About this Plan

G.E. Cabinette. Free flight gas model. Originally from MAN 1942, this version of the GE Cabinette is a later re-drawn (and amended) plan from 1964, by Joe Wagner.

Quote: "Drawing corrected, revised and drawn full-size 16 May 1964 by Joe Wagner AMA 835.

Those who have access to the June 1942 issue of 'Model Airplane News' or 'Air Age Gas Models' will note several major differences between this drawing and Ehling's small-scale plans. There are 3 main reasons for these differences:

(1) The Ehling plans contain serious errors;
(2) The model shown in the plans is different from the model shown in the photos; and
(3) the design as shown in Ehling's plans contains several weak points and undefined features.

The purpose of this drawing is not to merely scale up the faulty original plan, but to provide an accurate full-size drawing of the original model, without weak spots in its structure. Programmetric methods provided a means of doing this; a model built from this plan will look precisely like Ehling's original model as shown in the MAN photos, and will be a fine flier. Tabulated below are the main points of difference between this plan and Ehlings..."

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.
