About this Plan

1937 Arrow Sport V-8. Peanut scale rubber model.

Quote: "THE ARROW Sport V-8 was an unusual airplane when it was new, and is even more unusual now. It is one of very few production planes powered with an automobile engine, a Ford V-8, familiar to generations of hot rodders as the Ford flathead. Buyers were given a choice of models: the Master, with open cockpit; the Master Coupe, with closed cockpit; and the Deluxe Coupe. One real advantage for owner of the Arrow Sport V-8 concerned maintenance. Because of the Ford engine, a complete major engine overhaul cost only $55. There are quite a few model engines that cost more than that today!

The plane selected for our model is owned by a man in El Centro, California, who has owned the plane since it was new and has recorded just 800 flight hours in that time. NC 18018 is serial #31, and is a Master Coupe..."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz12951) 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
    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.

* 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.
