User comments

Here is another kit scan: Comper Swift, (The Scarlet Angel). I see Andrew Moorhouse did a lot of Co2 but this one is rubber. This really is a beautiful little kit. The detailed plans are very interesting, giving two colour schemes and two ways of making wooden props. There is an excellent article about this kit on the Impington Model Aeroplane Club site, September 2016 news letter [see supplementary file].

* 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.
