About this Plan

Bristol Brownie. Rubber scale model.

Quote: "A total of three Bristol Brownies were built in England during 1924. The configuration as shown on this drawing is thought to be that of the original; several later changes resulted in an altered appearance.

Of interest to scale fans in the fact that this airctaft featured adjustable dihedral! Registration numbers on the other brownies were G-EBJL and G-EBJM.

Entire model may be covered with lightweight tissue or condenser paper. A six inch diameter Paulowina propeller sanded to a thin section was used on the prototype mode."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Note photo of completed Bristol Brownie model was found online at build thread by Ascolta on RCgroups. This shows a slightly enlarged model, built from the Bill Hannan plan, but with wingspan of 36 inch.


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 (oz10983) 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.
    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.
