About this Plan

Boeing P-26A Peashooter. Quarter scale model of the 1930s fighter monoplane, for radio control.

Quote: "The Peashooter is as close to a big pattern plane as you can get! I came to this conclusion after having both designed and built some 10 giant scale models of various performance capabilities, and evolving to this low-wing, high-power and 'pattern performance' plane. My Peashooter turned out to be a new learning experience as well. Not from a flying standpoint, but from the contest exposure. It's a plain and simple fact that you darn near have to have a plane that flies like a pattern ship to rank at most contests ...my Peashooter just recently qualified for the US Scalemasters Championships by placing in the top five at the Mint Julep in Kentucky. And that was the first contest my Peashooter entered! With a distinctive looking airplane such as my P-26A ablaze in such an uncommon splash of beautiful colors and patterns, how could it lose?"

    see Wikipedia | search Outerzone


    ScaleType: This (oz7921) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_P-26_Peashooter
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
