About this Plan

Vought Sikorsky OS2U-1 Kingfisher - Rubber scale model of the US Navy observation plane.

Quote: - "We present plans for both the land and sea version, so you can take your choice. Because it's lighter the land version will perform better. On the other hand, there's something about the lines of a seaplane that gets you. So make up your mind. We chose the seaplane. In either case, the first part to make is the wing, as its center section is used as a jig for the fuselage... "

This plan and article was published (reprinted) in the book "Air Age Flying Models" printed 1944 see RCLibrary page at http://rclibrary.co.uk/title_details.asp?ID=1870 for more details.

* 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.
