About this Plan

Missy Dara - Radio control quarter midget racer.

Quote: - "The most exciting QM to ever take a checkered flag, Missy DARA is an all-out effort at maximum scale fidelity. It's fast, to boot! The original full-size Miss DARA was a Formula racer of the mid 1960s. After several attempts at competing, however, it suffered a fatal crash in a test flight and never appeared on the race scene again. I couldn't resist trying to recapture its appealing, unique shape in the form of a Quarter Midget (QM) racer. It is my impression that many modelers buy modeling magazines for the inspiration from the photos of other modelers' efforts. Besides the information that can be gleaned from the articles, pictures of fellow modelers' planes inspire daydreams of the perfect flying model. Missy DARA was designed to race, but she should also inspire other QM enthusiasts to build racers which are more representative of their full-scale counterparts..."

* 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.
