About this Plan

Microplano Veloz - Scale model for CO2 power. Scale is 1/24.

Quote: - "The Microplano Veloz caught the writer's eye for several reasons: first, it's an obscure type and he was bored with too many models of well-known planes; secondly, authentic records credit it with being an extremely able aircraft (probably the equal of most, and the superior of some US designs of that period) and lastly, this plane materialized in CO2 powered flying scale form because its proportions make it a natural for realistic flights. Take it from an old-timer, there's nothing quite like a scale model of a biplane for realism. Try this model and be convinced. Construction is very simple, the only unusual feature being the staggered position of the inter-plane struts.
The principal material required is a generous supply of even grained, medium weight 1/20in sheet balsa, a small amount of 1/16in sheet balsa, and the usual scraps found on any modeler's work table. First make templates of the fuselage..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
