About this Plan

Hughes H-1 Racer - Scale control line model.

Quote: - "Hughes H-1 Racer, famous old racer from the early thirties reproduced in accurate scale for control line - sleek enough for good Proto Speed our model is built to the scale of one-and-three-quarters inch to the foot, the same csale as used for our 'Howard Ike' CL model which appeared in the 1962 model annual. This scale produces a man-sized airplane which is a joy to fly. We installed a J Roberts control system..."

* 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.
