About this Plan

Rearwin Speedster - Rubber scale model.

Quote: "The original model weighed approximately seven and one-half ounces when ready to fly, but in spite of this fact flights varying from 90 to 120 seconds have been made consistently; its official flight was 87 seconds at the Nationals... Our airplane was designed with greatest consideration given to ruggedness, stable climb, flat glide and appearance. By following the directions..."

Quote: "1940 Nationals Rubber Scale Winner. Original plan published in Model Airplane News May 1940. Drawn by Harold Osborne. Scale 1-1/8in = 1 foot."

* 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.
