    ScaleType: This (oz2194) 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.

From Comet Model Airplanes 1943 catalog Kit A39, the German Arado (oz2194) has a 16” wingspan and originally retailed for the price of one dime. This model [main pic, 003, 004] features a “plug-in” landing gear and color scheme as presented by Kenneth Munson in his aircraft guidebooks. Civil registration is from the small initial pre-war production batch.
Thank you, Steve and Mary, for another great vintage plan from Outerzone.

Another beautiful build of one of my favorite aircraft, but I notice the Comet plan doesn't feature the wing notch in the trailing edge near the fuselage.

Thanks Jan…the Arado certainly is a bright canary, isn’t she. I have to confess that when I constructed her (way back) I was thinking in terms of how it would lend itself to a simplified RC build…say doubled to 32” ws. In that vein I substituted sheet sides (with lightening holes)…which as it proved, was hardly worth the effort for a rubber-powered model of that size. The Arado is much like the DH Chipmunk…simple basic lines…the larger it is, the better it will perform. The empennage is perfect…rudder and elevator are easy to construct and setup…won’t “interfere” with each other. Note the wing is constructed as a single unit and has a saddle as opposed to the kit-designed butt-joint attachment. Truth is…today, rubber-powered, I’d build it exactly as Comet designed it. Still…would really lend itself well to a standoff-scale RC model…larger of course.

* 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.
