About this Plan

Grumman F7F Tigercat - Scale twin fighter for control line. From June 1957 American Modeler.

Quote: - "Long a favourite with scale fans, the Tigercat has been used with increasing success in the Navy Carrier event. Aerodynamically clean, moderately simple (as twin-engine jobs go) and devoid of 'frills' the F7F is a natural Carrier job. While not a beginner's project by any means, it is not unduly complicated. For the slightly advanced model-builder it is a worthwhile project. Due to a fair number of parts that are cut from heavy sheet balsa, a jig-saw is a must..."

Update 21/07/2017: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to Bernd57. This is an old Uncle Willies plan, so scaling may be slightly off, but it looks close at 44-1/2in wingspan (flat).

* 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.
