About this Plan

Grumman F3F-1 - Scale model for control line. Quote: - "Our design spans a full 32in with the fuselage built on a basic crutch assembly, completely planked. A K&B .19 is the powerplant advised, windmilling a 9/6 Tornado prop. All surfaces including wood areas silked. The wing panles have a full break-away feature to simplify any flying damage." Direct submission to Outerzone.

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.
