Dorland, AeroModeller August 1951
Now online as (oz11082)
Found by hawkeye - 18/04/2019
Requested by ChrisPinn - 18/04/2019 - who said: "I just loved reading the August 1951 issue of Aeromodeller as it was one I had never seen before [see RCLibrary]. I was very taken by the article 'Convert the Dorland to Diesel Power'. I tried to track down a plan of the Dorland in my files, but wasn't able to. It must have been published in 1946 as there is a b&w photo of it flying in the October 1946 Aeromodeller and the cover of the November 1946 issue has a colour painting of this attractive model. I can imagine that modellers of vintage models, such as myself, would be motivated to build this diesel conversion if the plan of the Dorland was available. Please keep a lookout for it!!"

Piece O'Cake, from Dynaflite
Now online as (oz11286)
Found by dfritzke - 20/06/2019
Requested by SergioArias - 22/03/2017 - who said: "I'd like to ask you about a model that surprisingly has not appeared among your collection so far. The model is the "Piece O'Cake" from Dynaflite. I don't know much about it. I am not sure whether Craft Air was the former manufacturer, and then it was taken over by Dynaflite or the other wary around. Anyway it's a plan that I'd like to have so as to build it some day. There's another model from Dynaflite, the "Butterfly" I found about searching for the "Piece O'Cake". Though there are two "Butterfly's" in the list, I'm unsure whether any of them is the design from Dynaflite. I will appreciate anything you can tell me about them. I look forward to seeing the "Piece O'Cake" in your list soon."

Found by DBHL - 24/02/2017
Requested by MichaelAdams - 20/02/2017 - who said: "I was browsing through some old (1950) copies of the Aeromodeller and spotted a HALFAX (NOT Halifax!) ad for a very pretty pod & boom glider of 40" span called "Roma". Here in Australia where I now live, the Australian Electric Flight Association has introduced a new competition glider class for pre-1956 Vintage Gliders, converted to electric power. I am just completing a conversion of the 1950 APS "Archangel" and the Roma has taken my fancy for a follow up conversion. It is not an Outerzone listed plan, is it possible that somebody out there still has a copy they can contribute to the cause? Many thanks. "

Found by vectis7 - 25/02/2017
Requested by David - 13/02/2017 - who said: "What can you tell me about a plan of the GAL Hotspur said to be published in the Sept, 1942 *Aeromodeller*? My *Aeromodeller* collection is rather vast (for a Colonial anyway), but I don't have that one. Reason is, Flying Aces Club has a new scale glider event this year and I'm looking for a follow up design to my Piper TG-8, currently being cut upon. The Hotspur is quite lovely, compared to the TG-8, certainly. Hotspur camo/flash scheme is a real hoot. Yours in toil."
Mercury Musketeer, Ron Prentice kit plan, 40
Now online as (oz8501)
Found by Fabio Gil - 02/03/2017
Requested by Fabio Gil - 09/02/2017 - who said: "The Mercury Musketeer by Ron Prentice, 40" C/L (with parts sheet, 3.5-5cc, 2 sheets) would be a great addition. I flew C/L from 1977 till 79 when I switched to R/C. In 2002 I restarted it and still remember well when the local club founder sported one in a beautiful and colourful finish at the circle back in 1978. It was shocking when another club member kicked its rudder, accidentally breaking it down during a demo gathering event, full of newcomers waiting to watch its maiden flight at the Clube Piracicabano de Aeromodelismo-Brazil."

Requested by MikeBateman - 25/07/2016 - who said: "Please could you help me locate full size plans for the above aeroplane, which dates from the 1940s. This is a F/F rubber powered model, and was one of many "Wakefield's" which won many competitions. I still have my Grandfather's Flying Minutes, which is 70 years old this year, and is the worse for being stored in the loft. Aero Modeller Plans Service listed the Plans as APS 10/39 AD 1045, and the drawings were by Lees and Stott of Halifax. I hope you will be able to help me to source them, as you already list three Aircraft under the "Halifax" name, and I have already downloaded "Spartan", "Albatross", and "Teal". I have Grandfather's "Spartan", and have recently sourced the correct Engine and Ignition Pack. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. With many thanks and kind regards,"

Found by RFJ - 29/04/2016
Requested by PeterVDWaterbeemd - 29/04/2016 - who said: "The Eliminator by Barry Wheeler in Outerzone appears not be the original plan. There is an Aeromodeler Plans Service plan (possibly numbered PET310, published May 1953) which present the same model but is a little different. For example, the original had wooden bearings as opposed to the aluminium/plastic mount in the current Outerzone plan. Can this be sourced and added to Outerzone?"

But the one I have always wanted to build since many years is the Greatplanes Super Skybolt but that set of plans have proved to be very evasive and therefore I've never managed to find it.

