About this Plan

Sky Rocket. Free flight gas model. This version of the Berkeley Skyrocket plan shows a design credit to Leon Shulman, and includes full text instructions.

Quote: "For modelers who want to know about the Sky Rocket - A class 'A' ship designed for the class 'A' motor. This ship has proved itself at all contests including the Nationals. It incorporates basic principles used by contest winners throughout the country. Because of all the so called bugs being removed from this design, I assure you complete satisfaction with contest winning performance ...we would like to hear of your results with this model. A fellow model builder - Leon Shulman."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Note model photo is from MAN, June 1940 (p24) in a Gas Lines article, captioned: "Leon Shulman and his latest" which predates the kit by some years.

I put about 8 hours of work in cleaning this plan from the original scan. See more pics 003,004 for before and after screenshots.

* 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.
