That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz13723) 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/AB_Flygindustri_Fi-1
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 commentsThe caption says this is actually a scale model of a Swedish sailplane. The only aircraft of Scandinavian origin and similar layout that comes to my mind is the Finnish PIK-5. Anybody knows more of this?

The plane in question is the Fi-1 built by AB Flygindustri in Halmstad around 1944/1945. The only remaining plane of this type can be seen at the Swedish glider museum in Ålleberg. Best regards,

The Pik-5 is from Finland. I think the one referred to here is the AB Flygindustri Fi-1. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AB_Flygindustri_Fi-1 and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fi-1_svenskt_konstruerat_segelflygplan_PTV.jpg

* 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.
