About this Plan

AT-6 SNJ - Sport scale model for radio control.

Quote: "A semi-scale version of the North American Harvard II designed for the Graupner/OS Wankel engine. Pattern performance on a .29 to .40 ...the real plus for this model is its ability in the air. The power, drag, and wing loading ratio is close to perfect. The first few flights were a thrill for me. I found myself doing things that are normally difficult for me..." Hi Steve - Here is Bryce Petersen's AT-6 SNJ from RCM magazine issue 09-71.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

I bought my Dad a 0.40 Wankle Rotary model engine for his birthday in 1970. He scratch built this plane, including drawing up his own plans off the little plans in RCM (He was a Sr. Design Engineer for Goodyear Aerospace) and we let the club pro test fly it. The 1972 vintage airplane will be flying again in 2015, now with an E-flite Power 46! Keep up the good work!

Steve: Most every Sunday morning in the late '40s, Bryce would wake me up running his engines - South Hills, Charleston WV. Bryce had a lot plans published, IMHO his best plan was the C-45 Twin.

I have a kit for this plane AT-6 Texan. It states on the box: Design by Bryce Peterson, Aero Precision, Collins Industry Inc., 322 North East St, Tipton, Indiana, 46072. I would like to know what year this kit was made. I have built it but not flown it yet. Any info would be great. I have searched the net but to no avail. Thank you,

An answer for Wayne: this Bryce Petersen design was published in R/C Modeler Magazine, September 1971, plan #407. The kit would have been available around that time too. Sometimes the kit announcement coincided with the plan publication.

* 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.
