About this Plan

Chilton DW1A - Scale model for control line. From American Modeler March/ April 1966.

Quote: - "Our model has been built to a scale of 1-3/4inches equals 1 foot. This gives a 42-3/4in wingspan and 34-1/4in fuselage. The model weighs 53 ounces when powered by a Roberts-operated, throttled, inverted K&B 35RC engine. The Roberts bellcrank also operates the 3-piece split landing flaps; an optional fuel shut-off system is tripped when full-down elevator is applied. The real airplane's configuration is ideal for control-line flying since its wheel position allows beautiful landings and taxi runs..."

* 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.
