About this Plan

Piper Cub Coupe. Free flight scale model.

Quote: "Greetings from the wild west! I cleaned up some recent postings on the RC Groups.com 'vintage and old time plans forum'. I then created PDF files just for you. I am concerned that you don't yet have every model airplane plane plan ever printed... Piper J5 Cub Coup [40 in.]_Schroder_Eagle Model Co. Plan was clean but probably scanned without being flattened, so it was a bit of a chore to adjust for wrinkles and distortions on the fold lines. Instruction area had especially bad text, but I could read it. I restored the text and rebuilt instructions with new border lines and with a guess for what the original print layout would have looked like. Printwood part numbers were hard to read but a good scan job. I prefer to scan in color to make it easier to separate inked lines from wood grain. Oh, well. I didn't try to research the correct names using the plan. Pay attention to the balsa thickness, not everything is 1/16 inch!"

Supplementary file notes

Printwood formers.

    ScaleType: This (oz5246) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piper_J-4
    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.
