Hi Steve and Mary, I have some photos of the Playboy Senior oz7836 [more pics 003-007]. I saw the red one in Ocalla, Florida in 2014 and decided I had to build one. I finally did and completed the white/beige one, and flew it today off the frozen lake at our home. Great Oldtimer that I have always loved.

* 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.
