About this Plan

Bell YFM-1 Airacuda - Profile scale heavy fighter prototype model.

Quote: "Powered by two Cox .049 reed-valve engines, this profile-fuselage control line sport scale version ofa neat plane from the 1930s is easy to build and great fun to fly. It'll be a sensation at the flying field - both from appearance and sound of the twin engines."

* 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.
