The Fleet Model 1 (originally the Consolidated Model 14 Husky Junior) and its derivatives were a family of two-seat trainer and sports plane produced in the US and Canada in the 1920's and 1930's. They all shared the same basic design and varied mainly in their power plants. They were all orthodox biplanes with staggered, single-bay sings of equal span and fixed tailskid undercarriage.

The giant scale 1930 FLEET plan set is 1/3 scale and consists of three large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure. The 1930 FLEET plan shows the installation of fixed wire gear, servos and Zenoah G-62 engine and features two, two piece wings.  The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com  forums for Ron Weiss plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon - Fri EST 631-467-4765. The plan includes full-size templates for all the required parts allowing you to cut a complete “kit” before you start construction. If you don’t have the tools or time to cut your own kit Nick Ziroli Plans now carries laser cut wood kits for the 1930 FLEET plan. The plans have instructions and building notes on the plans. If you choose an engine not shown on the plans you should have it on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe with cloth such as Sits system or Solartex an iron on cloth covering.  Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the 1930 FLEET.
