About this Plan

UFO - Free flight IC ducted fan model.

Quote: - "Are there travellers from space? We think so. Here's a scale model of their ship..."

And it's a strange one, a tri-plane in disguise. This is from Flying Models, December 1955. Free Flight ducted fan novelty are the best tags I can come up with. I think Paul was trying to 'out-weird' Mr Roy Clough! Dave

* 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.
