About this Plan

Lanier 1/2A Shrike. Radio control sport model.

Quote: "1/2A Shrike. Building Instructions. The Shrike is a fun and exciting airplane, enjoyable to fly and will provide you thrills with its Jet like platform and speed. It can easily be carried without disassembly and the minute you arrive at the flying field it's ready to go. A good change of pace airplane to have in your hangar when you desire to switch stress levels from your daily work or, when you are tired of flying the same old airplane all the time. We know you will enjoy the Shrike.

Before starting to build, we urge you to read through these instructions while reviewing the plans. They contain some important building sequence as well as instructions and warnings concerning the assembly and use of the model. Some building tips have been included along the way to help you out. Or, if you have your own way of building , which some modelers have, so be it. At least read what we have to say then make your own determination. It will save you some time. We expect that you have some building experience to take on a built-up model however, every minute detail is not covered. This is not a basic trainer. The plans and instructions together with the laser cut parts, and the simplicity of this kit will allow you to produce a first class model..."

* 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.
