About this Plan

Blue Streak - Rubber speed model.

Quote: "90 mph with rubber. You don't need a gas engine for speed - try it this way ...a set of rules were drawn up to eliminate the troubles encountered with speed models of the past. Since torque was the major problem, it was decided to have the models fly in a circle about a center post. Fifteen feet was the selected radius, in view of the limited floor space. Since the planes were rubber powered, it was necessary to begin timing almost immediately..."

* 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.
