Tommycat model airplane plan


Flying Models's Tommycat

The kitted Kyosho Tommycat was marketed more than 30 years ago, These plans were produced by Flying Models in 1980 which means that the glow powered (K&B .35) ducted fan (Axiflow RK-20B) shown in the plan sheet is going to be scarce if not impossible to find. For what it's worth, I estimate that the ducted fan duct is approximately 100mm, using Adobe Acrobat Reader measurement utility.

It seems to me that the model depicted here is designed based on the Grumman F-14 Tomcat which is an OK thing in my book. The model is built in the conventional manner - balsa, spruce and etc. The 35 inch wingspan seems small when looking at a 100mm +- ducted fan. or the ducted fan is very large for the wingspan.

I would like to hear about it if somebody builds this model.

About the Plans Printing Service.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Tommycat plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or ID and send us a message with the desired wingspan an any other info you may find useful.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and water proof.

Polyester: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).
