Direct submission to Outerzone.
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 (oz12333) 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/Grumman_J2F_Duck
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.

User commentsIf you want a mental setting for this model, you could do worse than watching "Murphy's War". A 1971 film directed by Peter Yates, with Murphy being played by a raging Peter O'Toole. The flying scenes were done by Frank Tallman, who had restored the J2F himself.
We're lucky Po'T didn't die at the end of Lawrence of Arabia (at the beginning actually, but you get the point), or we wouldn't have this film.

On the other hand, the public and critics would have been spared from the O'Toole's performance in Macbeth at the Old Vic nearly a decade later... Reportedly, not one of his best moments.
Just kidding... Just a small bump on the road in the illustrious career of a grand actor.

I know, Sir John Gielgud's ghost had already told me so in a dream. But you leave me worried, you know things are not to be mentioned, doors not to be opened, names not to be named. If you please exit the site, spin around three times, spit, curse, and then log back in.

Yikes, my bad... Will do! It might be to late though, as unholy things seem to already be happening. Last night, I tried to access Oz, only to find out that the server had crashed for the umpteenth time. At this point, Mary and Steve performing an exorcism might be the only solution.

* 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.
