About this Plan

1938 Cub Sport (Taylor Cub). Dime scale rubber model.

Quote: "...from the Jan/Feb 1999 Flying Aces Club News. issue 185-111 ...plans below were supplied by Dave Stott. The newsletter calls them old time kit plans, but they sure look like dime scale plans to me. I should think they would have been billed as such except that Dave apparently knew what price they sold for. Still seems to me that they really are what's meant by dime scale... the 17 inch 1938 Cub Sport by Ott, Flying Scale Model no. 1703. Pretty simple. You'll have to figure out the strut lengths yourself. The marking scheme looks a bit odd, but there really is a full scale plane with a rubber band painted on it like that. Unfortunately, I think it's a Champ."

Update 15/11/2014: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy thanks to Swarthog. This looks to be the actual plan as supplied in the Joe Ott kit, model # 1703, and includes printwood plus a scan showing some box art.


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

    ScaleType: This (oz4201) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_Cub
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
