Cessna 172 (oz3556)
About this Plan
Cessna 172. Control line model kit. Quote "This is one of a series of semi-scale models designed by Walter A. Musciano and kitted by Scientific Models in the United States owned by Mr. John Frisoli. Most of these models had carved balsa fuselages, one piece wing and all accessories except engine, paint and glue. They were designed for .049 engines made by OK Cub (Herkimer Tool and Model Works) but mostly for the fabulous Cox .020 and .049 engines. They flew nice but, naturally no stunts. Just round and round. These models however, did introduce several people to the hobby of aeromodelling. They were easy to build and the kit quality was very good indeed. No scale models, just a resemblance of a so called P-51 or Piper Comanche or other full size airplanes. They also shared many components like the landing gear, wheels, spinner etc. They were manufactured from 1950 to 1972. Then the Scientific company turned its efforts to make sailing ships static models like the Golden Hind, the Cutty Sark etc. Scientific closed down in the eighties."

* 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.
