About this Plan

Curtiss Wright Trainer. Free flight scale model for rubber power.

Quote: "This is Hurst Bowers' 28-7/8 in span plan for the Curtiss-Wright Trainer biplane from the early 1930s, likely the CW-12Q with Gipsy 4-cylinder inline engine. The scan is of an incomplete pencil dawing found among Hurst's effects after he passed away on 15 December, 2004. His design was likely for rubber-powered free-flight, but it looks suitable for electric or 1/2A power and RC conversion is certainly a possibility."

    ScaleType: This (oz11838) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.

* 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.
