About this Plan

Aviette 1913. Peanut scale rubber model.

Quote: "1913 Aviette. French Bicycle Plane. Peanut model, designed and drawn by Tim Hayward-Brown. Originally appeared in the Australia 'FLY-IN' Scale News.

Tim's model employed a 4-1/2-inch diameter Peck-Polymers plastic propeller to help keep the weight forward. He also added metal ballast between the propeller and propeller shaft bearing, as shown on the drawing.

Regrettably, the designer/pilot of Tim Hayward-Brown's 1913 Aviette is unknown, and the model plan was based upon a single photo he found in The History of Man-Powered Flight, by DA Reay, 1977. The photo shows the machine whizzing along the ground quite nicely, but there's no daylight showing between tarmac and tires. Did it fly? Who knows? We do know that Tim's model flies well, and may be the simplest 'scale' Peanut ever published."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Note photo of completed model Aviette 1913 by Thayer was found online at http://www.gryffinaero.com/models/ffpages/models/ff2/aviette.html


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

  • NotFound | help

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new 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.
