About this Plan

Waco Taperwing -

Quote: "I take a three view and start from there. This Waco is a modeller's dream for flying, whether the modeller is new at the game or an old seasoned flyer from way back when. The drawings I used for this plane were in the Air Classics of January 1975, and after reading the article and seeing the old bird all feathered out for racing, I just had to build it. I used a conventional landing gear to simplify things, and took Jerry Nelson's construction ideas for the fuselage and tail assembly. This makes it easy to build and most importantly, holds down the weight..."

* 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.
