Quote: "Building the Black Ghost.

Wing Cut out all the ribs, gussets, the two 1/4 in, sheet tips and notch the trailing edge as per plan. Lay the bottom, main spar on the plan and cement the ribs in position. Add the top spar, leading edge and trailing edge in that order. When well set, lift from plan and add tips, gussets, weight box and weight, then box-in the centre section spars with 1/16 in sheet. Add the tip fairing pieces, sheet the cenire section top and bottom, then tape the leading and trailing edges as shown. Finally, cover with heavyweight tissue or silk, give two coats of clear dope and one of coloured if desiied, do not forget to well cement the lead-out guide in, over the main spar and along the rib. Fuel proof when all is set hard.

Tailplane and Fin. Cut the tailplane and fin from in. sheet. Hinge the tailplane, cut slot for horn and glue same in place. Sand to a smooth finish.

Fuselage. First make the fuel tank from shim brass or tin. Cut out formers 1, and 3, plus the bearers trimmed to the correct length. Assemble formers and 2 (using a good hard setting cement), onto the bottom bearer, place the tank in position, then glue other bearer in place, line up square and leave to set..."

This is my plan I did back in the late 1950's. Good to see it is still about and being used.

Seeing your work alive and well 60 years down the river must be a fantastic feeling. Thank you very much, Mr. Grimmett!

* 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.
