About this Plan

Snyder-McReady Baby Bomber - Scale model of the 1920s American homebuilt design, for Telco CO2 power.

Quote: - "The Baby Bomber was devloped by OH Snyder beginning in 1921. Powered by a two cylinder, fifteen horsepower Indian motorcycle engine, it was one of the few practical and provn designs available to the home builder in the early 1920s ...the model is of considerable eye-appeal ans also flies exceptionally well. Frankly, CO2 power is simple great for fun type flying. A model of this size will fit in a box from the grocery store, can be carried in the smallest of sub-compact cars, and requires only the charger in the pocket and the model in the hand. Playgrounds and even empty lots provide sufficient space..."

Attached is my scan of the Snyder-McReady Baby Bomber from Flying Models magazine issue 08-78.

* 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.