Requested by ChrisPinn - 12/04/2015 - who said: "Hi Steve, Could you please put the Contest Kits XC4 on your wanted list. I built one in 1962 and it was extremely fast when catapulted with an ex-Wakefield rubber model motor. It had a rubber band controlled blow-back elevator which prevented the model from looping when catapulted. Very simple and very effective. It was advertised as being capable of 100mph and I believe it. The kit cost 6s 11d, which is about 35p in today's money! Thanks"

Requested by BobMcKeon - 12/08/2013 - who said: "Am wondering if you've ever run across a plan from the late 50's by the name of 'Salt Lake City Sadie' Twin fin free flight for a .15 engine. ...That's all the memory I have of it. It appeared in one of the American mags back then. Enjoyed finding your Outerzone web pages...discovered this by accident, since I've been out of building for many years...brought back some fine memoriesThanx for your contribution to the hobby.

Thanks for you wonderful site. The work you put in is phenominal. I wish I had the skill to contribute, but I'm only just starting with CAD and the curve looks long and steep! "
Mercury Magna FF sport

Requested by DannyM - 27/07/2013 - who said: "Hi Steve. The Mercury Magna F/F sport model. I purchased this kit from the holy grail of London aeromodellers, 308 Holloway Rd. Henry J. himself sold me the kit in 1966. It was an easy build but inexperience in trimming sealed it's fate. Now I have a bit more experience I would like to have another go at it for sentimental reasons. A plan would be very appreciated. Regards from the land of the kangaroo"
Heatwave FAI by Mick Green (?)

Found by Derick Scott - 28/07/2013 - notes: Courtesy of SAM_1066
Requested by Jeff - 26/07/2013 - who said: "Hi Steve, I have been looking for a plan for 'Heatwave' by Mick Green (I think). This was an FAI power model from C.1959 and may have been published in Aeromuddler. I built the model when I was a member of the Hornchurch club in company with the illustrious Ray 'Gadget' Gibbs whom I later came to assist during one or two attempts at the world speed record. I recall having great difficulty getting the motor to run on first flight so Ray stepped in and had it running almost instantly! He was rather disdainful of free flight models, particularly of the various appendages intended to increase performance. He was right of course, since my 'Heatwave' roared upwards in a tight spiral until OOS. And returned to earth more or less vertically to be smashed into a million pieces. I would like to try again. Best wishes,"

I have plans in the AMA Kit Plan book, but they are greatly reduced and would be pretty fuzzy enlarged to full size. So I'm putting out a plea..."
Ringtail twin-boom CL

Found by Derick Scott - 07/05/2013
Requested by GaryButton - 06/05/2013 - who said: "I am looking to find out if there is a Control Line plan of an Australian designed and built twin boomed twin finned constant cord winged model from (about) 1958 / 59 called 'Ringtail', it has an inverted engine. From memory it takes a 1.5 cc to 2.5 cc engine. My Father built one when I was about 8 years old. I never did get to see it fly. I do have a redrawn plan which is not the same layout, does look like the ringtail yet it is not an original plan or copy. I may be just going around in circles here; it would be nice to have a ringtail to join me."

Twenty Minute glider
Found by TonyFrench - 28/02/2013 - notes: This is available from Belair here: http://www.belairkits.com/subcategorylisting.asp?id=59
Requested by JohnNurse - 15/01/2013 - who said: "I am looking for the Twenty Minute glider plan. The original model was kitted by Premier just after World War 2. It had a 52.5" wingspan an elliptical fuselage formers and a spar less swept back wing with the ribs at 1" spacing. My late father built on for me and the performance was FANTASTIC. Obviously, free flight and we lost it 4 times. We had our name and address on it and it was returned on every occasion. My father paid the returner's 10 shillings on each occasion (50p). The kit price was 21 shillings. (£1.10p.) The original plan was a blue print. Perhaps you would be kind enough to use what ever methods you can use to secure it for me and other modellers. What I would do is to have it scaled up X 2 and build it for RC. It is and was a very beautiful model esthetically."
Carl Goldberg Models 'Eaglet 50'
Now online as (oz4192)
Found by jmd - 05/04/2013
Requested by Edubarca - 17/12/2012 - who said: "Although the most traditional and excellent Goldberg trainer was and still is the famous Falcon, he designed a rather simpler model called the Eaglet 50. It was done with lots of plywood parts for kit production because balsa in the USA has always been expensive. As with all Goldberg models, it was very attractive and flew beautifully. This plan has been, very, very hard to come by. By the way, Carl also enlarged the Eaglet 50 to 63 inches wingspan and a .40 glow engine which was very popular way back in the late seventies. "
Graupner Ultra Stunter, Graupner Super Stunter

Requested by petersom7 - 13/12/2012 - who said: "I recall the effortless performance of a Graupner model which some unknown fella brought to our control-line field one day back in about 1958(?) and tore holes in the sky, using a motor which we all felt was really just not enough for the job. I believe it was an Ultra Stunter; there was another similar model / kit, I am not sure of the name but it could have been a Super Stunter, The Ultra was 44" span for a 1.5cc glo or diesel, not enough..? Not so. It hung right out there and flew better than our Frog 500 and Sabre 29 jobs. But the Ultra was obviously very light. I am not having much luck searching for these plans or even pictures. I am now hoping you may be willing to publish a request to readers etc to contribute to our store of knowledge and send you the goods to add both of these neato Graupner models to Outerzone's list..."

Have looked for years for that plan thru old mags,and perhaps thru your great site, someone could help me find it again."
