About this Plan

Lockheed Neptune - scale control line twin model of the dual power (jet assisted) Maritime patrol and ASW aircraft. April 1961 Aeromodeller.

Quote: - "With such a record of service, and its popularity as a scale subject, we could not resist the inclusion of the Neptune in its latest form, the P2V-7, in our plans range. This has bulged hood 'Stinger Tail' which holds the anti-submarine magnetic airbourne detection (MAD) gear and belly radome for forward detection. Also two Westinghouse J34 turbojet engines in wing mounting pods... Maurice Bodey, already well known APS designer for his Gannet (oz914), Viscount (oz3716), Shackleton (oz1200), and DC3 Dakota (oz3744), was specially commisioned to design this model Neptune, and has produced a fine example for two 1cc engines..."

Update 20/12/2016: added article, thanks to RFJ.

* 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.
