  • 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.

Looks a bit like a B.A.C. Drone. Here's a pretty film I found, starting with the Dance Of The Pilot.

Hello. I practise model making since a long time ... the first glider I built was FF Aiglet (oz5345) in 1968... I am a French model maker, living 60 km north east of Lyon. You will discover here a few pictures of SFAN I [main pic, 003-007] my last realization among many others... Thanks for your attention, and long life to Outerzone!!

* 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.
