About this Plan

Grumman FF-1. Rubber scale model of the American biplane carrier fighter.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi Mary & Steve, I hope this email finds you well. I've attached the drawings for a very early Guillow's kit of the Grumman FF-1, biplane fighter. It has a 24 in WS, and was a good flyer. I then enlarged the plans to a 48 in WS and converted it to RC 4-channels. It had the landing gear retracted as I could not design a lightweight retractable gear system. This also, proved to be a good flyer. Just watch the CG, it's critical for a successful model... Keep up the great job that both of you do. The pleasure you give me cannot be quantified. Best to you both,"

    ScaleType: This (oz13394) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_FF
    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.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
