About this Plan

Interstate Cadet. Rubber scale model.

Here's Sydney Struhl's Interstate Cadet from the November 1942 Flying Aces.

Update 29/04/2014: Replaced this plan with clearer copy on one sheet, thanks to Planeman.

Quote: "Hello Steve, Attached is another one of the old magazine plans offered as cut up among multiple pages where things don't match well when reassembled. It your Interstate Cadet by Sidney Struhl. I have re-assembled it into a buildable plan and fixed the matching problems. It was necessary to rearrange a few things to get a compact plan, however otherwise it is as Sidney drew it. It now has the entire wing, entire stab, and the rudder is now in one piece. The fuselage is also now in one piece and the 'half' top view has been converted into a 'full' top view so one can easily cut out the proper size pieces."

Supplementary file notes

Alternate version. Original scan. Note this is not a fullsize plan, this is a scan of the magazine pages inc drawings, as originally printed.

    ScaleType: This (oz5243) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
