Miss America (oz5645)
About this Plan
Miss America. Free flight gas model. The Scientific 'Miss America' kit, first published in 1936.
This here is a later faithfully redrawn plan, drafted by Joe Wagner in 1964.
Quote: "Misc Draftsman's notes regarding this plan.
1. Except as noted below, this plan is an exact reconstruction of the original Scientific 'Miss America' kit design of 1936. Data sources were as follows:
(A) Pieces of original plan - about 1/3 of drawing intact.
(B) Frank Ziac's 1937 Yearbook.
(C) 1937 Scientific catalogue.
(D) July 1936 issue, MAN (P29).
(E) Personal interview with Fraink Zaic (the original designer) July 1964.
(F) Personal correspondence with John Frisoli of Scientific.
2. Five months of research have gone into this plan; it is as authentic as it can be made, bearing in mind that a complete copy of the original plan is not available, and that the primary purpose is to provide you with a drawing from which a practical flying model can be made. No changes have been made which will alter the size, shape or appearance of the model in any way.
3. Revision to the engine mounting system has been made, the original motor mounts were very flimsy..."

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.
