About this Plan

New Baby R.O.G. Freeflight, tractor monoplane. Span: 12 1/8in. Author: Merrill Hamburg, A.M.L.A. Publisher: The American Boy-Youth's Companion. Manufacturer: A kit was manufactured by George D. Wanner & Company for the A.M.L.A. Year: October, 1929. Plan Size: 11inx 8.5in. Source: The American Boy, October, 1929, pages 12, 32. Scale:1/1.6407, digital file. Notes: Scannedand edited in PC Paint from Frank Zaic, Model Airplanes and The American Boy, pages 62-63. These pages are reduced from the originals. I removed the redundant propeller carving sequence and replaced it with the wire tail surface construction detail, scaled to match the fin in the fuselage side view. I fixed the asymmetrical tailplane drawing. The full size tailplane span is 3.39in and the fin span is 2 5/16in. I added a title block... This is part of a project I have undertaken to report on simple beginner models of the first blossoming of model aviation on my educational website

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

* 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.
