About this Plan

KK Hawker Hurricane. 19.5" span flying scale rubber.

Quote (from conversion article): "But now, at last, we have the perfect power plant, the Cox Tee-Dee .010 - light - only 0.6 oz with tank; compact - look at these photographs, giving ample power - but very easy to start with the built in starter spring.

There are at present no kits specifically designed for the Tee-Dee, but the conversion of suitably proportioned rubber kits presents very few problems. I proved this by taking a 4s 2d Keil Kraft 20in wingspan Hawker Hurricane, which I knew flew well as a rubber job, and modified the structure, where necessary, to take the engine.

Several alterations were made during construction, with a view to strengthening the airframe and improving scale appearance, and these are all noted in this article. All new parts necessary to adapt the model for Tec-Dee power are drawn full size opposite and, together with the accompanying photographs and the photograph of the completed model on the cover, you should find no difficulty in producing your own miniature Hurricane.

Building: The first step is to cut out the nose side view from page 238 and lay it over the Keil Kraft plan, carefully lining up the stringers and formers (see Photo 1). Since we are using an engine, we are able to make the nose shape more accurate than the original rubber kit, so to correctly align the two drawings, lay a ruler along the stringer marked 'Centre Stringer' and accurately line it up with the corresponding stringer on the plan. Build the left fuselage shell on the plan in the normal way..."

Update 25/11/11: This plan now includes printwood scan.

Update 05/01/2016: Added supplement files of IC conversion article with drawings.

    ScaleType: This (oz1363) 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
    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.

Good morning Mary and Steve, Thanks ever so much for running Outerzone. It is like Christmas every day viewing the site, and planning what to build next. I have made the main wheels for the L6 and am in the process of building both wing sizes for Vic Smeed's Tomboy. I have had to move the Tomboy construction out to the garden shed because I was taking over the front room and my wife needed some room as well for her lace making etc. We have a disabled son, Andrew, who lives with us, and when my wife is at her part time job I cannot work on models in the shed, and remain with Andrew indoors. I decided the answer was to build small models indoors, and downloaded the plan for the KK Hurricane, being only 19.5 " or 20" span depending on which article you read. I decided to go for the 20" span, and assume the 19.5" is the span after dihedral is added. I put the plan through Posterazor and printed it off, as well as the printed wood sheet. I used R1 as a reference, and both the printed wood R1 and plan R1 are the same size, so I am assuming everything else is OK. Last night I printed off the print wood drawings and pasted them on to a sheet of 1/16", pasting a plain sheet of paper on the other side of the balsa and then leaving the sheets to dry out overnight pressed flat under my plaster board building board. I cut the parts out this morning and it was a real joy to do. The last time I cut out printed wood parts must be over 60 years ago, and I remembered all the times the wood would split as the cut and the grain were not aligned. Having the print wood paper pasted on the balsa has made it very simple and accurate to cut the parts out and with no accidental damage. Made my day. I keep thinking of what the next model will be after the Hurricane. I will attach the Hurricane sheets for your interest. If you spot any errors, please let me know. Thanks again for all your efforts in keeping Outerzone going. All the best. Best regards,

Morning Mary and Steve, I am building the KK Hurricane, and just reached the point of putting the stringers on the fuselage formers. A bit confusing without a second plan to look at, as the plan detail is covered over with balsa wood, so I have taken a photo of how the first stringers are positioned [more pics 004]. Looking forward to flying this in my local park. Best regards,

* 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.
