Default Matchstick plans for cox .020

Hi All,

I am after plans for a plane called "Matchstick"...it is powered by a cox.020 and I think it was published in the May 1984 issue of Radio Controlled Models and Electronics. Would anyone have a copy of the plans for this model that I could purchase or perhaps get a copy of.

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards, Craig.

Craig-I do-but the magazine is packed up with most of my magazines, chattels and furniture in storage at present. If you can wait till later this year I can copy the plan and magazine article for you. IIRC-the other side of the plan is another 020-030 sized model, a Goodyear racer-a 'Rivets' I think it was........

Craig, I to have the plan stored in a box like ffkiwi, but may get to mine in a few days, then to scan it.From memory the reverse had an .020 powered "RIVETS" (racer)plan.

If one of you could (without fracturing too many copyright rules) post it here, that would be great. I'd love to build the little rivets

It was for exocet-RCU, not the OP. SGC indicated that he thought the RIVETs was on the back of the Matchstick plan.

Hi Gents,

Thank you for responding my request. If I could get the plan as a PDF or the like that would be much appreciated but if i have to wait until the magazines are unpacked that would be much appreciated as well.

Thank you all for your interest in my project.

Kind Regards, Craig.

BTW, I think the designer was Owen Kampen, not Kampton.

chevy43-its 23-5/8" tip to tip from the extreme ends of the ailerons, and I'm measuring off an original print of the RCM&E plan

It is listed as 24", but I don't know if it's at the leading edge, mid-chord, trailing edge or tip rib to tip rib. However, using any of those point should get you right in the ball park WRT scaling the plans.

Looks like a neat ugly stik clone for 2 channels, ailerons and elevator. Bet it would make a good electric flyer too.
