    ScaleType: This (oz14243) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_Douglas_F-4_Phantom_II
    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.

This is the first time I’ve seen a chuck glider with chordwise grain in balsa wing and stab!
K K Iyer - 10/12/2022
The wood grain shown on the wing and tailplane is 90 degrees out. This would not phase an expert, but may confuse a beginner.

The designer probably submitted a sketch or "working plan" to the magazine for publication, and their graphics artist prepared a final, traced/inked version that had "wood grain" added for visual effect. Unfortunately it was drawn incorrectly for the wing and stab. It was fairly common to find small errors on hand-drawn plans, due to the 'artistic license' of the art department---such as misspellings, omitting dimension callouts, etc. An experienced builder takes all this in stride. Notice there is no thickness callout for the wing, but it can be inferred with common sense. On this particular plan, one would be hard pressed to find a sheet of balsa ~7 inches wide, since there is no mention of splicing sheets together!

Hi Folks. I knew Barry Mallett personally and he was an expert modeller so I would agree, the faulty grain direction shown on the plan would have been done in the last draft. Cheers,

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
