About this Plan

Modelcraft Zero. Free flight duration model for 1/2A power.

Planfile includes building and flying instructions.

Quote: "Your new Zero is the latest thing in model airplanes, streamlined as the Atomic Age, and capable of utilizing all the power available from the 'super' half A engines, and of exceptional performance with any half A engine.

The Zero is a high thrustline super streamlined contest freeflight with a terrific climb and a thermal riding glide, and all this can be yours with a little effort and time spent correctly, so familiarize yourself with the plans and the parts of your Zero..."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 16/8/2023: Resized this plan to correct fullsize at 42 in wingspan, thanks to Simon Blake, Pit.

Update 16/8/2023: Added alternate drawing showing correct dimensions, thanks to Pit.

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

Matsuda I could read on your plan scan, but I needed help with Toshi.

By Toshi Matsuda, 1956 plan. It was selected for 2004 NFFS One-Design Gas Event.

Got it, have set designer now as Toshi Matsuda, thanks.

This should be 43 inch span, possibly a little larger. I have the original plan somewhere.
Regards, Simon
Simon Blake - 16/08/2023
Ah, yes, good point. I think 42 in span is correct, see Pit's alternate drawing. Ok, have fixed this now.

* 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.
