About this Plan

Loening OL-9 - scale 1930s amphibian, flying boat. Mills 1.3 power. Scale is 1/12.

Quote: - "The OL-8 and OL-9 were much alike in general form, and for aeromodelling the long hull, generous areas and dihedral make it a fine scale selection ...flying speed with a Mills 1.3cc diesel up front is slow, and the shallow climb makes a full-tank power run feasible when there's not to omuch wind to cause drift. It will take off from smooth water on much less than full revs, and thanks to the long nose on the hull, it will never do anything other than land upright, either with power on or off..."

Mary and Steve, I thought that I would send you a couple pics of the 1/16 scale Loening OL-8A that I just finished [more pics 004-006]. It has a W.S. of about 40 inches and is completely scratchbuilt, in Spencer, Iowa, USA.

* 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.
