About this Plan

Baby Dart. Rubber sport model.

Quote: "Baby Dart, by Fred Reese. Perhaps this is what happens when you move into a motor home - our Roving Reporter has even reduced the AMA Dart to a more compact size. Complete project on these two pages.

(1) Cut all of the wood pieces to size. Make sure ends are properly beveled. Photo is of preliminary drawing.

(2) Lay waxed paper or plastic film (Saran) and then tissue over the plan. Press out flat with hands and tape corners down.

(3) Glue down to the tissue (and together) all of the 1/16 square pieces that form the wing, stabilizer, and rudder.

(4) Cut out the wing, stab and rudder. Scissors are fine for this 'sob, since cutting with a razor could chop up plans.

(5) Glue stab and rudder to fuselage stick. Fuselage becomes bottom frame of rudder. Crack wing for 2" inch dihedral. Glue, and prop up while drying. When dry, glue to fuselage.

16) Finished Baby Dart [main pic] with Marlow 16:1 winder and 2mm Pirelli rubber from Plans & Things. Average flights over a minute."

* 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.
