Giant Peashooter (oz8764)
About this Plan
Giant Peashooter. Sport model.
Quote: "Funny you should ask. In the spring of 1987, I designed a low-wing, sport-flying model that was very easy to build and is the best flying model I've ever flown. When it was time to finish the model, I looked at a picture hanging on my shop wall and decided, yes, that's how I will finish the new design. The colorful picture was of a Boeing P-26A called the Peashooter, so that's what I dubbed my new creation. The August 1987 issue of Model Airplane News featured a construction article on my model, which later became a Coverite kit.
...the model flew so well that I wanted one on a larger scale for IMAA events. I had a friend in the blueprint business enlarge the design photographically so that I'd be able to construct an 82in wingspan version, using a Webra .91 I thought this would be a super combination and time has proven me right. Norm Strout - a good modeler friend of mine - wanted to build his first big model, so we decided to build a pair together. I would cut and prepare all of the parts and sub-assemblies for the two models, and because he had more spare time than I, he would do most of the building. We also agreed that we would finish them identically using the original Peashooter color scheme that gave rise to my Giant Peashooter!"

* 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.
