Hallo Mary, Hallo Steve. I send you new pictures from my model airplanes [more pics 008-011]. The pictures were created four weeks ago in Weilmunster, Germany

Hola Mary. These photos are from my last BABY built a few years ago and flown very often [more pics 013-015]. The photos are from April and put in flight by means of sandow.

In 1984 I travelled to Germany and found in the magazine FMT a review of the 50th anniversary, I send it for you if you consider it interesting to share [see supplementary file].

Hi Steve and Mary, this will be my next model. Thanks to OUTER ZONE and the people who upload! Life can be beautiful!

Hi Steve and Mary, here's my last building work, the BABY, model from 1941 [more pics 016]. Very cheap to build, so much fun for little money. I built it with a square fuselage, more place for the radio, the triangle hull is not so good for radio installation. Also the wing profile I have replaced my own profile - after 52 years experience I chose for profile. 120 gram or 0.2646 pound, is the weight now, a perfect result. Building light yet strong is not easy, this you will learn after years of experience.

Here's my Baby 1941 with the finished wing [more pics 017]. With surplus from previous aircraft, with this colour I see him well, very far. Now the tail assembly, and last the hull.

Hi Steve and Mary, the Baby is ready [more pics 018]. Now just a small auxiliary engine, and fly. I'm looking forward to 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.
