About this Plan

Moss Trooper - This is a (non-scale) 35 inch low wing sports free flight for up to 1cc. From May 1968 Aeromodeller.

Quote: - "Before we begin, let's explain the name. A Moss Trooper is defined in a dictionary as a Freebooter of the Scottish Border. This model was designed and built to a deliberate specification as follows: 1, a reasonably easy model and fairly quick to build 2. a semi-scale model with realistic looks 3. and by utilising the minimum of balsa wood varieties, the cost could be kept down, therefore the minimum of waste wood was left over. The most accusrate way to describe this model is to say it is a cross between a scale Grumman Wildcat, a Garland Linnet, a Cessna 172 and a Percival Provost trainer... "

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.
