I was rebuilding my SWAT nostalgia gas model and thought I would take a quick look at the article on your website, but you don't have it. So, I dug through my old MAN issues and scanned it in for you [supplementary file]. This is a very popular nostalgia gas model here in North America. People build them in all sizes up to about 800 sq. in. It's interesting reading the article again; his trimming setup is pretty much the way many people trim their modern fixed surface FF gas models. He doesn't say where the CG is, but it should be 100 percent, right on the trailing edge of the wing.

* 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.
