About this Plan

Inflammable. Free flight rubber model, also with IC powered option shown.

Quote: "Hi Steve. I recently acquired Photoshop and have started the long, exhausting climb up the learning curve. Among the first things I tried were your most excellent tutorials on cleaning up plans. Very clear, easy to follow, and instructive - thank you for those. The first victim of my efforts was a little-known model by the unlikely name of 'Inflammable', which I came across in the July 1960 issue of Flying Models. It seems that the name came about as the result of an incident involving a soldering iron and the dope-finished airframe. It must take real talent to reduce a rubber model to a small pile of ashes and a blob of molten rubber! But that model struck me as very pretty and a little different from the usual rubber powered style, in all the right ways. It's one of those rare models that just 'looks right' and as we all know, if it looks right it will very probably fly right. The plan does show an option for a small glow motor, and to me it seems perfect for electric RC. As soon as I clear my board of some of the dozen or so models I already have in various stages of completion, I'll be building a 150% (54in span) version."

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

* 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.
