About this Plan

Aeroneer. Scale rubber low-wing cabin model.

Quote: "Complete Your Fleet of Flying Scales by Building This Realistic Simple High Performance Sportplane BY HERBERT SPATZ

A LOW-WING all-metal, sportplane of exceptionally clean design is the Aeroneer. The 125 hp Menasco C-4 engine pulls it at a 150 mph clip. Besides being moderately priced the ship carries many accessories, including an electric starter, hydraulic brakes and wing flaps, which bring the landing speed drown to 41 mph.

Our model is accurate in all respects, except those usual changes necessary to produce a good flying scale model. In action it makes a beautiful sight, leaping into the air and making long fast flights. Indeed the Aeroneer makes a worthy addition to any model builder's fleet. Well, let's start; what're we waiting for?

Fuselage. First join plates 1 and 3 at K-K, building the sides in the usual manner. The entire base frame is 1/16 square hard balsa, Don't use too much glue; just enough to hold the joints together. To obtain the top and bottom cross members, double the sizes in the plan. Notice the bottom cross member at station 1 tapers inward. Next, cut the formers from 1/16 sheet balsa (plate 5) and cement in their respective places. Put in the stringers..."

Update 16/06/2014: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, assembled onto a single sheet.

User comments

Steve, I've studied the beautiful Aeroneer plan by Herb Spatz for a while and believe the upper B1 fuselage former is missing from the printwood line-up, as a result, the rest are out of sequence. The printwood line-up is phantom B1=missing, making B1=B2, B2=B3, B3=B4, B4=B5, B5=B6 and B6 is phantom B7. Studying the side view reveals the missing B1 placement through B6, and phantom B7 not marked. Solution : Using the front, top and side view one could create the missing upper B1 fuselage former for building, then include it on the plan. Now, the new printwood line-up could be re-labeled replacing B1 etc. with T for Top separating from those B7 thru B10 bottom formers. Awesome site, visit at least twice a day. My thanks to all that bring it together.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
