About this Plan

Aeronca 15AC Sedan - Radio control stand-off scale model for .41 - .60 power. Scale is 1/5.

Quote: - "Hi Mary, These are the plans from the Pica Kit. The wing sheet was wider than 36in so I had to do it in 2 passes. I am sure Steve will have no trouble sticking them back into one sheet. Dave"

The original idea with the Aeronca project that was entrusted to us (@EAZE RC Hobbies & Gifts) by Rowan & Shirley was to finish it as a Sport Scale Model of N1491H pictured below [more pics 005-015]. Some background on the plane (provided by Rowan & Shirley): "The Aeronca kit was purchased by Peter Mantel from Topflyte Hobbies in Durbanville back in the year 2000. Peter, an accomplished RC modeler (since 1968) managed to complete the fuselage structure and partially complete the wings and tail feathers, before succumbing to cancer, early in 2001. The partially built plane was then passed on by Peter's widow, Shirley, to his best friend and colleague of 25 years, Ian Fraser, to complete. Ian completed all structural building and some of the covering, using the blue heat shrink material in the kit. Unfortunately Ian had other commitments which kept him from taking the project further, so it was decided sometime in 2008 that Rowan Pressley (Shirley's new husband) would take the project over. Rowan (not a modeler) soon realized that that he did not have the time needed to proceed. It was then (mid-2010) that Bernard of @EAZE was approached, on the basis that he could have the plane, provided that he complete it and bring it to a flying state, for Peter's family to see fly on its maiden flight." Browsing through pages highlighting the restoration of N1331H (another Aeronca Sedan based in Switzerland) an important decision was made... this KIT couldn't be completed to mere sport scale standards!!! It would have done no justice to an absolutely astonishing aircraft from the Golden Era of Aviation. Bernard & Petro decided to add some more scale detail and make a little more of the model than what was probably originally intended. The plane is finished and ready for her maiden flight. I will still do more detail work on the cockpit panel & interior after the maiden flight has been done.

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.
