That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsJust a tiny point: the designer was Louis B Heath. The plan was re-drawn by Albert E Hatfull in about 1950 to include the new plastic prop., wheels and nose button. The version you show is yet another re-draw from a later period.

Just flew my Achilles electric conversion from the plans on Outerzone [pic 007]. Flew a darn sight better than one I built 50 years ago! Guts from a broken toy. Great site! On to the next one. Thanks!

Some photos of my KK Achilles built from Outerzone plans [pics 008-011]. A superb flyer with 8” plastic prop, 2 strands (single loop) of 1/4” x 14” tan super sport - 450 turns max.

* 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.
