About this Plan

Boston Aristocrat. Bostonian rubber design. Inspired by the General Aristrocrat.

Quote: "Background: First inspired by Ed Whitten, of New York, to inspire easy to build yet realistic indoor models, Bostonian rules included a 10 gram minimum weight provision, to preclude ulta-light 'ghost' models, later revised to 7 grams. Realism was encouraged with 'Charisma Points'. Walt Mooney, in California, liked the concept but he felt the weight was too low for beginners, and he concocted West Coast 14 gram minimum weight rules. They allowed use of average quality balsa, plastic propellors, and made the stronger models suitable for both indoor and outdoor flying. As we go to press, Ed Whitten may revert to 10 grams, and increase the Charisma Factor.

Perry Peterson's 'Massachusetts General' another Aristocrat-based Bostonian, appeared in the November 1989 Model Builder magazine."

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.
