About this Plan

Double Duty Skylark - Free flight or tether control model.

Quote: - "Here's the Double Duty Skylark, a 32 inch model by Charles H. Grant that I scanned from the July 1951 Air Trails. It's touted as a ff/ukie/tether job, but it sure looks like a power ff to me. That cutaway drawing really impresses me. I'd have liked to see how it was done. No CAD back then. I wonder how much is constructed and how much is TLA? (i.e. that looks about right). The cutaway drawing is a remarkable contrast to the incredibly sloppy illustration for "Russia - Colossus of the Air Part III" that appears earlier in the issue. But that's propaganda and the Skylark is art. "

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.
