About this Plan

California Champ. Rubber contest model.

The original California Champ (oz10475) was first published in Air Trails. This here is a later redrawn plan from MB, 1976.

Quote: "1939 West Coast Wakefield Winner designed by Tom Engleman. Published in the Sept 1940 Air Trails. Drawn for Model Builder by SA Patterson. Very interesting design. Has a single bladed folding propeller and a retractable single-wheel landing gear, not to mention the anhedral horizontal stabilizer. Wingspan 48.75 inch."


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

* 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.
