Golden Eagle C-5 (oz11384)
About this Plan
Golden Eagle C-5. Rubber scale parasol model.
Quote: "The Golden Eagle Monoplane, by Dave Stott.
This snazzy lookin' sky cruiser was designed by Mark M Campbell and built by the RO Bone Company of Inglewood Ca, back in 1929. Just in time for the stock market crash to spin it in, alas!
Powered by a 60 HP Velie, this two-placer spanned 30 feet plus 6 inches of Clark Y wing. Length was 21 feet.
According to Aero Digest, this crate had wings finished in silver or gold while the fuselage and tail would be finished in any color desired. We can only wonder if the stabilizer was finished as was the wing, or was that done the same as the fuselage? Probably as the wing we'd bet. The photo published in Aero Digest (registration X-10071) seems to have been colored as descibed on the model plan. At least it seems more appropriate for X-10071.
Many of you former notchers will notice this crate has proportions for tough competition like a Miss America winner. Sure it will take a little time to build up a swell looking dummy Velie engine, but isn't that why you are a scale modeler?"

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
