About this Plan

Sterling Hellcat - Grumman Hellcat - Control line profile scale model, for .19 to .35 engines. Kit no S46. Quote: - "Sterling Hellcat, Gentlemen and Ladies, I had this plan scanned today!

Did I get something wrong with this plan? That happens a lot. Help me make a correction

Hi Steve, You may want to modify the classification of the Hellcat plan to include R/C as there is a note on the plan for a 3 channel Radio Control modification. As for the lack of rib drawings, just draw one from the profile and extrapolate the rest from there. Interesting little plane. I may have to build one for my OS 25.

Notes and Warnings

* 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, and confusingly, 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.
