About this Plan

Modelcraft Scout. Free flight gas model.

Quote: "In July, 1936, a second gas model was added to the Modelcraft line. Called the Scout, it was a shoulder-wing design with a cowled, upright engine. The kit permitted the builder to choose a wing of either 48 or 54 in wingspan. Later, the Scout line was extended to include a 60 in span wing and either a high or low-wing mounting."

Quote: "Traced from an original plan (a blueprint) by Bill Thompson. This is an accurate copy of the original, right down to the horrendous spelling 3-4-65."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Excellent link, many thanks. Have just used that to add more background and pics to our Corben Super Ace (oz4716) listing, too.

* 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.
