This plane is listed as a "Reno Racer"  I can't find anything on Outerzone. I'm sure somebody posted plans of it, or one very similar with the offset engine mount.
What do you think it is Called ? DO you have plans?

It looks like a Goodyear racer. Couldn't find same plane plan, but there is a similar one:

It can be drawn to suitable size plan.

Think this is a Polen Special. They were kitted by a guy named Dave Shipton outside the Chicago area.

The full scale one was a real speed demon.

Uliner has it right. This Polen Special was designed and kitted by Dave Shipton of Delavan, IL. Dave was best known as the designer of the SIG Deweybird, but kitted other of his designs himself, including this 1/2A Polen Special, and a .35 size version of the Deweybird.

Marleysky, yes I do have the plans.

Wow. Both planes look very nice. I like the whole 'hidden engine' concept. Do you have the plans in digital format, or just a paper copy? I looked earlier and all I had found was reference to a built up wing version, but a bit bigger, and a small free flight version.

Cool!! Do you want to sell, share, copy or reprint? I'd be interested. I probably could do a "TLAR" off the picture you attached, but prefer to use actual dimensions!!! Please let me know.

Marleysky, (or anyone who would like a copy) just PM me an Email address for a pdf copy. Give me a few days to get it scanned. Dave would be delighted to know his model was still being built and flown.

Duane,
You must have access to a large format scanner. Or will you scan sections and stitch together the pieces?

Plans have been sent to all who requested them.
Of course, they are all now obligated to post pictures of their completed models!  Very Happy
If anyone else would like a copy, let me know.
