About this Plan

Moth - Flying Aces Moth - Free flight rubber cabin model. This is a very slightly modified modern version of the 1937 Flying Aces Moth plan.

Quote: - "As an introductory model for anyone wanting a small, simple vintage type, the Moth is ideal. As the editor's note said about the original design - 'thousands of models have been built, throughout the United States and Canada, and it has been responsible in getting many aero enthusiasts to become model builders'. I have included in this design all of the original features but have added some small changes to ease construction for the beginner. Purists may ignore these..."

Update 20/03/2017: Added article pages, thanks to Algy2.

* 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.
