    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.

    RE: Matchstick plans for cox .020

    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........

    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

    ORIGINAL: exocet-RCU

    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.
