Culver V - Stand-off scale model
Quote: "This Stand-Off Scale RC model of the Post-War Culver V brings back a plane that history forgot. Its advanced ideas were lost in a surplus market. Bored with so called 'Sunday' flying? Most of us soon are if the plane is one of the usual trainers that only vaguely resemble a real plane. But no one is bored when he is the center of attention as you will be when you take a beautiful scale model out of the trunk. More than that, you will be the envy of everyone when you make that low pass fly-by and almost see the pilot wave to you.
If you have ever been afraid of scale models or thought of them as tricky or poor flyers, you can quickly get over this feeling with the Culver V.
Here is a four pound, 51in span, Enya .29 powered Kraft radio controlled model of a post-war 'safe' personal plane. It has taken the boredom out of Sunday flying for me, why not you too? This is a zippy little ship that is fun to fly.
Background. Shortly after VJ Day, the Culver model V was announced and placed into production. It is one of many post-war designs that were intended to provide civilian wings for the vast number of returning World War II airmen. The designer, Albert Mooney, began his career in aviation design in 1929 when Don Luscombe formed Mono-Aircraft Corporation in Moline, Illinois. The chief engineer at that time was Clayton Folkerts..."

* 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.
