About this Plan

Hornet. Norm Rosenstock's 1/2 A Texaco version for RC of the Sal Taibi FF Hornet design, from Model Builder magazine issue 11-90. Span 44in, Area 350sqin, Weight 19.5oz.

Quote: "What model to build was the question. While looking through some old magazines one day I spied an article by Sal Taibi that caught my interest. It was about his Forster .99 powered 'Hornet'. I remember back in 1939-40 seeing him fly that model and it was spectacular. Well, that settled it. I scaled it down for the 1/2A Texaco event ...this model has a 44-inch span and has 350 square inches of wing area. According to the SAM rules it must weigh at least 19-1/2 ounces, and be powered by a reed-valve .049 Cox engine".

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.
