Hello Steve and Mary! Here are some pics of the Band Boy by Vic Smeed that I built for the 2016 Complete a Project Build-off on RCGroups [more pics 003-006]. It just needs a bit of final adjustment. Flying is very relaxing, but it can also do simple aerobatics like loops, inverted flight etc. I modified the stabilizer to a simple plate profile and reduced the incidence of the wing to 2 degrees. Engine is an 1,5cc Enya with 60cc tank, which gives between 15 to 25 minutes of flying. Wing spars are 5x5 mm spruce with 5mm beech dihedral bridge between. Weight is 730g. Here is a link to a short clip of the second flight: Thank you both for the time and effort you put into the Outerzone site. Special thanks to Mary for supporting Steve :D Best regards from Germany,

* 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.
