About this Plan
Mercury Crusader. Control line stunt model. Wingspan 56 in, wing area 628 sq in, for .35 engines.
Note the original Mercury Crusader was designed by Bill Morley. This here is a later plan, drawn up by Tony Johnson.
Quote: "Hi Mary/Steve, attached are plans I did for myself to build an accurate Mercury Crusader. The information used came from the four models I built for myself since 1965, the plan sold by Tom Dixon and an anonymous drawing of the kit component parts. I enclose also the original kit instructions and my own drawings of the airfoil sections incorporating construction tabs. It is intended my drawing is used in conjunction with the original kit info and although I have incorporated several mods to the front of the fuselage and show a built up wing trailing edge it remains Classic legal."

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

Don't have that to hand right now, no. Maybe TonyJ will see this and we can put you in touch that way.

* 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.
