I AM NOT SELLING A KIT NOR A MODEL, only a new copy of the kit PLAN for the Berkeley BUCCANEER 48 Old Time Free Flight.  This design is so old (1938) that it does not even have a copyright date on it, as you can see in the Legend Box. It appears that all necessary parts patterns are on this old PLAN with the exception of the tapered ribs in the stabilizer. (Use my Handy Hints illustration of the stacking technique for cutting out tapered wing ribs. ) That is not the case for Berkeley plans since World War II. In the later years, Berkeley usually put only a few fuselage former patterns on their plans. But you can see on the bottom of this big PLAN that all of the fuselage formers are clearly outlined.  This full-size PLAN is a tad darker than I would like however it came to me as a blue... Less

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only an excellent new copy of the 1949 MINNOW Berkeley kit PLAN for you to scratchbuild your own model. In the 1940s & 50s Berkeley models put out some excellent kits of the major midget pylon racers in that era. First they offered a BUSTER and SWEE PEA and then this outstanding MINNOW. The Buster and Swee Pea kits featured the famous Arden engines for power and had tissue covered 25 span wings. They did not have sheet balsa fuselage sides. (I can offer copies of those two vintage kit PLANS separately for anyone desiring them.)  This MINNOW was a larger model to carry the new McCoy .19 rear venturi racing engine or an Ohlsson & Rice .23 FRV engine. Since the pylon racing MINNOW was aluminum covered, Berkeley's MINNOW kit model was covered throughout with sheet... Less

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT OR MODEL, only a new copy of the 1941 Berkeley AMERICAN ACE 36 free flight kit PLAN and a copy of the PARTS PATTERNS. The ad in a 1941 Model Airplane News model magazine explains it all when it comes to this classic old time free flight. This was a reduced version of Henry Struck's famous NEW RULER (as was the 54 wing span version that I sell separately.) This 1940 AMERICAN ACE 36 PLAN shows an Atom .09 ignition engine. But any good .02 gas or electric equivalent will do just fine today. You can easily add rudder-only RC for a great relaxing way to relive what it was like for those of us who were kids in the 1940s and had to chase after one of these little beauties as it was riding out of sight on a hot thermal riser.

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only new copies of BOTH Berkeley kit and the magazine PLANS for the famous QUEST Team Racer. Berkeley's kit of Keith Storey's famous QUEST Team Racer from back in the 1950s was one of their best. It has a 27-1/2 span on a solid shaped wing (no ribs to cut out) and the full fuselage is easy to construct. Any .29 engine was suitable for this fine model. The Keith Storey design was published in July, 1951 as Storey's 51 Team Racer. The construction article and original PLAN will help, especially with making the cowling. I show the PLANS pages from the article in their original size. I am offering a full- size enlargement of the magazine PLANS for your enjoyment.

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only a new, full-size copy of an extremely rare RC Berkeley 61 RC scale model kit PLAN. It took me nearly 50 years to find a copy of this 61 span semi-scale RC L-19 BIRD DOG design that was put out by Berkeley about the time the firm was bought by Fox. The plan is so big that it won't print out on a modern commercial Zerox copy machine. This full-size plan is not perfect and doesn't have every single parts pattern but it is all that was to be found in my nationwide searches. The model was powered by a Fox .15 because it is a rudder-only design that can be upgraded to a 3-channel RC easily enough. Since it is light weight and has enough dihedral in the wings to allow the model to roll out of a turn into level flight, it did not need a .20 to .29 engine. Also it came... Less

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only a new copy the Berkeley kit PLAN for the 18-1/4 span UC scale TRI-PACER to make your own model from scratch.  This really nicely drawn PLAN has all of the fuselage bulkhead patterns, the stabilizer and rudder outlines and the wing rib pattern. Since the wing is a straight chord only the root rib pattern is needed and it is shown on top of the fuselage.  The model called for a Cox Pee Wee .02 engine. An electric motor would do fine today.  A Stanzil single-line control mechanism is shown but most scratch-builders are going to use the traditional bellcrank.

