About this Plan

ABC Robin - Scale model. The original Eddie Riding plan for the ABC Robin was published in July 1946 Aeromodeller, and was for rubber power, see oz6835. This later version of the plan is from September 1954 Aeromodeller, and is for diesel power (Allbon Dart). This later version includes more scale details.

Quote: - "For several seasons a steady favourite in Plans Service as a scale rubber model, the ABC Robin has also been the subject of many novel power conversions. One such successful model is that by American Bob Linn of Los Angeles, California, and in view of the more accurate detail he has provided, the existing APS design for a rubber design has been revised and the power conversion details added to make it a 'Two-for-one' plan..."

Update 15/06/2016: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy (patterned background removed), thanks to Pilgrim.

* 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.
