Update 20/03/2019: Added model photo courtesy of MikeKelly, with many thanks. This photo is from his RCGroups build thread at
which was part of the 2018 'Outerzone No Picture' (OZNoP) build-off organised by BMatthews, see RCGroups thread at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3111705 for more details.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz10066) 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/Foster_Wikner_Wicko
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 commentsAttached are pictures of the Wicko Wizard I recently built from plan 10066 [model photo & more pics 003-009]. This model was started as part of the "Outerzone No Picture" build-off in the Vintage & Old-Timer Designs forum on RC Groups, the build thread is at: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3159292. I completed the model after the build-off had ended. Finish on the model is printed Esaki tissue chalked white on the back side. It came out just over 44g without the rubber motor, and flew well right off the board. Best flight to date is 1:47 on a 10g trimming motor (2x20" loops 3/16" rubber). That flight was almost the demise of the model, as it narrowly missed being hit by a bus! Video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFcYkCw17YA. Thanks again for all you do to keep these plans available!

* 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.
