About this Plan

Tipsy Nipper - FF/UC scale IC model from MAN December 1960.

Quote: - "Nipper is most interesting as a model project because of its versatile nature which makes no deviation from scale outline or construction necessary for an exhibition scale (am I living in the past?) scale for rubber (fair) or small motor (excellent), slow flying, single channel R/C, or by adhering to outline, but building the model lke a government packing case, a scale U/C model that will stunt with the best. We shall deal with each type; although the drawings are for powered flying scale model, any type can be built when following these directions..."

* 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.
