About this Plan

Norseman III - RC pattern plane.

Quote: "The end result of a long line of experimental prototypes, the Norseman III is the ultimate in total performance for multi-channel contest aircraft ...the result was a light, compact and easy to transport aircraft, with pleasing lines and extremeley fast and smooth. Another advantage was its outstanding performance in either wind or in calm air. The Norseman is as simple to construct as a multi ship can be, and perhaps even more important, it is consistent."

Hi Everyone - This is Ron Chapman's NORSEMAN RC Pattern scanned directly from my issue of the Feb 1964 RCM. It seems to be a 64in wingspan for this early winning Pattern model. Steve WMD - this has been submitted to outerzone. Enjoy,

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 10/09/2017: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy (text & interpage gap restored), thanks to davidterrell80.

* 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.
