About this Plan

Martin Baker MB3. Control line sport-scale model, for 2.5 cc engines.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Dear Steve, Here is another one which I picked up when visiting a girlfriend in Switzerland in 1968. I always wanted to make a free flight MB3 and since have but I’m afraid not from these not particularly good drawings. To make it more scale like the tail fin needs to be reshaped but interestingly they didn’t fall for the doctored photographs issued by Martin Baker showing a bubble hood which in fact never happened. More to follow... Kind regards, Richard"

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 (oz13492) 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.

Looks more like a control line model than free flight. Look at the fuselage side view of the plan. The MB3 is a favourite of mine, in spite of its history.

* 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.
