About this Plan

Taylorcraft. 54 in span scale rubber, kit no. 3505 by Comet. Span 54in, length 33in. Scale is 1-1/2in = 1ft. Plan shows all printwood and is very detailed.

Quote: "The Taylorcraft is a big flying scale model, with a wingspan of 54in. It is designed to an exact scale of 1-1/4in = 1 ft. Every detail of the original ship has been carefully reproduced, thanks to the co-operation of the Taylorcraft factory. The exterior and interior of the plane have boon faithfully duplicated.

Some of the outstanding features are: shock-proof landing gear, cabin doors that can be opened, movable controls, detachable wings and an automatic wing jig that cuts building time. The kit Contains a large, detailed plan which makes the construction a pleasure. This is a 'must' on your list of models to build."


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz81) 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.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylorcraft_B
    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.

Much modified from Comet's 54" kit, this is a clipped wing (43" span) version of a T-Craft in Great Britain [more pics 003-004].

Your lead picture for this Comet Taylorcraft is the box image off the DUMAS RC kit.

Ah, you're right. Ok, have replaced that for now with a pic of the Comet 54 in Taylorcraft box art, grabbed from ebay. See also pic 011.

* 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.
