Compact - 30in span beginners FF rubber model. From Model Aircraft, May 1961.


Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction


User comments

The dihedral breaks as shown on the plans begin at different points on each side of the wing. One side shows the dihedral beginning at the 7th rib in from the tip and the other shows it beginning 6 ribs in. Examining the attached photo suggests that the 6th rib in is the correct place to begin the dihedral. I built the ship accordingly and I can report it flies very well.

* 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.
