About this Plan

City Gent. Radio control sport model for .35 to .45 4-stroke engines.

Quote:- "I was wanting another fun model for flying at one of our club fields, which had become four-stroke only. My previous design Bantam, was being used at the time, but I wanted something which looked different to the run of the mill sport acrobatic model. I thought that a model based on the 1930 American circuit racers could be quite appealing. This led to a design with upright engine (easy to operate), open cockpit (cheap and easy to make) and nicely rounded flying surfaces (good looks). I also made provision for bolt on wings, a dural undercarriage and steerable tail skid. A shoulder wing layout was adopted and the model would fit into the car in one piece. I like to use standard size sheets of balsa, it's cheaper and there is no trouble getting hold of it. There is nothing exotic used in the construction and don't be put off by the shape of the wing and rolled ply decking, they are easy.
So you're wanting to get started? I like to kit a model before starting. It's much easier if all the parts are to hand before you start..."

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

* 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.
