About this Plan

Grumman XF4F-2 - Rubber powered scale model WWII US Navy fighter.

Quote: - "The Grumman Mono-Pursuit. Build This Flying Replica of A Modern Navy Fighter, by Herbert K Weiss... First of the line of Twin Wasp powered, mid-wing flying-powerhouses to reach the public eye was the XF4F-2, for which plans are here presented. Since the XF4F-2 was put through its paces the design has been carried still farther with the object of improving the stability and performance ...Our model is of the earlier XF4F-2; the experimental ship with its round wing tips and rudder. Simply built to attain lightness for good performance, this model Grumman has turned in many long stable flights of average half-minute duration. Modellers desiring to reproduce the latest square-tipped model may easily perform the conversion with the aid of photographs of the latest design..."

This plan and article was published (reprinted) in the book "Air Age Flying Models" printed 1944 see RCLibrary page at 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.
