About this Plan

Jiffy. Free flight power sport model. Class A gas model. Uses Ritz wing construction.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 20/9/2022: Added printwood scan, thanks to Steve Betts.

Quote: "Hello Steve, I had this kit which I ended up selling on eBay, I scanned the print wood on my A4 printer but will need joining by one of your competent people that restore the plans [done]. The 3rd sheet with the ribs was actually on very stiff card instead of balsa, there was a note within the kit saying due to the war movement balsa parts could be substituted with other materials. Thought that was rather interesting. I hope this helps in some small way. Best regards, Steve Betts."

Supplementary file notes



Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User comments

The Jiffy is featured in Model Craftsman, March 1944 issue. In MC 3/44, the plan is a one-half full size reproduction of the H&F Model Airplane Co. plan (same plan in OZ file) displayed across two pages. There is no accompanying construction article for the Jiffy plan in MC 3/44, and the plan shows no credit to a designer (Sydney Struhl). In MC 3/44, there are two photos of the Jiffy, and those two photos are from the same photos of the Jiffy seen on the plan in the OZ file. The Jiffy plan in the OZ file is actually a better presentation of the plan than what you can see in the MC 3/44 issue.

* 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.
