About this Plan

Bucks Duck - from Aeromodeller October 1949. A novel 77in span pusher model.

Quote: "Bucks Duck, being a medium large machine with delightfully slow and stable flying characteristics, is an ideal model for radio control. The tremendously strong nose and rear mounted engine give an unequalled resistance to unfriendly earth, while the construction throughout is more than sufficiently robust... power in this case is supplied by a 7.5cc Gerald Smith 'Redwing', but the model is suitable for any 5 to 10cc petrol or glow-plug engine... the cabin on the model it will be noted is not celluloid covered in the ususal fashion, but instead has a celluloid 'floor' which is curved up towards the engine to make an air duct for adequate cooling."

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

Hi Steve: Here's a pic of my Bucks Duck which I have been flying for the past 5 years -- note the replication of the original colour scheme. It is free flight and powered by a DC350 diesel. Best wishes,

In the plan details it has an incredibly string nose, should that not be strong? Always check your spell checker.

Thanks. Not sure I need a spell checker. I have you.

* 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.
