Square Footer (oz11662)
About this Plan
Square Footer. 020 old timer replica. A reduced scale version of the classic Foote Westerner.
The original Foote Westerner (oz11661) first appeared in Air Trails, 1943 as an 84 inch span free flight model. This here is a later reduced size version, for 1/2A power.
Scan from DBHL.
Note this scan is quite hard to read in some places, and the title block is pretty much illegible. If anyone out there can confirm the designer and date for this one - or indeed has a clearer scan - that would be great, thanks. Steve.

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

User commentsThis is not actually a 1/2A model; it is an .020 Replica, a model specifically designed for the Cox TD .020. Going back almost to the beginning of SAM Oldtimer flying here in North America, the class was for replicas of pre-1942 models scaled down for the TD 020. The "square Footer" relates to the name of the full size model and the wing area - 144 sq inches. This class continues to be among the most popular oldtimer events and this is a very competitive design for that event. Thanks for publishing it!

Thanks Simon, I have removed the mention of 1/2A, now.

* 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.
