    ScaleType: This (oz14432) 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/Curtiss_Falcon
    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.

A pretty restoration of the 90yo plan of a pretty airplane. Thank you, Roger, nicely done!

Miguel, I cannot take credit for restoring this set of plans. I found it on eBay (along with a few others) a few months ago and sent the scans to Steve where someone else (Steve?) put the scans together and cleaned them up. Who ever piece together the scans and cleaned them up did a phenomenal job, I agree!
RogerB - 12/03/2023
Aw, yes that was me. They were good clean scans, high res too, really the time taken was just to align and piece together the (12, I think?) A4 sections together.

Steve, to align and piece together scans is harder than it appears sometimes (at least for me). Especially when the scans are not straight or when the scans are not scaled the same in the X or Y direction. I know I have tried to piece together some of the scans I sent you and have had a tough time with a few. I do want to thank you and Mary for having this portal for plans and to let you know that I really appreciate the time you and others who piece together these plans for all of us to enjoy. Thanks!

I see, Roger, you're the philanthropist who coughed up in order to bring this plan to us, while Steve gave out of his precious time to raise this 12-piece puzzle to such dazzling height! Time being generally accepted as money, both may be construed as equivalent in merit :)

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.
