I have a photo for the plan page of the CB 30 Papillon [pic 003]. I took this photo many years ago. My Papillon has an old English Mills 75 for power.

Hello to both of you, While surfing on the Retroplane site, I discovered that an issue of the magazine "Radio Modélisme" did an article on the "old timer" CB 30 from 1942. And apparently, in 1978, there were still boxes available! Well, it's written in French... not everything is perfect ;-)
The site that offers these magazine scans does a great job for anyone who wants to re-read these old magazines ;-) https://rc-paper.com

Bonjour Olivier, this is a question that has intrigued me: how was it possible to practice air modelling under the Occupation? Who did it? What materials, as balsa was naturally off-limits? Rubber for motors, fuels for combustion engines? Considering the harshness of the Occupation, none of these would be easy to obtain, and most likely not for everyone, can you tell something on the subject?

Hello Miguel, There was no more balsa or harder to find, thinner "hard" wood to bring the models to life. More or little rubber hence apparently a lot of gliders. If you look closely at plans like the one I'm finishing, Guy Borgé's av6 is "hard" wood. The reign of the poplar ;-) . It should also be known that it was at one time forbidden to practice motorized aerial model making under penalty of serious sanctions by the occupier. In case it would have allowed a transfer of information. In the prisoner of war camps, for the officers, there are many aerial model activities to occupy their morale. And modeling even depends on a Ministry of Air Sports ;-) So, unless I'm mistaken, there was modeling activity during this period...

* 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.
