Flying Aces Sportster - Rubber sport model.
This seems to be is the first published drawing of the 'Flying Aces Sportster' design, from FA 1935. For later (and larger) versions of this design, from 1999 and 2008 [see oz1143 and oz5000].
Quote: - "Hi, I think the following image is the original which lead to the illustration on the cover of the FAC News, which lead to the recreation shown here. https://static.rcgroups.net/forums/attachments/6/8/2/8... ...the SAM rubber list, I think the one for 2012-2014, had it as the March 1935 issue of [Flying Models]. In any case, it appeared in the November 1996 Wingovers and Wallbangers, edited by John Koptonak. Lincoln"

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.
