About this Plan

Cessna Bird Dog. Rubber scale model. Wingspan 22 in. From the Frog Senior Scale series.

Quote: "This model is one of the Frog Senior Scale Series, which consists of a range of models representing popular light aircraft, all approximately 22in. span. They embody very simple and quick constructional methods, all main parts being ready-cut to shape, and only require cementing together.

To ensure a satisfactory job, study the plan and check the parts with it before commencing. Cement and dope are not included in this kit, but they can be bought at any model shop. Use quick-drying balsa cement such as Frog Universal. You will also need a balsa-cutting knife or a razor blade, and a few pins.

When you have built this model, remember there are many others in this series equally attractive.

Fuselage. Start by pinning parts 1 and 2 to the drawing and build the side-frame structure around them, using the 3/32 x 1/16 in strips supplied, as shown in fig. 1. Cut two sets of strips, and build the second side over the first with a piece of tracing paper between them..."

    ScaleType: This (oz10509) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cessna_O-1_Bird_Dog
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
