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

User commentsI am building a old Sterling Flying X Fool kit, but was missing the plans. I got them from your site, but it's only a part template sheet and the wing plans. Do you have the fuselage sections??

This is all we have. In many cases, kit plans didn't show drawings of the ready-made parts that came in the box. Perhaps that was the case here. Can anyone shed any light on this?

I found another photo of the orange one in 1970 when it was nearly new [more pics 005]. Then with a McCoy .35.

Hello guys take care, During this quarantine I have had time for those kits that have been home for years and were ignored, the coronavirus has caused them to come out of their hiding place and mount... but for now they still cannot fly [main pic, 012-017]. Take good care and be patient, all this will pass.

* 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.
