Scotch Monoped (oz3634)
About this Plan
Scotch Monoped. Free flight rubber model. Scotty Mayors' Scotch Monoped, the old timer of the month, from Model Builder issue 07-85.
Quote: "OLD TIMER Model of the Month. The Scotch Monoped. Designed by Scotty Mayors. Drawn by Al Novotnik. Text by Bill Northrop.
'Scotty' Mayors had a way of turning out unusual and different looking models. The two for which he is remembered the most were the Kiltie Gull Biplane (oz2763) and this month's O/T feature, the Scotch Monoped. The Kiltie Gull appeared in the February 1939 issue of Flying Aces, and the Monoped was in the December 1939 issue, along with Falcons of the Flame by Donald Keyhoe; Ye Ould Emerald Oil, another Phineas Pinkham adventure by Joe Archibald; and Wings of the King, a Crash Carringer 'modern' air story by Arch Whitehouse. You could say that Flying Aces magazine was half pulp and half balsa!
The 26-inch span Monoped really needs no special building instructions for the scratch modeler. As usual, balance point was never discussed in those days. All of the flight trimming was covered in one sentence: Warping the flap at the trailing edge can be used to affect the glide somewhat."

* 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.
