This appears to be a scaled-down copy of the Comet III by A.E. Brooks of the U.K. This was a 52" model for the 2.5cc Spitfire motor. The Australian rubber version has the wing placed a bit aft of the power model location, and the landing gear is different, but the distinctive tail feathers, fuselage profile and tip outline give it away. Thank you so much for putting this priceless resource together for those of us who love the smell of balsa dust and cellulose dope.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
