About this Plan

36in Floats - 36in float length, ideal for 48in fuselage.

Quote: "Float installation shown is well tested, practical, rugged and easily dis-assembled at any time. Floats are adjustable for take-off trim... Floats should be 70% to 75% of fuselage length. Shorter floats are usually not adequate... When you think you have enough dope on your floats - add another five coats."

by Don McGovern - from 'Workshop Manual for model plane builders'. It's a collection of article and plans edited on Flying Models from 1954 t0 1963 circa. Surely it appears in someone years Flying Model. regards,

* 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.
