About this Plan

Mongrel - Sport radio control model. 60in wingspan for .40 engines and 4 function RC.

Quote: - "Mongrel was conceived, if that is the right word, while recovering from a bout of something or other, when leafing through aircraft books I was rather impressed by the looks of the Beagle Pup. In fact the design started out as a semi-scale version of that aircraft, but using a pair or wings I already had on hand in the workshop. The result, howevere has a definite Cherokee front end, and a Beagle rear end - so 'Mongrel' it became.
The model has very forgiving characteristics and should make quite a nice advanced trainer, as a change from all the usual high wing boxes. But do note the word 'advanced'. As regards construction, this itself is not too advanced, and if you have built two or three models, you should not find building presents any problems..."

* 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.
