Hawker P1121 (oz11464)
About this Plan
Hawker P1121. Free flight scale model for Rapier L2 power. Wingspan 10.5 in (266mm).
Quote: "The P1121 was deisgned by Sir Sydney Camm in 1957 as a strike fighter. Powered by a single Gyron or Olympus jet engine, it had a maximum design speed of Mach 2 and a zoom ceiling of 70,000 ft. Sadly the design never made it past the full size mock-up stage and,in the midst of government spending cuts, was abandoned in 1959."
Note this plan is a free download from Mike Stuart's most excellent FF scale site at http://www.ffscale.co.uk/plans13.htm
Quote: "The prototype came out at 25.1 grams, and has flown successfully on Rapier L2 power. Try to save weight at the rear because the model proved to need a fair amount of noseweight. Also, you might want to consider adding a little dihedral, as the model is a bit marginal as regards lateral stability."
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 (oz11464) 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_P.1121
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.
