About this Plan

Gloster Javelin. Scale jet fighter for Jetex 50 motor. Wingspan 15 in.

Update 09/05/2014: Replaced this plan with one at corrected scaling, thanks to aeromeddler.

Update 29/11/2021: Replaced this plan (again) with one at corrected scaling, thanks to DaveC.

Planfile includes full build instructions.

Quote: "Pin the plan to a small wooden building board and cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper.

Fuselage: Pin pieces A, B, F and H, and the strips of 3/16, 1/16 and 1/4 x 1/16 directly over the plan. Note the 'anti-warp' strip which is set on edge; see sketch labelled 'First step in building fuselage'. Refer to this sketch while pinning parts in place. Cement all joints...

    ScaleType: This (oz1016) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloster_Javelin
    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 comments

Hi Steve, the wingspan of the Javelin is about 15", but it's difficult to tell from the plan as the wing panels are spaced apart at a different distance. The way I scaled my plan was from the tailplane span [correct tail span being 126mm]. The old adage of measure twice and cut once is as true as ever! I've attached some photos of my completed model [main pic, 004-006], which I did as the prototype as even the first production aircraft had the cranked wing LE and a clear canopy for the radar operator, rather than the 'black hole' of the first aircraft. Feel free to use the photos if you think they're acceptable enough. Not had chance to fly it yet, have to wait until the warmer weather next year. Weight with a used rapier L2 motor is 31.5 gms, so should be OK. Many thanks for a truly great web site, I'm not surprised your so busy, it's a wonderful resource and a great inspiration. Kindest regards,
Dave Causer - 29/11/2021

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
