About this Plan

DH.89a Dragon Rapide - Scale twin biplane. Cox .049 power shown. Aeromodeller Sep 1968.

Quote: - "Veteran modeller HJ Towner's control line replica: 7/8in equals 1ft scale for two .8 - .16cc engines diesel or glowplug. We thought it ought to be preserved as a model subject, and who better to do so than doyen of scale modelling in Great Britain..."

Update 13/12/2016: 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.
