Thermal Magnet (oz201)
About this Plan
Thermal Magnet. Old time gas free flight model, originally from 1940 kit. This is a later redrawn plan in MB.
Quote: "Ray Heit, best known for his Scram design, was commissioned by Bay Ridge Model Airplane Co of Brooklyn NY to come up with a class C ship to add to its line of A and B models. Ray thus created the Thermal Magnet, having a six-foot span, tapered wing and a 9-1/2 ounce wing loading. Back in May 1939 the company offered a choice of Brown Model D, or a $5.00 cash voucher taking a first or second place in a majot gas-model meet using a Bay Ridge gas model."
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
