About this Plan

Spectre - Control line stunt model.

Quote: - "What makes this CL Stunter for a .40 engine especially appealing is its full-scale like sports plane appearance. Yet it has all the good things for operating in Precision Aerobatics to the pilot's full ability. It's by a noted French designer who competes and wins regularly in the European contest circuit ...several planes provided the inspiration for this new model. The wing, tail surfaces and moment arms were inspired by Les MacDonald's Stiletto (oz6665) as was my Stilomag which appeared in the April 1981 MA, while the fuselage outline was inspired by the little Spectre (oz1327) kit put out by the British Keil Kraft firm."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

Handsome design. There's a missing page, or pages in the supplement, between the last and the penultimate pages. It/they describe the fuselage construction which the designer describes as somewhat unusual. It's the concave sides - how are they assembled to the formers? There does not appear to be a full length fuselage crutch. Perhaps a jig of some kind is needed? Regards

Thanks for pointing this out, Martyn. I've added the missing page to the article, thanks to RFJ.

* 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.
