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

You have published the plans of the Chimbo OZ 9649, but nothing of its author, so I'm sending you some historic photos of our beloved aeromodelling professor, José Gogorcena Anzoategui, designer of many models. They may wake up memories among the most veteran European aeromodellers. Foto 1 1952: left to right Batllo, Gogorcena & Illan, standing up Severo Brusel. Foto 2: Gogorcena in Avión magazine. Foto 3 Gogorcena in the "San Isidro" contest, 1952 [more pics 006-008].

* 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.
