Mr. Mulligan 24 inch FAC scale

Mr. Mulligan 24 inch FAC scale

from 39.00

This is a 24 inch wingspan balsa scale model of the famous Mr.Mulligan racer of the late 1930s. This particular plan was drawn with the FAC scale Thompson Trophy or Bendix mass launch events in mind. The design is optimized for free flight so that she should come in at a low all up weight, trim out easily, and be strong enough to withstand the rough and tumble of free flight flying. Don Deloach and I both built prototypes and both came in under 50 grams. 

Special Features: Hand selected and graded wood. DT mechanism designed into the kit, 3D radial engine, built up cowl. Geodetic wing construction around the wing roots. Self jigging flight surface assemblies, lightened ply for high strength areas, laminated flight surface outlines.

Kit includes: All wood required to build the model except longerons, and wing spars and leading edges, but including all cross braces for fuselage, tapered stringers, balsa wheels, ply jigs for cowl construction, and three forms for laminated flight surface outlines .

Does not include prop, hardware for front end, spars and laminating wood.
