About this Plan

Elf Biplane. Free flight sport biplane cabin model.

Note this is a 1965 re-drawing of the original 1938 design, which probably never existed as a full-size printed plan.

Quote: "A Skystone plan. Elf Biplane. Designed by Frank Ehling, Jersey City N.J. Wingspan 39in, length 27.5in, empty wt 6oz. Drawn by Bill Kincheloe from an early Frank Zaic yearbook. Traced by Bill Thompson, 9/10-65. Original model 'showed signs of soarings' and 'has good glide'."

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

My model shown in the photos [main pic, 003,004] is from the Ben Buckle kit. It spans 60 ins but Ben himself says that his plan was scaled up from the original Frank Ehling 39 in wingspan plan (oz4724). Perfect evening flyer. Covered in the last available Solatex and Saito 40 powered. Vintage flying at its best.

* 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.
