About this Plan

Old Trusty - Sport Trainer - Free flight gas parasol model. Original model was Brown Jr powered (.60 ign). Published Man Oct 1940. Redrawn September 1982, by Dick Gleason.

Quote: "How you can build and fly one of the most sturdy and reliable gas models - perfectly designed ...let's see how the Sport Trainer measures up to our requirements. First of all, it does look like an airplane. Of course, the cockpit may be a little out of date in this age of cabin ships equipped with heaters, overstuffed seats and chrome plated door handles, but it contributes a great deal towards realism..."

* 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.
