About this Plan

Big D - Indoor competition model. Big D, a classic type indoor microfilm job. From Model Airplane News. Participated in Nats 1973*. Indoor Stout Trophy winner for Class D Stick. Microfilm airframe. Many thanks to Pit for clarification on this one.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 09/11/2017: added article from Model Airplane News May 1975, thanks to RFJ. *This article reflects on the Big D's performance in the Nats. It states the first year it flew was 1973, so I have amended the above paragraph (Mary).

* 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.
