About this Plan

Queen Bee - Radio control model. QUote: - "A 48in radio control model by P Grimwade ...Designed for the ED Bee and built around the Dews Radio Unit, so that the average builder can build a cheap but efficient R/C model. Two of these models were built to give it a thorough testing, and the weight of each one came to about 1lb 10oz..."

This was my design in 1950, following 2 years of construction.

I am interested in seeing the updated plans of my original design.

* 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.
