    ScaleType: This (oz14480) 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/Thunderbirds_machines
    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.

I kind of feel there should be a Wikipedia page to link to for this. Not found.

Maybe https://thunderbirds.fandom.com/wiki... Steve?

Nice. It's my own fault, sadly I built the ScaleType system so it only links directly to pages on Wikipedia. Another question: does anyone have photo of this actual peanut model? I'd love to see that.
SteveWMD - 05/04/2023
Lovely, lovely lovely! Does this hover too?
Miguel - 05/04/2023
Nice... Certainly the coolest of the "Thundies"... Now, how about an Angel Interceptor from the Capt. Scarlet series? If done in 1:32 scale it would be peanut scale and go about 93 mph to boot... Anyone?

Aha. Got it. Have set the ScaleType now, thanks.

Something about a flying slope soarer version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiA28RYbI5c&t=26s

just a more scale like lifting body: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HBTvd78Geo

I think I saw that John Stennard do a quadcopter based version for indoor (in his RCM&E column), but can't trace it. Or I may be delusional! 8-)

Quadcopter article in Autumn 2016 Special of RCM&E, some videos of test version on youtube. Pit

Hello Steve and Mary, Have just come across the page on the "Thunderbird 2" peanut scale model. Please find attached a number of photos [main pic, 003-007]. Pretty sure that both the model and the photos are by Kaz Suzuki himself... Kind regards,

Ah, fantastic. I have been wanting for ages to see a pic of the finished model. Very tidy work.
SteveWMD - 25/06/2023
It certainly is! Look at photo 006, how the main body stringers flare in, and the outer ones intercept with the ones in the 'motor nacelle' tube. The overlapping transparent propellers are a fantastic idea!
Having a detachable nose must be a good idea as well, I suppose a few landings won't be like what the book says!

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.
