About this Plan

Hawker Fighter. Rubber scale model WWII fighter.

Quote: "Building the Hawker Single Seater Fighter. How You Can Create a Flying Model of Britain's Latest Fighter From the First Plans of it Ever Published. [Hawker Hurricane], by William Winter.

EVERY Englishman is keenly alive to the potential horrors of a future air raid. Since necessity is the mother of invention, the famous interceptors have been evolved. They are built for tremendous speed and climbing ability. It is their military mission to nip any threat in the bud.

The new sensational Hawker is a low-wing monoplane of cantilever construction powered with a Rolls Royce 'Merlin'. The undercarriage is retractable. Naturally, wing flaps are incorporated in the design.

One glance at this latest British creation would justify an estimate of three hundred miles an hour. Although all data has been withheld, it is knowingly said that the horsepower is probably one thousand.

The model has been worked out right down to the retractable landing gear. The constructitand method employed, by using four master stringers cut from sheet balsa, enables an accurate frame to be built with minimum effort and time.

Fuselage. Trace the top, bottom and sides of the fuselage on 1/16 in sheet. Cut each master stringer thus traced about 3/16 wide. After cutting, mark on them the positions of the bulkheads. The bulkheads are also cut from 1/16 stock. The four main notches cut for the master stringers are 3/16 deep. Before attempting to cut all the notches shown, it is essential that their positions be accurately marked. Place the two side master stringers in place on the widest bulkheads.

When the cement has set, locate the remaining bulkheads. Check the alignment before cementing the remaining stringers in portion. All auxiliary stringers are 1/16 sq. The rudder post is 1/8 sq and supports the rear hook of .028 wire. The pilot's enclosure is a framework built up of 1/16 sq. A small former, the pattern of which is given, forms the rearmost piece of the enclosure. A pattern is also given to be used in making the small 1/16" internal former that is located at BB..."

    ScaleType: This (oz10714) 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/Hawker_Hurricane
    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.

* 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.
