About this Plan

Kit plan No.3206 - a rubber powered free flight scale model of the Piper Cub (?).

[Edit 24/05/2017: This scan is almost an exact duplicate (very minor differences, like added spats) of the Comet Piper Cub Coupe plan ref:E6 (oz6277) so I guess the title block has been edited later, in error. So most likely this is actually a Piper Cub Coupe plan from Comet (thanks Frank, Stuart), that has been later edited and titled incorrectly. Curious that the printwood all says 'Cub' and not 'Cub Coupe' on it though. Does the ref# 3206 mean anything useful? Ah, ok yes the Comet ref #3206 is for the "Piper Cub" kit, which has an illustration of a J-3 Cub on the box (?) ...so this plan scan here is deeply unreliable, on that basis.]

[Edit 24/05/2017: It gets weirder. I think this is a genuine Comet plan (see pic of kit box, parts and plan here https://picclick.com/Comet-3206-25...) and I think the other one is, too. The part I can't explain is why this one is titled "Cub" and not "Cub Coupe".


Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

It is a Piper J-4 Coupe. Two place side by side trainer. note the doors, there was one on each side of the aircraft.

* 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.
