Red Dragon (oz10655)
About this Plan
Red Dragon. Control line profile stunt model.
The Red Dragon and the Flying Tiger (oz10656) designs appeared together in the same article, in Aeromodeller July 1963.
Quote: "Semi-scale 40 inch stunters for 2.5 - 3.5 cc. Red Dragon & Flying Tiger, by HC Quek.
HERE'S A PAIR OF stunt control-liners that have very attractive semi-scale lines, can be built quickly, will give every satisfaction as far as aerobatics are concerned and which can be flown jointly in the same circle in mock combat. The Flying Tiger has been around for almost eight years in various forms, no less than seven developed types having been made to date and all of them exhibiting similar flying characteristics. They have been popular amongst Mr Quek's friends, are well known in their Singapore field of origin and we are sure, will be popular newcomers to Aeromodeller Plans Service. They are each similar in size and general construction.
They differ widely in their profile appearance, being based upon the Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero-Sen and the Curtiss P-40 Tomahawk - which were, of course, old adversaries during the Chinese/Japanese war around 1939/40. Mr Quek's decoration simply shrieks for use on all models and we look forward to seeing hosts of them around gaily (and accurately) painted at the rallies this coming season.
Carefully constructed, Flying Tiger and Red Dragon will take a fair amount of hard knocks and in any case, the amount of repairs required amounts to very little even in the most severe crashes..."

* 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.
