About this Plan

Miss Science. Free flight power cabin model.

The Frank Zaic Miss Science (oz1817) was first published in Sept 1939 Popular Science. This here is a later, re-drawn plan on one single large sheet at full size, and marked: "drawn especially for John Pond".

Note the scale bar printed on this plan fixes the wingspan at 76 in, so this is a little larger than the (72 in) 1939 original.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 19/08/2019: Replaced this plan now with a much clearer scan at higher resolution, thanks to Nestor.

Beautiful model. I built 3. They fly very well. I came second in the 2013 national in Argentina.

I recommend reinforcing wings by adding hard raft stringers up and down with vertical grain reinforcements and veneer fuselage to the vanishing edge, they can be guided as the Miss America is built. Greetings from Argentina and I congratulate you on the page of plans one of the best on the web.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
