About this Plan

Cometa. Rubber duration model. Wingspan 60 cm.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Dear Steve & Mary - 'COMETA', former Aerobras kit from 1943, designed by L. Giraldelli in 01/10/1943 for Casa Aerobras of São Paulo. The model has a wingspan of 60 cm, a fuselage length of 45 cm and target weight of 48 grams. This model belongs to "Class B" from its time.

The excellent plan here presented is courtesy & kindness from Mr Omar Grasetti, who remade it in December 2017 in a great quality model plan.

This little plane is known by its excellent flying capabilities. Here we have very nice video links if you want: Cometa Aerobras e Cometa P-30
Best wishes, Carlo"


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

One of the best rubber band powered model airplanes ever designed. Missing Casa Aerobras, eternal heritage of national model aircraft. BRAZIL !!!

* 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.
