts and line everything up. Then the landing gear and cowling...more to come!!

Gerry.

Don't feel bad.....Gerry could have been completed by now but, on account of some family that came over during our time away from work as a result from all these huricanes, plus some brain storming those wings should have been completed by now.

Oh, but, like Gerry always say....NO WINE BEFORE IT'S TIME
