anyone got a copy of the plans for the Marutaka Rufe?
How about the instruction book for the b-17? I want to see the dimensions to verify the scale accuracy of it.
Thanks

For those looking for a Royal P-51 kit.. I came across this ad... I'd jump on it but I have too many planes as it is!

I discovered where most of the royal kits and plans went! Ever look at the plans for the guillows b-17 and other kits?
The darkened areas, outlines and templates are similar to royal plans. Further more I scaled up their plans for the Rufe and they match the Marutaka Rufe plans exactly without any deviations!

I am guessing this is coincidence. If both companies attempted the best outline possible, both plans should be close if nearly exactly the same. Sounds like for the B-17 at least, both companies did a good job? Perhaps both plans used the same 3-view source to loft the plans (Royal frequently used Paul Matt 3-views).

Hello

Here is my Royal Zero (A6M5-b mod.52).
It was finished and flown in year 1997, therefore the picture quality is not so good.
I made several modifications on it, like rectractable/springloaded main gears with doors, homemade rectractable/steerable tail gear, switchable lights, homemade cockpit with open/closed window, homemade fully inclosed muffler, modified engine cowling with dummy exhaust stacks and dummy three bladed propeller and spinner.
In the wings I built in a 2 degrees wash out, like the real Zero, for better stall caracteristics.
The Zero was fitted with a Super Tigre G90 engine, JR-radio and Futaba servos.
Total weight was 5 Kg and no ballast needed for balancing.
Hello again!

Here is a link to a short film clip of my Royal Zero on YouTube [8D]

That is a great Zero! Thanks for the video Zerofreak! It looks like it flies great; how much do you think it weighed? My Zero will stay earth-bound for now since it has a slight warp in the middle of one of the wings. I got most of it out while I was glassing it, but it still makes me nervous on a highly loaded model like this. You did a nice job on yours (that is mine at the start of the thread). I hope you still have yours. -Eric

Hello

My Zero weights precise 5 kg. without added weight to the nose.
But unfortunately it crashed badly because of a pilot error, and was not rebuilt again before it was thrown away.

Gosh...I wouldn't have asked for the video....but I understand the curiosity. Fly and all" 13.5 pounds is one of the heavier I have heard of, but I haven't weighed mine yet. What is 5Kg in American pounds? Thanks for the video Zerofreak; it is a success story....for a time! If you have the guts to fly'em I am right with you. One can only hangar so many planes.

Edit: Zero... it is also good to admit pilot error. Most here do when it is clear, thanks for the honesty. I think it encourages people to know it is the pilot that crashed, and that we can all be better model airplane pilots! In other words; work on your flying skills folks! A good plane will fly with a good pilot/builder (perhaps I am getting closer). Just the same, build her straight!

not to be rude but it appears fixable. Oh well one mans loss is anothers treasure.
I had a great planes cap 21 that got caught in the weeds on landing and snapped the wing in half 6 inches from the middle rejoined it no problem.

Rebuildable, yes. But some builders only want to build the plane once! The wreckage is usually worth more to someone else.
I have certainly rebuilt quite a few, but they were all someone elses planes. My crashes usually go to the dump as well.

I dont mind doing it, I've got a combat plane someone gave me last year that I flew the hell out of involving loops 3 feet from the ground till it crashed and though a new kit is $40 I'm rebuilding it.
