About this Plan

Pylon Polisher - Radio control pylon racer for Holland Hornet power.

Quote: "Radio controlled pylon racing with pit stops by Half-A powered planes is latest experiment by the SLOW Club of Washington DC. This job really gets around ...these 26in span 1/2A pylon racers are really exciting, and it does not hurt financially either."

Pylon Polisher, American Modeller, December 1960.

My name is Tom Como and I'm from Holland, Ohio. I'm 68 years old and this is my first contribution to Outerzone. I've been a long time follower to your site and truly appreciate all you do. These pictures are of the Pylon Polisher from American Modeler Mag. Dec, 1960 [more pics 003, 004]. I always wanted to build one and have it almost completed. I'll send more pictures of it soon.

* 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.
