    ScaleType: This (oz1188) 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/Heath_Parasol
    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.

Arguably the most popular home-built aircraft in the world during the mid-1920’s to mid-1930’s was the Heath Parasol. For a mere $200 (a considerable sum in those times), the Heath Aeroplane Company, Chicago, Illinois would send a kitted aircraft, complete with a 20 hp B-4 Henderson motorcycle engine. As can be imagined, the kit-builder often availed himself of the opportunity to incorporate his own interpretation into the final aircraft configuration. His future was in his hands, literally.
Comet Models gave their own due diligence to the vintage craze by marketing a model of the Heath LNB-4 (oz1188) in what has become known as “dimer scale,” a 16” wingspan. A tiny aircraft with an overly large wing area, my model is finished in a scheme recommended on the Comet plan [main pic, 003-008]. The little Heath will not wreck your budget, being a definite conservation of materials, and besides, the ladies say it’s cute. I think it looks a bit like a little parakeet bird and flies accordingly.
Thanks to OuterZone, Steve and Mary.

* 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.
