About this Plan

Porterfield Zephyr - Rubber scale model.

Quote: "An 18-inch flying scale model of one of America's most popular sport planes. Just like its brother, our 18in Porterfield Zephyr is an excellent flier because of its efficient proportions. The parasol wing and large stabilizer area make it a very consistent flier, while the general outline makes it a very beautiful model to rest on your piano, radio or shelf."

* 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.
