    ScaleType: This (oz163) 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/Supermarine_Spitfire
    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

I have an obvious affection for Comet Model designs. That's where my roots began in this hobby many decades ago. Here's another design from Comet's 1941 catalog, the dime-scale Spitfire (oz163) [main pic, 003-006]. It's an easy build which stays true to the beautiful lines of the original aircraft.
The model is a salute to Ernest Derek 'Dave' Glaser, who joined No.65 Squadron RAF three days prior to the official commencement of the Battle of Britain. He was a very young and inexperienced 19-year-old Pilot Officer who ultimately ended the War as a Squadron Leader while holding various commands. Squadron Leader Glaser passed away not long ago at the age of 80...one of "The Few."
Thank you, Steve and Mary for so many opportunities to build.

Well .... a model artist's job ... well done the artist ;-) As usual, a perfect job ... realism, finesse of the construction ... a real pleasure for the eyes ;-) Olivier

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.
