1937 Texaco Winner - Free flight gas model. This is not a full-size plan. Originally published in Air Trails 7/38.
Quote: - "All Texaco winners have been outstanding models. Hanley's 1937 winner continues this famous line of models. It incorporates the features which Hanley deemed necessary for a contest winner - fast climb, slow glide, and stable flight. The model lived up to all these requirements despite the fact that it was designed, built, and test-flown two weeks before the National Meet."
Article pages, text and pics, also includes some drawings of rib and some formers at full size, plus motor mount detail. Thanks to BillW.
Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
