About this Plan
Playboy. Free flight rubber cabin model.

Update 20/04/2021: For an enlarged 150% version of the Playboy design at 30 in wingspan, see Knave (oz12968).
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsA couple of photos of my 150% KK Playboy with 30" wing span. Wonderful flyer, built Summer 2020. [note: have moved these pics over to the new page, see Knave (oz12968)]

In 1950-odd, Bill Dean tended to design his rubber models with insufficient fin area. My first Playboy was horribly unstable until I fitted a much larger fin, whereupon it flew beautifully. I could probably have achieved the same result by adding a couple of underfins to the tailplane, as Bill himself did to his famous Gypsy!

I'm building one now, it's not a Bill Dean design the plan states it was by Albert Hatfull

Um, is that right? I can’t see any designer credit on this plan. It looks very much like the style of a Bill Dean design, to me.

It's Bill Dean, as are the very similar Elf and Ace. I can't see a name on the plan, which is not original.

Got it, thanks. Setting Bill Dean as designer on this one, now.

Hi Steve, your plan is from Replikit, I have the original. Here is a photo with the Albert Hatfull logo on it [pics 007, 008], it does say drawn by, not designed by, not sure if it helps or confuses things. Cheers,

Hi Steve/Mary, as promised here are a couple of shots of my Playboy [main pic, 010, 011]. I built it to try out Eze Dope after a lot of heatshrink covered models, mixed results so I'll have to pick another plan for a second go :)

Thanks Mike. Ah, I see what you mean now about the Albert Hatfull logo on the older original KK plan. I guess that's him credited as the draughtsman, rather than as the deisgner - I think.

* 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.
