About this Plan

Grumman Skyrocket - Control line scale twin model. Scale is 1/12.

Quote: - "This twin-engined job will provide you with all the thrills in the book once you lanch it at the end of a control line... Our model is a close reproduction of the prototype, being built to a one-inch scale. Because of its proportions engines up to .45 cu in displacement can safely be used without overpowering.
A built up fuselage is a time consuming and laborious task, so we decided to use balsa block and simplify the fuselage. A pair of balsa blocks 1-1/2 x 4 x 24in are cemented together. Proceed with the outer contours, following closely the fuselage sections shown..."

* 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.
