Here is a picture of my Bluepants. A fine flying model powered by an Oliver Tiger. I used it to come 4th in my first vintage competition.

Hi Steve, I thought that I should mention that the tank position shown on the plan works well with an ED Racer but is too low for a front induction engine like the Oliver.

Here's a couple of photos of a Blue Pants I once owned. I didn't build it, but bought it from the model shop in Godalming. I fitted a Spanish ZOM 2.5cc diesel I had as it fitted the bolt spacing in the model and therefore avoided hacking into the front end. It flew OK until I tried the first loop at which point it came in on the lines and that was that.

Some pictures of the Blue Pants that I built out of "Svenson" nostalgia and in honor of the Belgian Henri Stouff, world champion stunt 1954 [more pics 006-011].

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.
