About this Plan

Satin Doll - Rubber sport biplane model, with vintage styling.

Quote: - "Hi, This time we go to the April 1997 AEROMODELLER with the cover featuring DAVE PLATT holding his magnificent SATIN DOLL biplane. Plan to be found inside ...SATIN DOLL by the master Dave Platt. Satin Doll is a 42 inch span vintage style Biplane to fly at a Old Warden Vintage Weekend. Designed to look like a 1940s model Dave said the flight performance is far from shabby. When fully wound it easily exceeds two minutes. No scale on the plan but it has the wingspan given plus I think an inch scale on the bottom left corner. Interesting to note that Dave made two models. One covered in Tissue and one covered in Silk. Both weighed exactly the same."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction


User comments

Satin Doll appeared in Aeromodeller too [see article 2]. I'm always happy to see a famous champion modeller like D. Platt playing with simple rubber powered or free flight model planes.

* 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.
