Phantom Flash ROG (oz10096)
About this Plan
Comet Phantom Flash R.O.G. Simple stick rubber model. Plan includes printwood.
Quote: "Steve and Mary, I have tried several times, unsuccessfully, to print this for your collection. I have finally succeeded. Hopefully this reaches you intact and won't need too much cleanup. It looks to me like a copy of the original Comet plan, so I don't think there will be any ethical problems with any of the after-market clones.
I read a few years back that the flat image on the plan is 16-1/4 inch. I enlarged the image to that size to build myself and noticed that the port semi span is 8 inches and the starboard is 8-1/4. Presumedly that was intentional.
There are a number of eighty-somethings here in the US for whom this was the first model that really flew well. Thanks, GrandpaHLG"
Note this is a low resolution plan.
Update 23/08/2019: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to higgphanx1 who posted this excellent 600 dpi scan up on HPA.
Note it turns out the wings shown on this plan are symmetrical.
Supplementary file notes
Previous scan version (includes second sheet, showing formers).
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsI confess I don't know whether one wing was designed to be longer than the other. Seems theoretically possible though. So I asked on RCGroups, and the answer seems to be no. This looks to be simply a printing/scanning error. The plan scan is low resolution, too. Does anyone out there have a higher res scan that we can work on? Then we can fix it up with equal sized wings :)

Thanks to Pit for finding the new scan posted on HPA. It seems this now clears up the question of whether the wings were intended to be the same size, once and for all.

* 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.
