About this Plan

The 29er - Free flight rubber (non-scale) model.

Quote: "Hi Steve - Here is Paul McIlrath's 29'er from Sig Air Modeler magazine issue July-August 1967. The two page build article and a half size 'before cleaning' page is included. This was the last issue of this excellent, short lived (only a year) magazine. A great illustration of the 29'er was featured on the cover, as shown."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote from article text: - "The 29er was designed especially for good flying and realistic appearance. It is easily adjusted for long, high flights indoors and out. You don't have to be an expert builder to get flights of 25 or 30 seconds, and if you're a contest genius you should aim at flights several times that long. Although it is not a scale model, the 29er looks so realistic that even experienced modelers often ask whether it's a Heath, or a Fairchild, or some other sport parasol of the 1920s..."

* 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.
