Hi Gregory
Pleased to meet you:D
Thats a hard one to answer, as the term "Vintage" has different meanings to different people
Imho Vintage aircraft are from the eras of the late 1930s to the early 1980s
Take care
Yours Hank

It is very subjective. Its not like cars which can be classified as antique when they reach a certain age. I personally consider anything from before my birth as vintage. For those keeping score that is anything from mid sixties and older.
Yet do a search on ebay and vintage can mean from 10 years ago.
It is whatever you want it to be.

If its an Automoble its 25 years to be antique,not sure on a RC airplane.I did sell some years ago that would be Vintage or antique today.Have a Good one.Dean

Personally, I think anything before 1980 as some still have copyright issues. However, anything before 1960 is almost far game. Also long forgotten companies as someone, somewhere will have a copy of there designs. It takes a lot of work to restore some of these designs and there are now quit a few people involved in the preservation and restoration of these designs.

As these designs are being presented over at the other place, both Steve ( The Outerzone ) and I are trying to catch up and load our websites with these designs. In early December last year, I started to rebuild StarCadPlans.Net to include these designs. It is slow work as I am the only one doing my site, but I have the pleasure of knowing how it is being done as does Steve. We both feel the same in the direction of presenting these designs as a free service to the modeling community.

All of the designs we present can also be downloaded from this thread, Vintage & Old-timer Designs .

To get a good idea of what this whole project is about please visit The Vintage RC Society (VR/CS) for more information.

If you have designs that qualify and have access to a scanner, please scan them in gray scale at least 600 dpi and start posting.

Also take a look at:
http://www.outerzone.co.uk/vinplandex/
where Steve has an index of the plans posted in the RCG Vintage and Old Time Designs Plan thread that links back to the page the plan was posted in. The first link that Starcad listed for
http://www.outerzone.co.uk/
also has a searchable database but you can download the plan from there.

Hope you find the 2 sites useful.
