About this Plan

BDF-1. Free flight pylon gas model, for Cox .020 Pee Wee motor.

Update 26/01/2020: Have rescaled this plan to correct fullsize at 25 in, thanks to Chuck. Previously dpi was set to 96 rather than 200.


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

Mary, this same plane by the same designer, Paul Denson, is also listed as the Quarter Pint (oz2183) and 1/4 Pint. That one is dated April, 72. There are a few very slight modifications between them, about what a scratch builder would implement.

Added a couple of nice pics of the finished model, thanks to Bradley Terrell [model photo & more pics 003].

Mary/Steve, You may want to check the wingspan in the BDF-1 description. I think the 25" may have been transposed. Looking at the scaled plan to print at 100% it appears to be 52".

Good point. Have fixed this now.

* 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.
