Gee Bee R-1 Super Sportster (oz11883)
About this Plan
Gee Bee R-1 Super Sportster. Radio control scale model. Wingspan 75 in.
Scale is 1/4.
Note this plan is derived from the scan posted by Marcdeklerk on AF site (see datafile) but this version here has been cleaned up to remove the background noise. The file size is now smaller, and it's much easier to read. Also the missing edges of some parts cropped at the edges of the AF scan (rib A on sheet #3, R2 and F1-S on sheet #4) have been redrawn.
Note there is a good build thread by John Boren at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3018148-Henry-Haffke-1-4-Scale-Gee-Bee-R-1-Build which has some excellent photos of the model under construction and detailed notes.
Note the above thread in turn links to a free download of a CAD re-designed wing plan, also by John Boren, available at http://johnboren.com/html/gee_bee_r1.html
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz11883) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gee_Bee_Model_R
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.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
