Miss Science was a free flight model designed by Frank Ziac in 1939, and first appeared as an article and a series of drawings in the September 1939 edition of Popular Mechanics magazine.
We have taken Frank Ziac's original drawings and created a full size builders plan for the 72" model, to allow easy building of this wonderful vintage model. The plan and kitset includes information and material to build functional rudder and elevator for RC.
Like our other 72" Vintage models, this would fly beautifully on a 35 to 45 four stroke, or if you're lucky enough to own a vintage engine, go for it!
And who better to display the Miss Science for us than Mrs Science, Professor Palmer MB, ChB, PhD, FRACP.

Short Kit Or Complete Airframe Kit?
A Short Kit includes a full size printed plan and all of the laser cut parts that are required as part of the complete airframe build.
Items such as wing ribs, dihedral joiners, fuselage formers & fuselage parts, doublers, bulkheads and so on.
Every part which is a complex cut is precisely laser cut as per the plan and included in the short kit. Some kits may also include vacuum formed ABS parts like canopies or cowlings.
With a Short Kit, the only items you need to add to the laser cut parts to build a complete airframe are components which are simply cut to length. Parts such as wing spars, wing sheeting or fuselage sheeting for example.
A Complete Airframe Kit includes the Laser Cut Short Kit, plus the entire list of additional materials required to complete the airframe build.
Select this option when adding to your cart to purchase all of the materials required to complete the airframe build.
Every kit includes a full size printed plan, and where available the designers original construction notes. The kits do not include miscellaneous hardware such as pushrods, control horns, hinges, wheels etc.
