About this Plan

Baby Buzzard. Simple rubber stick model.

From (reprinted in) Air Trails Classic Flying Models, Summer 1977. Originally published in AT, Feb 1940.

Quote: "Full size plans of a sturdy ROG. Seven or seventy, you can build and fly this in one evening."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 14/9/2022: Added alternate scan, thanks to Pit, from AT 1940, includes PP initials.

Update 15/9/2022: Have rescaled this plan to wingspan 16 in, taking the dimensioned 7 in propellor block as correct.

Supplementary file notes

Alternate scan.


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

That's another no-author plan, originally published in Air Trails Feb. 1940. "incidentally" at the time associated Editor was Bill Winter. On the plan can barely seen a PP logo that stand for Paul Plecan that inked the plan.

* 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.
