    ScaleType: This (oz10273) 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
    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.

Hi. I just discovered your plan site and I loved it. Attached are some photos of my Marutaka Zero [main pic, 004-006]. Cheers,

OMG, thank you for posting my photos. It's one of the first balsa kits I've every built and although it was like feeling my way around in an unknown territory, I enjoyed building it every step of the way. It flew great, and is now hanging on the wall waiting to be flown again.

The pictures clearly show how much you enjoyed building and, obviously, also finishing this and the other models. Thanks for sharing them, they make me want to build one of these kits, too .

Thanks Hubert. I put quite a lot of time into building it: flaps, retractable sprung-main and tail gear, and muffler crammed inside the cowl with OS 10LA in it. It was one of my first balsa kits and I was surprised to see how the flimsy bulsa parts gradually build up into a solid and quite hard fuselarge and wings. I miss the days I could spend so much time doing it. Someday again...

Hi, I had a canopy to one of these Royal kits, but that was it. Overjoyed to find the plan on Oouterzone for download. Pic of finished model [007]. Traditional tissue n dope for the fuselage and nylon for the wing. No gear to save weight, and trusty Enya .09 for ballast. Keep up the good work,

* 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.
