Stock image only. Actual cover art may differ.
A comprehensive guide to aircraft modelling which covers everything from the basic principles to making your first flying model through to advanced scale construction models. The key to the book is the extraordinary thoroughness of its scope and content, from the step-by-step instructions to the detailed scaled plans and illustrations.

Even the 'summary of contents' is five A4 pages long showing at-a-glance what there is to learn and how to get additional information and practice! The book covers your first flying model, what materials and tools are needed, marking and cutting, designing your own plane, construction drawing, enlarging plans and building models. It explains the simple rules of flight, building a glider with control surfaces, building a 'progressive' trainer, choosing radio control, how to handle your first flight, preflight checks, flight debriefing, adding an engine, engine management, engine tuning, powered flight and adding wheels.

Flying instructions include taxiing, takeoff, landing, basic flight manoeuvres, turning, figure of eight, flying in a wind, dead stick landing, loop and roll. Modelling techniques covered include working with polystyrene, moulding in fibreglass, vacuum forming, finishing and fitting out, installing large engines, registration of plans and much, much more..
