Hi Mary/ Steve, a photo of the just finished Humbrol Hornet for the page with the plan [see more pics 007]. We've been test flying it but there was lots of fog so almost lost it. Later it will be painted so now it's just plain for testing it. I upload these photos to a flikr site I have just for model airplanes https://www.flickr.com/photos/127362729@N08/ I hope to make a model airplane blog this winter and link to the same site my self.

Hi Steve /Mary- a photo of my Humbrol Hornet as is completed [more pics 008]. By now it made many fine flights in the summer days of low wind speeds. Regards.

* 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.
