About this Plan

Bristol Scout. Peanut scale rubber Bristol Scout published in Flying Models, December 1971.

Quote: "The Bristol Scout, also known as the 'Bullet,' has long been a favorite of model builders. This model was designed with the new AMA provisional Peanut Scale event in mind. Peanut Scale is limited to models with a span of 13 inches or less. The color scheme is from the book Fighters 1914-19 by Kenneth Munson. Check Profile #139 for alternate color schemes and markings.

Fuselage Cut the 1/32 fuselage sides from light quarter-grain sheet. Notice that the sides extend forward to the rear face of former B. Glue the 1/16 square vertical stiffeners and 1/32 sheet rear motor peg reinforcement to the inside of the fuselage side pieces. Join the sides, inverted over the top view, with former C and the 1/16 square cross members at stations D and F.

Check alignment while the glue dries. Glue the rear ends together, again checking alignment carefully. Add the remaining 1/16 square cross members to the rear of the fuselage. Now remove the fuselage assembly from the building board and glue the 1/16 x 1/8 center-section struts to the inside of the fuselage sides, using the fuselage side view as a guide for alignment. Careful positioning of the struts at this point will make top wing alignment easy..."

    ScaleType: This (oz1494) 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
    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.

* 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.
