About this Plan

Curtiss Basic Combat. Rubber scale model fighter.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 20/07/2016: Added alternative scan, thanks to dfritzke. This one shows black on white for the layout drawing section.

Update 24/07/2016: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to rchopper56.

Quote: "Hi Steve and Mary, I took what I thought was the best of Allen Hunt, Augusta West and Dave Fritzke's scans and combined them. The raster text was extracted from both pages and the sent to my OCR software. Then the results were sent to MS Word for further editing. The Word documents were then converted to pdf files. From the pdf files, tif files were extracted. The "text" tif files were then pasted back onto the drawings. I also added these 'text' pdf files to main pdf file making this a 6 page file. Hope all enjoy. Gene."

Supplementary file notes

Alternative scan. Also previous scan version.


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

  • NotFound | help

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

There is still no link to a wikiedia-article for this airplane. I presume it's a Curtiss CW-22 trainer as described here:

* 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.
