Luton Minor (oz10024)
About this Plan
Luton Minor LA4. Peanut scale rubber model.
Quote: "This model was scaled from the Aeromodeller drawings, with slightly increased tail areas and non-scale dihedral. "
Plan includes detailed notes on construction, covering and finishing, assembly, trimming and flying. Also colour scheme and scale references.
Quote: "Attached is a scan of the Peanut Scale Luton Minor kit from Andrew Moorhouse. I built this back in the early '80s when the kit was available from Peck-Polymers. I remember that the kit had excellent balsa, and was a good flyer. My original model is long gone, but I will send you a photo if I build a new one. This is my first attempt at scanning a plan and assembling the pieces in Photoshop. I don't have any way to print it out tiled, so I don't know if the scaling is correct. I hope you can use it. "
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 02/04/2021: Added printwood scan, also patterns page, thanks to AdrianCulf.

ScaleType: This (oz10024) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luton_Minor
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsSome photos of my Peanut Scale Luton Minor built from Outerzone plans [main pic, 003,004]. It's a fine flyer, but a challenge to trim. Flying photos by Peter Smith.

* 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.
