    ScaleType: This (oz10348) 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/Grumman_F4F_Wildcat
    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

I thought you may want to see some pictures of the Wildcat I built from those Wing Manufacturing plans I scanned and you have now posted [more pics 005-012]. This is a seriously crazy plane to build these days, I lost count of how many discreet pieces of balsa are involved here, but it is in the many hundreds. The fuse is glassed, the flying surfaces Monokote. The installed motor is a Saito .56. The only servos installed are two low profile ones on the ailerons. I looked at the MAN plans for the retracts and said..Meh! I bought a cowl and canopy from Mr. Andre', so I do have that, and some appropriate wheels, a dummy radial, a pilot and a few other bits it will take to finish her off. I did most of this work many years ago - you can plainly see I was building this in 2002. It's built just like an overgrown stick and tissue plane. I hope to someday actually fly this beast.

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.
