Hi Steve, am I the only one to see this or does this model really look like a semi scale Payne Knight Twister homebuilt with an in-line automotive engine as published by Bjorn Carlstrom in the 1970-ies / 1980-ies? At least it could be made into a model of it, easily. Love your site! I used to build Tern Aero kits as a kid, none of which flew really well. Now I can try again. Cheers,

Good point. It seems the Knight Twister does date back to 1932 (I had to look it up), so maybe there was some influence there.

In fact the immatriculation number is from the Knight Twister of 1933 and you can find identical plans for c/L version.

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.
