About this Plan

Diamond Slim. Rubber sport model.

Quote: "It's rakish, bizarre, and it's weird. To top it off, it's an easy-to-adjust and simple to build model that takes off like a scared cat. All you need to do is crank the prop and it's ready to fly... "

Mary, I checked my collection for those Ted Strader plans that you were lacking, this one I did not have in the library but found the magazine on e-bay, so here it is. From: Flying Models, september 1956. Scanned from the magazine with construction article and full size parts, plan scaled to 200% which appears correct. The cover is a shot from Disneyland in the mid 50's with a CL circle in front of the TWA pavillion. Dave

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

* 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.
