Quote: "Longster III. One of the first of the homebuilt aircraft to appear in early 1930's was the Longster. Designed and built by the Lonmg Brothers of Cornelius, Oregon, the Model II was one of the best. Powered by a Heath Henderson 20 HP engine, the aircraft was capable of about 70 mph with a gross weight of 575 pounds.
This model has been designed as accurately as possible to the original aircraft. Some material sizes have been exaggerted to produce a flying model with sufficient strength to meet small engine requirements.
Original registration number 10115."

* 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.
