Hi Steve, Many thanks for the New AM Cabin duration plan - I've been looking for this one for a long time! Maybe I'm not seeing this right but there's formers F1 - F3 on the plan but the other fuselage formers appear to be missing. Any chance you can put a call out to get these? Thanks,

Attached is a photo of my AM Cabin Duration in uncovered state, built a year or so ago from original free plans in 1952 Aeromodeller [model photo]. Almost the same as article photo but in colour! Model is now clothed but as yet unflown.

hi steve, i built the am duration in 1976 , from the original 50s plan. it performed admirably, and was flown to death over the long hot summer we had that year. it flew superbly right off the board. after building many keilcraft and veron dime scale models that never really got off the ground so to speak this was a real eye opener. i might just have to build it again. all the best and thanks again,

I built this in about 1962 and it was great. Now going to build another !!

* 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.
