About this Plan

Osprey - Radio control scale seaplane. For OS Max .45 power.

Quote: - "I've been flying seaplanes for many years, using floats on pattern ships, Quickie 500s, fun-type aircraft etc. I always wanted a flying boat. They seem to handle better on the water and in the air. A good example of these types of flying boats are Henry Struck's Sea Kat (oz304) or Don McGovern's Custom Privateer (oz278)... the only thing I found wrong with these airplanes was that they were not scale. I'm at that stage in my life when I want my models to look like real airplanes. One day I came across the 1970 Fall issue of Sport Flying, and there on the cover was a picture of a single seat pusher type flying boat, the 'Osprey I'. It looked just like an R/C model airplane taking off of a pond..."

* 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.
