About this Plan

Flying Midget - Free flight power model.

Quote: "When the 'Flying Midget' design appeared in the August 1937 issue of Model Airplane News it caused a few double-takes. A 49-1/2in model with a Brown Junior for power? Browns were more usually seen in seven or eight footers... Flying Midget is a robust little model - the classic silhouette of a 1937 model originally designed for the Brown Junior and scaled down for small modern power plants."

Original design by Thracy Petrides and Malcolm Abzug, this is a later re-drawn and smaller plan, from 1993.

Steve, Here's a few pics of a model built from plans of the 1993 Vic Smeed version of the Flying Midget found on Outerzone [see more pics 003-005]. Can't tell you how much enjoyment has been had from browsing, and building from plans there. Thank you!

* 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.
