Korda 1939 Gas Model (oz11108)
About this Plan
Korda 1939 Gas Model. Free flight power model, for Brown Jr motor. Wingspan 55 in, wing area 448 sq in.
Quote: "Note this drawing intended not only for construction of the model, but also as a record of its condition when found after 42 years. Except for patches in the covering, the results of an active contest season 1939, where it was lost OOS and returned twice are shown. The original model was discovered in 1980 by Joe Elgin and is being restored by Matt Basta for the AMA Model Museum."

User commentsThe Korda 1939 Diamond is a wonderful flyer - I have a photo of mine on electric RC but am not sure how to submit it. Best regards from Central Iowa, USA, Jeff

I'm glad the Korda 1939 Gas Model was added to Outerzone - it is a very historical model and a great flyer. Mine was built from the same plan. Mine was a Complete A Project on RC Groups. I attach a couple pictures [model photo & more pics 003-005]. The best two pics were taken by Eric B. at Marshalltown Iowa USA field 2017.

* 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.
