About this Plan

Bellanca Cruisemaster. Discontinued radio control scale model kit from Guillows, kit no 1502. For Cox .049 power and 2 channel RC. Prototype with all RC gear was 18.5 oz AUW. The kit included vacuum-formed plastic parts for the nose cowl, lower pan, windshield, spinner and the wing tips.

Quote: "An obscure kit by Guillows made in the 1980s. Rather strange structure. It is most unfortunate that these RC kits by Guillows never caught on sales. This Bellanca has been one of the most sought after plans, as far as I know. I plan to 'one fine day' build one. Greetings from Colombia and good luck to all fellow modellers worldwide."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 19/09/2012: Aded a further page (page 7: Bulkhead Layout Sheet) to this plan.

Quote: "These are the formers of the Guillows Bellanca Cruisemaster. I found this sheet lost in a big pile of papers from years gone by!"

Update 12/06/2020: Have unpacked this plan from the zipfile. This is now a 7-page pdf file.


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz3237) 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
    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.
