Snow White (oz3314)
About this Plan
Snow White. Here is Joe Raspante's Snow White from 1938, redrawn as the old timer of the month in Model Builder magazine issue 08-82.
Quote: "Snow White was simply a very beautiful gas model, designed and built by Joe Raspante in 1937-1938, which went on to win many beauty contests, where flying ability was also an important factor. Its beauty has remained timeless, and down through the years it has been considered as something very special..."

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

Kevin is too modest. He and his dad Gary Sherman built the Snow White. They entered it in the Concours at either the 2013 or 2015 SAM Champs at Boulder City--and won!
Rich Minnick of Northern California took a year to build a Snow White--and won the 2011 SAM Champs Concours.
Still concours voters can get Snow White fatigue. A modeler from Florida came out to the 2017 SAM Champs with another Snow White. He was an immaculate builder and had done a great job on his Snow White. But it did not win the concoiurs that year--a rather odd looking Italian job took the prize.

When looking at the plans, there is a picture of the article first page, it will not come up when the plan is downloaded. Do you have the article? there is a question being asked about the CG location.

The entire August 1982 issue of MB can be found online, hosted by a certain site, "Bookcase" in nature. The lengthy article can be extracted from that. Not sure if the CG location is mentioned.

* 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.
