About this Plan
Super Sportster 20. Radio control sport model. Discontinued kit from Great Planes.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 13/11/2016: Replaced this with a good clean scan of the correct plan now, thanks to MarkWinstanley.
Seems the previous file was a resized 60 plan with a bad title block.
Update 09/05/2018: added kit review from Radio Modeller, February 1995, thanks to RFJ.
Supplementary file notes
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsAh. OK. Thanks for the corrections. Seems this is not a Super Sportster 20 plan, it's actually a re-sized 60 plan, but has been mis-identified. Will change this entry asap. Anyone out there got a clean 20 plan? Thanks

Hi Mary - I thought you would like this photo of Don Anderson which was taken in my house in Detroit in 1972 [more pics 004]. Don was a test engineer in the General Motors' Pontiac Motor Division's Bumper Test Laboratory in Pontiac, Michigan. I was on a 1 year working assignment as a Body Engineer from Vauxhall Motors in England. This included two work experience periods and two at the General Motors Institute in Flint. I met Don during the second work period finding out about 5 mph bumper tests and we spent a lot of time talking about model aircraft. Don went on to set up 'Great Planes'. I don't know what model he had on his lap, but it certainly has the look of models he designed later in life for Great Planes.

* 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.
