About this Plan

Cessna C-34. By Paul Lindberg from Popular Aviation.

Quote: "This month's model, the Cessna C-34 cabin plane, like most high-wing monoplanes, is a fine flyer - stable and with good distance getting qualities. In appearance, it is all that the model builder could ask for as it preserves the trim keen outline of the full size ship.

As to the color scheme, I believe that the front cover drawing is the best guide to this part of the construction, for Mr Bollin has been very careful in picturing the exact tints of the original.

To prevent the parts from sticking on the accompanying plans when using them to build your model, place a wax paper over the plans, and thus prtotected, the plans can be used indefinitely. The plans are drawn to the scale of 3/4in = 1 foot.

The fuselage members are made with 1/16 square balsa, and all the parts are held securely in place on the plan by pins..."

    ScaleType: This (oz283) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cessna_Airmaster
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
