Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction


User comments

The original former F3 is omitted from the PDF plan, and subsequent formers need re-numbering.

I built the blue and white Pushy Cat in the photo [more pics 004] twenty-odd years ago just because I had always liked the look of this classic Vic Smeed design. With a micro servo for rudder only control and an Irvine Mills 0.75 for power it is a gentle sport flyer, I still have it and intend to convert it, possibly with a new fuselage, to electric out runner power. It also inspired me to create a 5/8th size version for the KP01 geared electric unit (free-flight), this is seen in the other photo [more pics 005] and was subsequently published as a full size plan in Aeromodeller.

G'day Steve. Here is a pic of my Pushy Cat just after re-covering (I built it in 1989) [more pics 006]. Power is a Boddo Mills .75

* 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.
