Does anyone have a pic of the Cavalier model, maybe from a magazine ad? Would be nice to have a pic for this one.

Good afternoon Mary, I hope you and Steve are still doing ok. Some pictures attached of my just completed Skyleada Cavalier [main pic, 003-005]. Looking forward to flying this one. What a lovely little model, should be
perfect for my small meadow. Thanks for your hard work on our behalf. Very best regards,

This is an attractive model. It looks like the new drawing doesn't have the ribs, though the old drawing does. People should download both.
Also, and this is quibbling, the A-A with the line implies, at least in the drafting tradition I'm familiar with, a section, so I spent some time looking for the section drawing. Either I'm blind, or it isn't there.

According to this account in the KAPA Collector, the Cavalier must have been from 1947 at the earliest.

Got it. Have set this date to 1947 now. Many 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.
