About this Plan

Curtiss P-6E - Radio control scale model American biplane fighter.

Quote: "Colourful and exciting fighter of the mid-twenties, the Hawk series of Army fighters make an excellent scale subject for Radio Control Scale. Painted in its very colourful military colours, it will stop all eyes ...with proportional radio gear, it has now become accepted that with this type of aircraft, no compromise need be mde in tail areas to make a model fly; this model is an exact scale outline in every respect, though personally I'm not ready for the rib-for-rib copy. The plans were drawn from photographically enlarged Wylam drawings to a scale of 1-7/8in = 1ft, and I am indebted to club member Peter Tearall for his help in this matter... none of the construction is tedious, just time-consuming: when you start to flag, keep looking at the colour plate from the Profile #45 pinned up on your workshop wall."

* 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.
