About this Plan

Firebird - Hi Steve - Here is Joseph M. Mergen's Firebird from RCM magazine issue 06-81. Plan shows two alternate wing drawings, at 51in and 30in wingspan.

Quote: - "Two for one - well, almost. Firebird is certainly two airplanes. The flight characteristics of the full-wing and the clipped wing versions could hardly be more different. And all for the price of one very small and simple wing which can be substituted on the spot for the full span wing in forty five seconds without tools."

* 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.
