About this Plan

Rumanian IAR 14 Pursuit. Scale rubber model from Flying Aces March 1936, by Elbert J Weathers.

Quote: "Military craft - that's what you model fans say you like best. Well, we landed a beaut for you here! This Rumanian Pursuit is one of the neatest jobs Flying Aces has ever offered. And it's a flying model that'll show you plenty of top-notch sky scooting. IAR-14 Pursuit, by Elbert J Weathers.

THIS model will prove unique wherever shown or flown - for it is a miniature of the pride pur-suit ship of that small country, Rumania. A speedy low-wing fighter, its prototype is produced by the IAR (Industria Aeronautica Romana) of Brasov. The power plant consists of a 650 hp Hispano-Suiza engine. The top speed of the plane is reported to be 225 mph, although the exact figure has not been released. The ship has a wingspan of 40.8 ft, while that of our model is 24-1/2 inches. Accuracy of design and detail is guaranteed by the author as it was built from factory drawings. The plans for the model are drawn full size.

Fuselage: Start the model with the fuselage by making two frames of 3/32 square balsa (medium hard). Notice the two slots built-in to take the wing stub spars. After these have been completed, build them to-gether as shown in top view of fuselage.

Next, select some hard 1/32 sheet balsa and make the fuselage formers, which are notched for 1/32 by 1/16 stringers. After they have been cemented in place, lay in the 1/32 by 1/16 balsa stringers, starting at the middle and working down each side. They should be of hard balsa, to avoid warping between formers. The next step is to cement the 1/32 medium sheet balsa..."

    ScaleType: This (oz2793) 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/IAR_14
    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.
