About this Plan

Piper Vagabond. Control line sport scale model. Wingspan 108 cm, for .15 to .19 engines.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Dear Steve & Mary; Wishing to the couple to be very well, with good health and great positive energy!


The Piper Vagabond was a scale kit from the 70 to 80' sold by the late Mobral Modelismo do Brasil model company, model with a wingspan of 108 cm and for engines on the .15 to .20 range

This plan was sent to me by a friend that is Alexandre Takeschi Ueno, an excellent and competent builder and Pilot from Florianópolis/SC, Brazil

This plan results from a ampliation of a reduced one found on an vintage Esporte Modelismo Magazine, so the size of the plan here presented has the same size of the original Mobral kit.

This same model is under construction by my friend Alexandre Ueno, as soon as I have images I will be forwarding them to you with pleasure

Thank you so much by the very important preservation work that you both do in this fantastic website that is Outerzone UK! My best wishes, Carlo"

    ScaleType: This (oz14559) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piper_PA-15_Vagabond
    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.

Attached Piper Vagabond photos [main pic, 005-008]. The yellow sample presented here is a very pretty Mobral Piper Vagabond built by a very competent modeller that is our friend ALEXANDRE TAKESHI UENO, model that was built from plans enlarged from an early magazine and use a OS FS 26 Surpass 4 stroke engine. The plan presented here isn't of high definition one but it's sufficient clear to build a model as the same way Alexandre did. The paint was made in a automotive enamel that was the "VOLKSWAGEN YELLOW SAFAR" FROM THE VW 1975 LINE, this resulted in a relly pretty work and also pretty model. By the way, Alexandre won the first place in "DESAFIO MOBRAL 2023 MEETING” in the Remote Scale Category with the Piper and also first place in Remote Combat Category with his MIG 15. Here we are all very proud with his deserved victory! All the best,

Hello Mary and Steve, Concerning the oz14559 plans, I bring to you some more pictures [pics 009-013] of an example built at early 60's what makes me think the kit was not from 1975, as per the text. These are the present pictures of the actual old model, with the very same nylon covering from that time, plus the modeler and wife busts at the controls and the local newspaper at the back. Hope you can use them, Best regards from 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.
