About this Plan

Changi - free flight gas cabin model. Sportster for .75 to 1cc motors.

Quote: - "AEROMODELLERS IN THE Royal Air Force will recognise from the title of this model that it has Far East connections. The model was built when its designer was stationed out at Changi in Singapore, where model flying conditions are ideal, even though the humidity tends to wreck the absorbent balsa structure. Changi is a model in the old traditional sports style and for this reason we are sure it will be Very popular for those who like to incorporate pleasant appearance in the form of elliptical surfaces and a large expanse of transparent cockpit windows.

* 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.
