About this Plan

Piper Cub Cruiser Model J5. Scale model for rubber power. Wingspan 27-19/32 in. Kit ref: R7.

Note this scan has some issues, there are some small sections that show signs of slippage, and some paper creases.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 29/01/2020: Added an alternate plan scan as a supplement file, thanks to Harald. Note this plan differs in some minor details, and is dated 1944, with kit ref: L7.

Quote: "Hello Mary, Steve, here I send you another plan of the Piper Cruiser. Yes, you've already 2 of them, but this is may be the very earliest of them. And interesting from a historical point of view. All the best for you,

Note both of these plans have no printwood. But it may be checking these against Piper Cub Cruiser J5 (oz3963) which is dated later but does include printwood.

Update 21/03/2021: Added cardstock scan, thanks to OleBill.

Quote: "Greetings... I had the good fortune to find and purchase a very old Comet kit yesterday, the kit No. L7, of the Cub J-5. The copyright on the plans is dated 1944. The kit is 100% complete, and is in amazing condition for its age. That said, the kit contains items not found in later kits of this same model. I am attaching a scan of a cardstock part that I've never before seen posted online. Perhaps you can use this as an attachment to other Comet J-5 Cub postings. Thanks,"

Supplementary file notes

Alternate scan (kit L7, 1944).

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz6751) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piper_J-5
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. 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.
