The Kaminskas Jungster 1 is a single-seat wooden ultralight homebuilt biplane with a fixed tricycle undercarriage. In 1957, the aeronautical engineer Rim Kaminskas of Los Angeles, CA, began with the designing of the Jungster 1. The simple and strong design is based it on the Bucker Jungmeister. The prototype first flew in 1962 and development of the aircraft lasted until 1964. The Jungster 1 is known a wooden airplane as much of the structure is made of wood trusses and the wings use spruce wood spars with fabric covering. There are fittings that are 4130 steel and the struts, landing gear, engine mount is made of 4130 tubing. Rim designed the Jungster 1 as an 80 percent scale replica of the Bücker Bü 133 for homebuilt construction. The wings are swept back an additional two degrees from the Jungmeister. The Jungster 1 is very simple to build, however no kits are available. The plans are clear and easy to follow, just like building a big model airplane.
