About this Plan

Heinkel He46. Radio contol scale model. Wingspan 60 in, for OS 52 FS engine.

Note this is an enlarged version of the 1992 David Boddington 47 inch Heinkel He46 C1 (oz15186) plan. This here is a later redrawn version by hogal, scaled up to 60 inch wingspan, in vectorPDF format.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "...I liked the model that much I also built a larger copy of it, 60 in span. Plans are also attached. Cheers, Al"


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz15192) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinkel_He_46
    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 always had a tear in my eye for the Boddington He 46, recently shown here as oz15186. I remember receiving it as an enclosed plan in my RCSA subscription. Later on, I kept postponing it and so much else due to the constant demands of that thing called Life.
In quick succession, I had the pleasure of seeing the aforesaid plan, and now this completely unexpected Hogal masterpiece. I was blown over! And then the Vector PDF was the cherry on top!
So my thanks to the OZ Dynamic Duo, and to all those credited and uncredited who brought this to light :)

Still, I never liked those eggbox wing structures, they look like they are going to splinter at the first strain. And to manually cut ribs to accommodate those slots is what the Gulag was invented for!
Behold the I-Beam Spar! One flange above, one flange below, and a shear web to keep separation and integrity of the assembly. If cutting accurate shear webs is a pain, two webs stuck to the front and back faces of the flanges will do the same, making it a box spar.
This is the reason God gave us 1/4" x 1/8" spruce sticks, right?

* 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.
