About this Plan

Mooney A-1. Rubber scale model.

Quote: "The Mooney A-1 was a four-place low-wing aircraft powered by a 100 hp Kinner radial engine. It was the first plane produced, in 1929, by brothers Al and Art Mooney's Mooney Aircraft Corp. It was similar to the Alexander Bullet, also designed by Al, but somewhat simplified to lower the cost. Despite their cost-reduction efforts, the Great Depression put an end to the company and the A-1.

This 28.8 inch span model was designed by Hurst Bowers and published in the March 1999 issue of MaxFax, the DC Maxecuters club newsletter. He designed it for free-flight with either rubber, electric, or CO2 power, but the cabin is roomy enough to accommodate ultralight RC gear, if one wanted a challenge."

  • NotFound | help

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new 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.
