About this Plan
Chloe - Free flight sports model for .5cc power. From Dec 57 Aeromodeller.
Quote: -"Here’s a model designed for confined quarters and easy transport. Wings are two-piece with realistic strut retaining, the largest component being the fuselage (approx 24 in), so it really is 'suitcase size'. Designer Ron Darr is an Australian modeller from Newcastle NSW, who has been living in London for the last year or so, and fully realises the problems of the travelling aeromodeller. We think he has done well to get such original lines in what is normally considered a played-out theme of high wing cabin sports design for small engines and are sure that Chloe will soon be achieving great popularity, particularly with modellers in the Services.
Make the basic fuselage keel outline over the plan from 1/8 in sq and 1/4 x 1/8 strip balsa, bend the 16 swg tailwheel wire to shape and fix in position, then cut out the half formers F4 - F9 (two of each are required) and cement in place on the basic fuselage. Add the 1/8 in sq strips which form the cabin outline and the1/4 x 1/8 strip tailplane seating.
Cut out the basic fuselage sides from 3/16 in sheet and fit nose doublers. When dry, add to fuselage, fit former F3 in place. Bend the undercarriage wire to shape and bind with strong linen thread to F4A and cement in position.
Cement F1, F2 and F2A together and fit in place. Add engine bearers, top cowl formers B and C and cover with 3/16 sheet. Build the removable cowling over plan from formers..."

* 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.
