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

As there has recently been added the Dick Steele Rookie RC plan to your list, I looked for the Rookie Trainer plans and it did not have a photo. I have a number of these models, attached a photo for your site [main pic]. From Melbourne,

* 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.
