Daniel Cerutti's Junkers JU-52

Type Model: Free Flight, WW2, German, Cargo / Passenger, Trimotor

Wingspan:26.5 inches, low-wing, dihedral
Engine: single engine; Rubber powered - 1 rubber tractor "engine" - 2 "dummy engines

Plan Language: English

The Junkers Ju 52 (nicknamed Tante Ju ("Aunt Ju") and Iron Annie) is a German trimotor transport aircraft manufactured from 1931 to 1952. It saw both civilian and military service during the 1930s and 1940s. In a civilian role, it flew with over twelve air carriers including Swissair and Deutsche Luft Hansa as an airliner and freight hauler. In a military role, it flew with the Luftwaffe as a troop and cargo transport and briefly as a medium bomber. The Ju 52 continued in postwar service with military and civilian air fleets well into the 1980s.

The model is built using conventional stick & tissue methods. Low weight is a very important factor in the construction and finishing.this model. The wing-mounted "engines" are not powered but the builder might want to consider free wheeling propellers for effect when the model is being flown.

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 Junkers JU-52 or any other PDF 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.
