About this Plan

Skyranger. Sport rubber model. Published in Aeromodeller, August 1942.

Quote: "Off the Secret List. We would ask readers to study the photograph on this page with care. To all intents and purposes it is a wicked-looking fighter just off the secret list - yet it is actually only 20 in span! This first-class free-lance mid wing fighter design makes an admirable flying model and reduced scale working drawings are given on page 369 of this issue. FULL SIZE working drawings are available through The Aero-Modeller Plans Service, price is, 6d. post free.

This is a welcome escape from the stereotyped duration model and, judging by actual flight tests, its performance does not suffer.

We would further remind readers of another semi-scale model available through the Aeromodeller Plans Service - the Jackdaw (oz9420). Details of a grand competition for this machine were given on pages 246 and 247 of the June Aeromodeller. DAR."

* 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.
