Here are some shots of oz2124, the Doc Matthews drawn 1/2A Frank Zaic Miss America [more pics 003-007]. I'll send more pictures when I get the windows glued in. Some of these are "in the bones" shots, prior to any electronics or covering. The others are shots of it completed, minus final gluing of empennage, and installation of windows. Once I get that done, I'll send some more pictures, and maybe even a link to a flight video. Thanks for such a great site. Cheers,

* 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.
