About this Plan

Parlor Midget. Indoor rubber sport model.

Quote: "Parlor Midget, by HA Thomas.

CEMENT soft balsa sheets edge to edge and trace full-size patterns. After trimming to outline, sand smoothly and thin the tips and trailing edges, rounding entering edges. Center line is scored, one half propped up and cemented, for dihedral. Later, add motor stick, lower skid and rudder.

Soft prop block is trimmed to outlines, carved and sanded. Check balance then add shaft (all wire parts bent from steel straight pins); cement thrust bearing and rear hook to body. Install prop with washer and one loop, 1/8 in flat T-56 rubber for a starter. Smooth glide may require nose ballast, slight warp of tips and tail."

* 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.
