I believe this plan was from the Parker Planes commercial kit. The copy of the MAN plan I have has some minor differences on it, different wing tips, landing gear, and no logo/copyright info. I might be wrong, just a thought.

Here I am attaching the article for the Pelican scanned from a Dec/1982 Flying Models magazine issue [see suppl. file]. Believe me, in 1983 I enlarged this plan using the 4th pic on page 34 and my father's drawing board with the parallel ruler over those dedicated expensive architect drawing paper for a latter heliographic copy. For sure it was not precise since the pic was taking from a certain angle apart from being ridiculously small to do it, but it flew great with a rear exhaust Webra Speed 1.8 ccm and 3 servos. Thanks to you I now have the original plan.

* 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.
