About this Plan

Miss Los Angeles. Brown B-2. Radio control scale model racer.

Quote: "The long, slender fuselage of 'Miss Los Angeles' with its inverted in-line engine, open cockpit, long headrest that fairs into a graceful tail, and brilliant red with gold aim finish is. to me. a classic design that begs to be modeled.

In designing this model, I wanted to keep it in the popular 40 engine size range and still retain as many of its scale features as possible without sacrificing flyability and durability. As a result, the model is scale, or close to it, in all major areas except wingspan. The wing, if built to the same 19% scale as the fuselage, would have a span of 43in and the wing loading would be an 'interesting' 40 oz/sq ft. The model's wingspan was increased to 58 in, the chord increased slightly to 9-3/4 in, and the resulting wing loading is a very nice handling 24 oz/sq ft. 'Miss Los Angeles' flies like a typical low wing trainer but it sure looks better doing it!

Exact scale outlines for the wing and stabilizer are shown on the drawings for anyone who might want to try them or enlarge the model to a larger scale. A 1/3 exact scale model would have a wingspan of only 77in and should have a reasonable wing loading.

The model's fuselage and vertical tail are exact scale in profile, but the following deviations from scale were made for improved flight performance and ground handling: Wingspan: increased from 43" to 58". Wing Chord: increased from 8.5" to 9.75". Airfoil Thickness: increased from 1" to 1.375". Wing Dihedral: increased from 0° to .5°. Stabilizer Span: increased from 14,5" to 17.5"."

    ScaleType: This (oz7405) 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/Brown_B-2_Racer
    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.
