Quote: "Steve and Mary, Good day from sunny Pennsylvania! Please see attached files for your use and distribution. I was fortunate to find this as a short kit on Ebay. Finally was able to scan the plans into a PDF and send them off to you. The original copy is a bit 'light' so the copy exhibits the same.
The attached picture [main pic] is of the original builder John Chapis that I found on RC Groups. It appears the plans date back to 1992 and was somewhat popular here on the East Coast. An interesting build that I think others will enjoy.
I have this on the building board now and will send completion pics when done. Thank you for your time and efforts on behalf of modellers everywhere. Take care and stay safe! Regards, Rich"
Update 28/10/2021: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to JohnChapis.
Quote: "Please find attached original copy of plan. Have several others to submit once I can get photos scanned. JC"

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