About this Plan

Tiger Moth. Radio control scale model biplane. Wingspan 44 in, wing area 552 sq in, for OS 20 four stroke engine and 4 channels.

Note this plan consists of the original pencil drawings by Alan Wooster, submitted to Outerzone directly by the designer, himself. This design also later appeared in FM, Oct 2006.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi Steve, Further to recent correspondence, please find attached 3 pics of the Tigermoth. These photographed on the driveway today. This model is now a good 16 years old as shown here and no longer flown. I intend to hang it up in the workshop as an ornament, when I get around to it.

Couldn't resist adding the pic of the 'Honeypuffs Tigermoth' [see pic 004]. This is an authentic colour scheme as temporarily applied to ZK-BUO for a TV commercial. This was my first 'serious' scale model - built late 1970's? It was based in the old 70 in span CAP plan. It scored 3rd place in NZ Nationals around that time and later one of four models in the Trans Trasman scale series at the time - we beat the Aussies!

I flew this model in rally events for several years and when eventually pensioned off it was hanging in the kids' ward at New Plymouth Hospital for several more years. The kids loved it. Cheers, Alan"

    ScaleType: This (oz13197) 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/De_Havilland_Tiger_Moth
    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.
