About this Plan

Martin MO-1 - Control line model. Class I Navy Carrier, 1921 vintage.

Quote: -"ONE of the most rewarding aspects of this hobby is the designing of a model and then following through with the building, perfecting, flying, and winning with this aircraft. I tremendously enjoy flying in competition and am always looking for something different, something original that I can call my own.
While going through the books in a library 400 miles from home, I found the first bit of information which led to the design of this model. The book, ?Air- planes of the World ? 1490-1962? by Doug Rolfe and, of all people. Bill Winter, showed a small drawing of the plane, and gave the information that the MO-1, de- signed in 1921 as a shipboard observation plane, was the first all-metal plane de- signed and built in the United States. The word ?shipboard" was all the incentive that I needed."

* 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.
