Quote: "Hi, you might be able to use this so here goes. I found this plan in Aeromodeller Annual 1971-72 and decided to draw it up full size. Featured in Model Airplane News May 1969. Designed by Paul H Schaff Jr. Scaled and drawn here by Eric Stephen (me). A few years ago Ronnie Tribe of control line scale fame scaled my plan up again and put an OS 25 LA in the nose. See https://control-line-flying.com/boeing-727-semi-scale/. He had some problems with balance and bellcrank positions which he never really sorted out. Maybe it was just too ambitious scaling it up and making it a tractor type model. Regards, Eric Stephen"

That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz13241) 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/Boeing_727
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.

This was my build being flown by Dan Berry at SMALL in Little Rock. I had six 1" wheels so I decided to build it.

* 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.
