About this Plan

Howard DGA-8 - Scale model. An Earl Stahl design, here redrawn and updated by Hurst Bowers for Flyline Models. For the earlier plan, see Howard DG-1 (oz9295)

Quote: "Earl Stahl's Howard DGA-8. Rubber powered scale - 24in wingspan, 16.75in length. Designed by Earl Stahl and published in the August 1942 issue of MODEL AIRPLANE NEWS. This kit is produced with permission of the designer and publisher. Also suitable for CO2 powerplants"

"Flyline models have taken the liberty to make minor changes and updates in plan to include CO2 power option and to show more details which will be helpful to builders who wish to enter scale competition."

Update 05/10/2017: Added full printwood scans, thanks to Rob.

* 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.
