About this Plan

Paragon. Free flight sport cabin model.

Quote: "ALTHOUGH to many eyes the general appearance of this model will be a reminder of early sports power model designs, Paragon is a good example of the typical high wing cabin layout with simple construction making it ideal for beginners. It is also our first design to be incorporated in AEROMODELLER Plans Service from Asia and we hope it will inspire our many other readers in Eastern countries to give us the opportunity of publicising their designs.

Youthful Safdar Qureshi is a Pakistani student at present in college at Rawalpindi, and he has been flying this 40 inch model with a Mills .75 cc diesel with great consistency. His Paragon will also suit the new .8 cc glow plug engines and although we did not include the engine capacity in our specification, the AS-55 is so exceptional a 'point-five', it too would suit admirably. For the beginner construction is both simple and inexpensive."

Hello again, Here are photos of the Paragon enlarged to around 70” and converted to R/C [pics 003-007]. Powered by an OS 25 FP and tissue over doculam covering. The designer was a friend who lost his battle with cancer some time ago and this model is a tribute in his memory. Regards,

* 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.