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT OR A MODEL, only a new copy of the kit PLAN and parts patterns from my original Berkeley 36 span, exact-scale, UC / FF / RC kit. This is the famous CESSNA L-19 BIRD DOG that I flew in the Army in the 1960s.   This exact-scale Berkeley L-19 BIRD DOG model came out in 1960 while I was in the U.S. Army flight school flying this very plane for 7 months. This 1/2A, 36 span model is stable enough for rudder-only RC adaptation or even 2-channel RC (the exact scale elevator outlines are on the PLAN). The reason for the flight stability is that the full-scale Bird Dog (which I flew in the U.S. Army for over 10 years) was what we called a rudder airplane. That meant that the pilot could pick up a low wing to level flight with a touch of the rudder, no aileron movement was... Less

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only a new, full-size copy of a Berkeley ERCOUPE kit PLAN for you to build your own model. This is a new copy of the Berkeley 45 span model ERCOUPE kit PLAN. Berkeley misnamed it as the AIRCOUPE. Maybe the Forney company changed the spelling when they obtained the rights to manufacture the ERCOUPE, I don't know. This model was intended to be flown any way you wanted: free flight with an .074 to .09 engine, RC with a .15 engine and u-control with a up to a .29. The fuselage former patterns are on the PLAN, which is not always the case with a PLAN for an ERCOUPE model. I also include a scale documentation article as seen in one picture.

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT NOR COMPLETED MODEL, only a nice new copy of the full- size PLAN to build your own model from. Berkeley's 54-inch wing span RC scale model kit of the AERONCA C-3 is a really nice piece of work. Don McGovern always drew the best plans for Berkeley. This RC model is a larger and sturdier kit following the success of their 36 inch span FF kit. I ALSO INCLUDE A COPY MACHINE COPY OF THE WIRE LANDING GEAR SHAPES AND THE CELLULOID CANOPY OUTLINES. YOU CAN SEE THAT MOST NEEDED PARTS PATTERNS ARE ON THE PLAN. The exposed 2-cylinder engine and vertical exhaust stack used on the 1930s AERONCA C-3 (and later on the AERONCA K) are clearly shown on this plan. The engine recommended in 1957 was the very popular & dependable K & B .15 My last pictures are of the exposed cylinder... Less

This is a 36 wing span Paul delGatto designed CESSNA 180 model intended for free flight or u-control and powered by 1/2-A glow engines. It can become an RC for rudder and elevator control. Since it has a high wing dihedral for stability, if made up as an RC model, it will level itself when it rolls out of a turn. My last picture is f

The LIL ZILCH has a 38 inch wing span and called for a Glo Torp .29. A good .15 would be more than enough today. The PEE WEE ZILCH has a 32 inch wing span and called for an Arden .09-.19. A good Golden Bee will be enough today. All the necessary patterns are shown on the PLANS.

The SUPER DUPER ZILCH by Berkeley was Jim Saftig's simplified version of his famous SUPER ZILCH. Picture # 5 shows the SUPER DUPER ZILCH flat sheet fuselage sides on a model on which the builder has used a small aileron tab on the outboard wing to make sure the model did not roll in on takeoff.  The model has a 52 wing span and usually used a Super Cyclone ignition .64 or Ohlsson & Rice ignition .60 engine. Today you would use a Fox .35.  (Here is a historical note for those who might use what old timers know about famous designs. Saftig's INVERTING STUNT SHIP had a very thick airfoil.

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only a new copy of the Berkeley kit PLAN & patterns for the 44 span PIPER TRI-PACER. This Berkeley RC scale PIPER TRI-PACER was a very popular kit in 1955. It's 43-3/4 span was just the right size for a good .09 engine of that time. A throttled .09 engine would be just right today. A model built from this PLAN is scale and you won't have to reduce the stabilizer size when you add elevator control.

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only a new, full-size copy of a 1949 UC PLAN of the Steve Wittman BUSTER pylon racer from the 1930s, 40s & 50s so you can build your own model.  This is a Paul Plecan PLAN that called for an Arden .19 for power---even though the wing span is only 24. This same span is on the Berkeley UC kit PLAN which called for an Arden .09. But it had a stick built fuselage and was very light in weight. The more recent SIG profile UC model also has a 24 wing span. I used a ST .15 in mine.  This unique PLAN features a full sheet balsa fuselage and has all of the parts patterns you will need on it. The Arden engines were shown on 1949 UC model PLANS because Ray Arden developed the newfangled glow plug. Models could be a lot lighter with no need for batteries, coils and condensers... Less

I AM NOT SELLING A KIT, only a new copy of Chuck Hollinger's famous 70 span scale RC J-3 CUB for scratch-building one.   When Chuck Hollinger's famous pure scale, rudder-only RC PIPER J-3 CUB model was first published, it became instantly popular. It used a Fox .19 and had plug-in wing panels so they would pop off in a hard landing and not destroy the plane. The PLAN sold so well that a kit was produced and sold for years by Berkeley. I show the knock-off wing and strut attachment diagram. The fuselage and wing assembly diagram shows how the kit varied some at the leading edge from these Air Trails pure scale model PLAN.  The first picture shows the 70 span PLAN with a yardstick so you can see that it is full-size. The last picture is of me at a Reading PA Air Show long ago. I was fondly... Less
