About this Plan

YAK-12M. Free flight scale model for .049 power.

Quote: "The YAK-12M was a 1955 development of the 1947 Russian YAK-12 military liaison and civil aviation plane. It was a very flexible 4-place radial-engine high-wing aircraft, capable of being fitted with trainer dual controls, ambulance stretcher, or crop spraying gear.

Hurst Bowers' model is a 37 in span free-flight rendition. No propulsion is shown or noted, but my guess is he intended an .049 engine. He dated the plan February 1960, but I don't know whether it was ever built. This pencil drawing was found among his effects after he passed away on 15 December, 2004."

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 (oz12041) 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/Yakovlev_Yak-12
    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.

Do you have a photo you'd like to submit for this page? Then email admin@outerzone.co.uk

A bigger, oomphier outgrowth of the Storch for a quartet. Slightly better looking than that ghastly Criquet.

* 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.
