About this Plan

Frostbite - Don McGovern design was published in the February 1953 issue of Flying Models. Minimum engine size is .29 and max is .60 glow. Wheels are optional and the wing chord looks to be almost a foot. This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.

* 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.
