About this Plan

Jap Slapper. Free flight power model. For class B motors .20-.29 power. Wartime austerity design, uses cardboard, basswood etc.

Quote: "War, with its tremendous development in aviation, has also brought important changes in design and construction oi model airplanes. This new Megow 'Jap-Slapper' gas model is in every way a product of foday. Entirely new in design, it features Megow's new 'Victory Construction' with interlocking plywood formers and fully gusseted joints a construction of great strength, yet light as balsawood, and using regular model cement.

Megow's 'Jap-Slapper' embodies revolutionary ideas in model building, gained from real aircraft construction. It is specially designed for contest work, and not only meets all the problems of the model builder today, but gives him every opportunity to establish sensational new records.

The wingspan is 42 inches, wing area 300 square inches, and wing loading capacity 9-1/2 ounces per square foot. Overall length is 32 inches. It is a class B model, made for motors of .20 to .29 displacement, and with a ready-to-fly weight of only 20 ounces."

* 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.
