Looks like the fuselage formers and wing ribs really are missing. Should not be too difficult to reconstruct, though.
Fynnek : Spitfire : 20/02/2019

The wing shape has been considerably altered, probably in the interest of adding area. Check against documentation; I would call this semi scale at best.
David D : Texan II : 19/02/2019

Hallo, very professional. And the colors beautiful and the combination. He flies very well. Felicitations for a great modelist. Greetings
Erotav : Sirocco : 19/02/2019

Here is the structure of my Sirocco [more pics 004]. A nice rubber band model. I use a small electric motor with 2 small servos and 12 A esc, 2 cells 450 mA lipo.
JulienVermeire : Sirocco : 18/02/2019

Hi friends, I'm sending you a picture of Grumman Bearca,t plan ID oz4959 [more pics 005].
CarlosABGonzalez : Grumman F8F Bearcat : 17/02/2019

Hi Friends, I'm sending you pictures of my last project, the Polikarpov Po-2 plan, ID oz10255, with some modifications in wings and fuselage. Add some more ribs and add ailerons for more scale appearance. Greetings from Bogota Colombia.
CarlosABGonzalez : Polikarpov Po-2 : 17/02/2019

Hello, many thanks for finding the Wasp plan I requested on the wanted list. Best regards
TonyWright : Wasp : 17/02/2019

Hello. Does anyone have the 1/3 plane scanned with the parts pieces?
Fran : Pitts S-2A 60 : 16/02/2019

Please find attached a few photos of my Gipsy, built from the Keil Kraft kit recently relaunched by RIPMAX [more pics 015-019]. It is a very nice kit, the wood choice in mine being quite good and the laser cutting helping building no end....
ArnaldoCorreia : Gypsy : 16/02/2019

Miss Grandin photos [more pics 004-012]. This model, it's a lot of work (more than 300 hrs: aircraft and jig) but this is my passion. I added a special leading gear with my own design. Thanks again for all of your help!
LucDaigneault : Miss Grandin : 16/02/2019

That's a lovely story, Bob ♥ Say hi to Miss/ Mrs Martha from me!
Mary : Miss Martha : 16/02/2019

Hi, Looks wonderful! I remember when they came out in the late 70's ...a dream airplane. Well done. I want to do an electric conversion as well. Next winter!

It helps us catch typos and errors and make the site better, make the site quicker and easier to search. It's just good to fix stuff, to make things right. So in those cases, please don't take any time to preface your correction with apologies or mentioning being picky, or such. Just tell us what to fix. Many thanks, Steve :)

About Outerzone

Outerzone is a listing of free vintage and old-timer flying model aircraft plans to download. The listing is free for everyone - you don't need to register or log in to download these plans.

You can view model plans by category tag (like say free flight, control line, radio control, scale, rubber, etc...) using the browse plans pages. Use the list all page for a full A-Z text listing. There is a keyword search on the search page, or you can try the advanced search page for more detailed searches. There is also an experimental area called the TagMatrix where you can view all the plans that match your own chosen combination of tags (and wingspan and year of origin).

For a quick visual fix, you can page through the latest plan thumbnails added or the latest model pics added, at 60 pics per page.

Outerzone was designed to be maintained and updated by volunteers called Site admins who get involved but (perhaps predictably) it hasn't ever really worked out that way. So with the exception of a few good people who have helped out here in the past (see below) at the moment it's essentially just me. See the FAQ page for more details on how this site works, and why.

Outerzone is also (I hope) a secure repository for vintage model aircraft plans that may have historical significance.

Got feedback? Suggestions? email me. Really, feedback is what we need most.

Want to help me maintain and update this listing? See the get involved pages for more details.

Want to make a donation? The continued running of this site (since launch in March of 2011) involves both time and money. If you want to make a small contribution then click here to donate using Paypal. And bless you.

RCLibrary

Launched in September 2015, RCLibrary is the new sister site to Outerzone. A small but fast-growing collection of old-time modeller books and periodicals, held online as PDF files for free download. Everything is free. The library is open to everyone - you don't need to register or log in before you start downloading these titles. There are no charges or subscriptions. Basically, it's Outerzone for books.

Vinplandex

Click here to visit VinPlanDex - the online index of RCGroups vintage plans thread 1265873. Complete with search facility.

What is the difference between Outerzone and VinPlanDex? Well...

VinPlanDex is is an exhaustive and complete index of every plan that has ever been posted on the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread.

In comparison Outerzone is a slightly random collection of plans in PDF format. Outerzone does not include all the plans posted on the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread. At a guess, only about 80%. Some plans on here are not from that thread. Also, some are direct submissions.
