Thanks for publishing plans for the Best-By-Test Altimeter. It is a plane I have always wanted to build. I recently completed two other Best-By-Test designs, the Stratometer and the Sensatherm. I built both of these from plans I purchased from Ed Schlosser back in the 1960s. I have attached an ad from Model Airplane News from the '40s, which includes the Altimeter [more pics 004].

* 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.
