Wow, I built one of these when I was a kid and that was almost 60 years ago! Didn't know it was still in production only 20 years back.

Little Toot was my first ever glow powered model, built from the Carl Goldberg kit when I was a kid in the mid sixties. It was doped blue and white and powered by a Cox Babe Bee .049. Like so many first models in those days, its one and only flight consisted of a graceful wingover followed by a less than graceful impact with mother earth. Little Toot would never fly again, but the Babe Bee went on to power many other models, until it was lost in a FF flyaway.
Thanks to Outerzone plans, I was able to build a new Little Toot recently - same colour scheme, but this time with a Cox Black Widow .049 up front [pic 007]. Note the needle valve extension which passes through a hole in the top wing. The cabane strut arrangement is a weak point, and has broken loose several times. An alternate arrangement using music wire and stronger attachment points might be a worthwhile deviation from the original design. The model is an excellent flyer as seen in the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2AQbcSS7Sc

* 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.
