About this Plan

Splinter - Control line combat model. High aspect ratio design.

Quote: - "Its shape and proportions dictated by math, this combat machine proved many times that the .15 can take the .35!"

Update 12/05/2017: Added PDFvector modern redrawn version of the plan, thanks to GeorgeAlbo.

Quote: - "Hello Steve Mary, Here is a plan of the Splinter Combat Wing by Wild Bill Netzeband. I don't remember where I got this plan, but it was redrawn from the original by N. Holden. I did nothing to it other than send it to you. This plan features the 'Alternate' wing tip that was on the original plan, as such this wingspan is 42", versus the original span of 39". The original was powered by a Cox Tee Dee .15 SPL MK II. This model was featured in the April 1967 issue of American Modeler... Thanks, George"

* 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.
