About this Plan

Airacobra. Control line scale model WWII fighter.

Quote: "A sleek C/L model of the Bell Airacobra, for 2 to 3.5 cc engines.

ALTHOUGH the Bell Airacobra was, in its time, considered to be a most unorthodox aeroplane, there is nothing unorthodox about the construction of its model counterpart. In fact, so straightforward is this latest addition to the MA plans range that we decided to forego the usual building notes and instead give some useful 'visual' gen on the scale appearance side of things.

Photo below shows Airacobra 43474 formating on a P-63 Kingcobra. Picture on the right is of an Aircobra in British markings, and the line drawing at the bottom of the page shows such a machine in detail.

This particular Airacobra, AH577, has the 601 Squadron code letters OF and the individual letter M. The dimensions of the markings shown relate, of course, to the full size machine and should be scaled down accordingly for the model. "

Direct submission to Outerzone.

    ScaleType: This (oz11672) 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.
