    ScaleType: This (oz1626) 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/Farman_F.1000
    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.

User comments

Comet Kit A4 1936 Farman Stratoplane (oz1626), also known as the Farman F.1000, was one of a kind... the actual aircraft being an attempt at a world altitude record during the early 30's. Seems the F.1000 was a test bed, reaching a mere 16,000'... then modified into a parasol version, the F.1001... which proved fatal for the pilot... although it did attain an altitude of 32,000'. Crash was due to a window bursting... rapid decompression... oops.
Model is of classic dime-scale genre, 16” wingspan with plenty of area to render its design into a very nice flyer [main pic, 003-007].
Thanks OuterZone!

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.
