About this Plan

Sea Cat - Sport flying boat model.

Quote: - "The Sea Cat is a multi-purpose model designed to give top performance in Radio Control, PAA Load and Free Flight flying, from either water or land. The use of the planing tail type hull developed by the NACA has made it posssible to reduce air drag to a minimum and still accomplish easy take offs from the water. Rubber shock mounted tip floats afford maximum stability and protection on the water and can easily be removed for land plane flying. Landings on grassy fields without wheels are smooth, without any nosing over tendency - an extra dividend of the long boat hull."

This is the Berkeley kit of the Sea Cat, designed by Henry Struck. The Sea Cat first appeared in MAN 1954 see Sea Cat (oz304) for full details. That plan includes printwood.

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.
