About this Plan

Marsden 1937 Winner (AKA Champion Gas Model). Free flight gas model, for Brown Jr power.

Quote: "The winner of the Model Craftsman Trophy, emblematic of the Pacific Coast Gas Model Championship, here gives you the plans for building the plane that keeps him in the prize money..."

Quote: " it is scanned directly from my copy of the Sept 1937 the Model Craftsman... The Judson Marsden Championship gas Model. The Brown junior was the engine of choice for this 72in cabin model. It is a real lightweight with a nice airfoil. I consider this model to be among the very best published in Model Craftsman. This model shows up among SAM members from time to time still too.. Best Regards," Contributed by Jeff McCammant Story City Iowa.

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

Judson Marsden was my father, he loved designing model planes and continued to fly them until his death in 2004 … glad to see the plans for the Judson Marsden still getting attention :)

75in span is shown on plan. In SAM 2004 Gas Book (Gas List up to 1942), the title given to this model is Marsden 1937 Winner.

Ok, 75 inch span, also that's a better title than 'Champion Gas Model'. Done.

SAM has this model listed under three titles: “Marsden 1937 Winner”, “Pacific Coast Champion”, and “Champion, Pac. Coast”. AMA has it listed “Pacific Coast Champion”.

A kit is expected from BH Plans, I suspect the plans will be cleaned up and modifications shown for R/C-assist.
The reflex airfoil may not be the most efficient in the glide but it should have excellent pitch stability.

* 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.
