About this Plan

Sea Cat - AKA Sea-Cat, Sea Kat - 68 in span gas seaplane by Henry Struck from 1950s MAN. For either free flight or radio control.

Quote: - "Are you looking for a mile square, level flying site? Well, there are plenty of them around , and no permits are required for their use ...all of which is just one way of saying that you haven't really enjoyed model flying until you have tried flying boats. To participate in this ultimate in sport, we present the Sea Cat, developed through the years ...when in 1945 the NACA planing tail hull designs were developed, the basis of a really high performance flying boat became available. These long, narrow, deep draft hulls, besides offering greatly reduced air drag main tain an almost constant trim angle throughout the take-off run, eliminating the necessity of rocking up onto the step..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
