About this Plan

Midwest Zero. Radio control sport-scale model. Wingspan 60 in, wing area 552 sq in. For 35 - 45 2-stroke, or 40 - 50 4- stroke engines, and 4 channel radio.

Quote: "A quick-building warbird model that flies like a sport plane. The deadly Zero, Japan's premier fighter plane, joins the Midwest warbird squadron. The third design in our new series of Fun-Scale warbirds, this intermediate flyer possesses the same simplified construction features as our previous warbird nodels, and the same firgiving handling conmbined with maneouverability. If you are looking to step up from your trainer, then - step up to a Zero. You will enjoy the taildragger experience, and be genuinely surprised how easy it is."

Update 17/11/2018: Added 'Faux' plan drawing, thanks to JeffGreen.

Quote: "Hello, This is what I came up with for the missing parts for the fuselage on the Midwest Zero. You can make parts F-7, F-8 & F-9 after you have the basic frame of the fuselage built, add the wing saddle parts to fuselage sides before beginning to build the fuselage. Lay the assembled basic fuselage on light ply & trace along the inside areas for the parts, remember to add the tabs on the outside edges ofF-7, F-8 & F-9 before cutting out the parts. Best Wishes, Jeff Green in Las Vegas"

The ribs can be generated but hard to model for only one bulkhead is given.

* 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.
