About this Plan

Scrapper. Control line combat model.

Quote: "Here is a full-size PDF format plan I worked up for the "Scrapper", a 1959 Nationals winning 36 in span control line combat model designed by James Cowart and published in the August 1960 issue of American Modeler. The Scrapper was subsequently kitted by Ambroid. I built and flew several Ambroid Scrappers back in the 1960s, so this design has particular nostalgic appeal to me. A sincere thanks to Carlo (stg61abc) for providing the high resolution scan of the magazine plan I used to generate this PDF. I employed the 24in scale from the plan as the scaling metric."


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

* 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.
