About this Plan

Sopwith Triplane - scale fighter from Veron.


Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

Hi - just building a replica of this kit from Vintage Models and your plan looks great. BUT there is an error on the original plan that make it impossible to build without reducing the lengths of the lower rear fuselage cross members (shown beneath the cockpit fairing) and the corresponding error on the upper wing centre section which is also too wide. The original designer took the lengths from the vertical members on the side view instead of the width of the fuselage as it narrows towards the tail. I'm sure anybody who is actually prepared to build it will realise, as I did, that it is wrong. Perhaps a little note with the download could help before any time or work is wasted.

Thank you Ray, a very helpful observation. Be warned folks!

* 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.
