About this Plan

White Comet Jr. CL speed model.

Quote: "WHITE COMET JR was derived from White Comet Sr, the ship which holds the Class VI (C) AMA speed record. White Comet Sr was the result of some high powered head scratching- and sketching during 1945 and early '46, and worked out so well that it seemed a good idea to develop a Class B speed ship from the same design. The McCoy people had an experimental McCoy '49' they thought might really do something, so this powerplant was put into White Comet Jr for its maiden flight. This took place a week before the All Western Open, and resulted in a speed of 111.50 mph. Entered in the All Western, the ship captured the top spot with 108.88 mph, and also set a new AMA record of 111.59 mph, flying from the pylon.

In every subsequent meet entered, White Comet Jr has topped its class, clicking off speeds as follows..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
