User commentsHello Steve, Some more images of the Jnr Skylark, Carl Goldberg design [see more pics 004-008]. I simply LOVE Outerzone - thanks for what you are doing. The Model was built by Ian Laing (now residing in the UK) and then covered & flown by myself at the ARCF field in South Africa. Pictured is a much younger Edith in 1969 with Ian's 1st Jnr Skylark & his OS Pixie, and a similar photo circa 2014 with Edith holding the new Jnr Skylark flown with Spektrum radio gear. Ian & Edith is also pictured together. What a plane.

Jr. Skylark built from original kit in 1970 by Roger Heath, originally powered by a Cox TD .09 and two channel Rand actuator. Recently rebuilt with with a 2212 Outrunner motor, Castle receiver, and added ailerons [more pics 009, 010].

Hi Steve/Mary. Was home again on R and R this past weekend so was able to get some flying and photographs done. Please find attached bare bones of Carl Goldberg's Junior Skylark [more pics 011-014]. The plan was taken from Outerzone with thanks, and the most difficult part of this build was finding a canopy. Can see I will have to mold my own in future.

Hi Steve and Mary, please find this photo [more pics 015] of myself with my Goldberg Junior Skylark with an Ace Pulse Commander RC system and a Cox Golden Bee .049. Date? 1968. More than 50 years ago. You can add this photo on the plan page of this model. Hope it is good enough since it was scanned from a half frame Ektachrome slide and increased to 600 dpi... Thanks and best wishes,

I saw this in the new comments column and had to peek. This is terrific, the same design being repeated on and on in a variety of places and times. Even Mr "Thousand Planes" Coutts had to chip in too! Different faces at different times, yet the smile is the same in all photos. Bless you all, and bless OZ for their part in spreading the good word in this particular corner of happiness!

* 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.
