About this Plan

Rearwin Speedster. Peanut scale rubber model.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hello, I’ve been perusing your site, and re-living a bit of my youth, and being tempted to start some free flight models like I did so many years ago. RecentlyI was helping to clean some of my parents basement and embarrassingly found many of my abandoned models and model aircraft plans that I aspired to build but left in various states.
After looking through your plans, I focused on the designer Walt Mooney whom I believe you are missing a couple of his designs. I’ve scanned the ones I could not locate on your site at 600 dpi..."

First appeared in FAAC Flying Aces Newsletter n.54 1977, no article inside. Many thanks to Pit for confirmation.

    ScaleType: This (oz14095) 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/Rearwin_Speedster
    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.

I see that what tells us air modelers / aeromodellers apart from the Homo Sapiens Communis is the nature of the skeletons we keep in our closets.
Thanks Geoff, keep'em coming :-)

Ah yes! As Miguel said, skeletons in the closet. Here is my skeleton Rearwin Speedster [main pic] from 35-40 years ago. This was from Walt's "Bag of Peanuts" series. I think it was #6 B.O.Ps. in the series which were printed in Pistachio size wingspan. I drag it out of the closet every so often and wonder where all my skills and dexterity have gone since I couldn't begin to attempt this model today. However, back 40 years ago a couple of hand fulls of salty snacks and 6 or 8 cans of adult beverages would set me off in 4 different directions at once and there wasn't anything I wouldn't do. I think that was the case with this pistachio Speedster.

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.
