Last year I built the Sky Skooter. This year my choice fell on Vic Smeed's Courtesan [model photo & more pics 003-006]. I used an electric motor. The aircraft is now ready and has made the first flights and flies excellent. It is very sensitive on the rudder. The aircraft was built for a vintage plane event.

I built one of these in 2000, still got it although havnt flown it for about 3 years. Nice build, nice looking model, trimming was very easy, fill the Irvine Mills up, start up and let go! recommended

Have set the date on this one to Oct 1988, thanks to AaronKV, it seems it was published much later than the 50s. Can anyone send in a scan of the article? 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.
