About this Plan
Interstate L-6 Liaison. Rubber scale model.
Quote: "A Bay State Squadron Plan. FAC Simple Scale Interstate L-6 Liaison. Designed and drawn by Mike Nasissie 2/18. Wingspan 21 in. Length 13.75 in."
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 04/01/2021: Added cowl template, thanks to FS.
Quote: "Mary, Here's the cowl for the Mike Nasisse Interstate L-6 Liason. Cut from index card and attached with a glue stick. On mine, I attached the tissue with a glue stick before applying the cowl to the aircraft. Although, Mike's L-6 is fairly simple in design, a few touches like the cowl make it stand out towards realism."

ScaleType: This (oz12703) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_Cadet
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsWhat is the recommendation on servo/ controller kit and what is the biggest nitro/glow motor that will fit.. and can it be made out of wood ?

'Liaison' isn't the name of the aircraft ' the 'L' was the US prefix for all 'liaison' aircraft - L2 was the Taylorcraft (UK version was the Auster AOP), L4 was the Piper Cub and so on. The actual name was the 'Interstate Cadet'.

Fair point. I actually think the actual prototype name was 'Interstate L-6A Grasshopper'. But my opinion is not so interesting. We are just recording the facts here, as far as modelling history goes. So because designer Mike Nassise drew up this plan and he called this 'Liaison', that is what we will also be using here, too. I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining our approach here.

While building my L-6 from the plan, I looked more closely at the photos and noticed that airplane had diagonal uprights at the nose and tail as well as a couple of stringers on the side. I’ll be using the photos to guide me as these parts are not on the plan. I’m still super excited about this model and can’t wait to see it in the air! Thank you for posting this plan. Regards, Javman.

* 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.
