About this Plan

Supermarine Mk1 Attacker. Scale model for Jetex 150 with augmenter tube. MAN March 1953 by Robert Buragas.

Quote: "The Jetex 150 with augmentor tube opens a new field of jet scale free flight. These are full size plans. The Supermarine Attacker by Robert Buragas.

Many of us are finding out that the 'mother lode' of flying fields is petering out, making it necessary to season our diet of contest models with the spice of more colorful, sporty model types for use on smaller fields. One of the leading possibilities for a new and interesting type of modelling is the flying scale jet model. Today's Jetex 150 with augmentor tube is an ideal powerplant and, added to the British Navy's Supermarine Attacker jet fighter, will give you much enjoyment both building and flying.

Before starting, it is necessary to cement the plan halves together. Study these plans carefully so that you understand the location of the principal parts. Mark out the various parts on balsa following the outlines shown on the plan.

Start your model by building the fuselage. The construction is simple though it looks elaborate on paper. Follow the heavy black lines to build the basic fuselage sides using 1/8 square balsa for material. Note that there is no upright at the very rear of the fuselage. Having constructed two of these sides, fill in the front sections with 1/8 sheet. When this is dry, you will be ready to assemble the two sides into a box. Since the fuselage is built around the augmentor tube you will need to double the inner surfaces of the uprights at stations six and ten. Use 1/8 square for this and note the slot which is left for the augmentor tube flange.

Place the augmentor tube between the fuselage sides so that the augmentor tube flanges rest in the slots at stations six and ten. Drawings for the crossbraces are shown on the plan between the drawings for the top and bottom formers. Use the large crossbrace for all of the stations from four back to ten. The smaller crossbrace is used at station one and the others are cut to fit. When the basic box is finished, the augmentor tube will be sticking out of the sides. Since the side formers are wider than the overhang of the bell-shaped funnel, there will be plenty of clearance in the finished structure.

A small section between station three and the rear of the air intake block should be filled in with 1/16 sheet. Two air intakes blocks should be cut out of 3/8 sheet and cemented in place at this point. Add the side formers but not the stringers.

Cement the top and bottom formers in their proper locations. The upper former between stations three and four is the same as the number four fomer..."

    ScaleType: This (oz2808) 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_Attacker
    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.

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.
