S.E.5a WW 1 Scout

S.E.5a WW 1 Scout

The S.E.5a Scout had much better performance than the Sopwith Camel, but was plagued with problems from the underdeveloped Hispano Suiza-geared H-S 8B engine. However, together with the Camel, the S.E.5a was instrumental in maintaining British air superiority from mid-1917 and throughout the rest of World War 1. It had a wingspan of 26 feet […]
Sky Skooter

Sky Skooter

Before we begin, I need to explain why I designed the Sky Skooter. I have always been intrigued by the idea of taking my wife and kids or some friends to a distant place, 500 or 600 miles away, faster than I could in a car. The Cirrus, the Lancair, and a few other 200-plus […]

Giant-Scale Howard Ike Miss Chevrolet

Giant-Scale Howard Ike Miss Chevrolet

Editor’s note: Henry Haffke has been a contributor and consultant to Model Airplane News for close to 40 years and one of his most popular projects was his 40-size, 56-inch-span, Howard “Ike” DGA-5 racer Miss Chevrolet published in the April 1979 issue of Model Airplane News. Henry teamed up with expert pilot Sid Clement and […]
A6M3 Zero

A6M3 Zero

The Imperial Japanese Navy’s Type “0” fighter is probably the most recognized Japanese aircraft of World War II. Coming as a bit of a surprise to the Americans at the beginning of the war, it was widely used during the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Years ago, my father started building .19-sized Zero, but he […]

Arado 76

Arado 76

By Stan Rutz THE SEPTEMBER 1938 ISSUE of Model Airplane News contained plans for a 20-inch-span, rubber-pow- . ered Arado 76: “… a new German fighter/ trainer.” I built it, and when .049 glow engines emerged a decade later, I turned it into a Wasp-powered U-control and flew it indoors. It was a crowd pleaser—especially […]
Sukhoi Su-29

Sukhoi Su-29

Sport-scale 2-place aerobatic trainer HAD designed a1/4-scalemodel of the  Su-26, so the decision to build the new Su-29 was not difficult to make. After receiving 3-view drawings and technical information from Bob Banka at Scale Model Research*, I started my new project. I decided on an 80-inch-span model that would be IMAA-legal and light enough […]
Super Hots

Super Hots

By Dan Santich Kick some tails with the new king in the fun-fly arena! There is no doubt about it the Hots is hot! Midwest Products has already sold out on their second run of kits and M.A.N. has sold more plans (#4841 for $6.00) for it than for any other model. Why is that? […]
F-104 Starfighter

F-104 Starfighter

A Speed 400 pusher jet with performance I HAVE BEEN FLYING SPEED 400 electric-powered models for years with great success and have gotten a lot out of these inexpensive, $9 motors. So, I thought “Why not see how far I can push a standard Speed 400?” When I took my F-104 Starfighter to the flying […]
P-51 Mustang

P-51 Mustang

A 1.20-size warbird for the sport flier OK; let’s admit it. Everyone wants to build a P-51. It drips power, courage and heroism. It’s an icon of WW II fighters; why shouldn’t you build one? That’s the question Chris Chianelli asked me, and it’s why he proposed this project. A 1/6- scale model yields a […]
De Havilland Twin Otter

De Havilland Twin Otter

The Canadian de Havilland Turbo-prop Twin Otter was designed for use as a regional commuter and for other special applications. The plane has a 65-foot wingspan, can carry up to 12 passengers or a load of 4,400 pounds and can operate from short runways. This 1/12-scale design of the Twin Otter makes a great 4-channel […]
SBD Dauntess Torpedo Bomber

SBD Dauntess Torpedo Bomber

A CLASSIC SOUTH PACIFIC WARBIRD•ELECTRIFIED! Often referred to as •Slow But Deadly,• the Douglas SBD Dauntless was the U.S. Navy’s frontline dive-bomber from 1939 through 1944. Considered obsolete at the time it entered regular service, the Dauntless nonetheless went on to sink more Japanese ships than any other U.S. aircraft. Heavily armed with up to […]
Miles Sparrowhawk

Miles Sparrowhawk

IMAA-legal Golden Age racer My 26-percent-scale Miles Sparrowhawk is a high-perfor- mance, aerobatic aircraft. Its thick wing and stabilizer airfoils give t h e model stable, relatively slow landing approaches and excellent slow-speed characteristics. As a bonus, it can be flown a t any IMAA o r IMAC (Basic) event. And since the prototype first […]
