About this Plan

Pine Needle,. Free flight gas model.

Quote: "Though made of hardwood this tough, easily built little gas model performs like a balsa job. Pine Needle, by Dick Everett.

This little model gets its name from the aterial used in construction the original. Hardwood (pine) was used with many misgivings, but the little ship proved a pleasant surprise. The one thing learned was that substituting hardwood for balsa did not make construction as difficult as supposed.

Pine wa sused on the original ship, but basswood will do equally well, and after your first flight we are sure that the buhgaboo of hardwood will be dispelled from your mind.

Though designed to take care of those matched Ohlssons, the 19 and 23, you will find that this ship will take a large variety of moors; the motor mounts are so designed that you can change them to take care of any motor on hand. The shjip is very stable an has taken all power available, turning in some very fine flights..."

Quote: "Hi Steve - This is Dick Everitt's 'Pineneedle' as scanned from my issue of the Feb 1943 Model Airplane News. It is a WW2 model built during restrictions with hard and softwoods and looks like it would fly well. Submitted by jeff mccammant story city iowa. Thanks!"

* 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.
