About this Plan

Pilot Mitsubishi Zero. Radio control scale model Japanese WWII fighter. Wingspan 52 in, wing area 425 sq in, for 19-35 power.

Quote: "Zero is the most famous Japanese Navy fighter of WWII. Pilot's kit is a 1/9 scale model of the Zero Type 22 (A6M3). Kit features neatly die cut ply wood parts, beautiful machined balsa parts, formed ABS plastic cowl, formed clear plastic conopy, plastic belly tank, dummy spinner, colored stickers, detailed instrument panel, 6 oz fuel tank, durable landing gear, full size plan and illustrated construction guide."

Planfile includes build instructions in English and Japanese.

Qiote: "Construction of the fuselage, wing and tail surfaces is easily accomplished. The fuselage framework can be accurately by inserting the longitudinal fuselage members and bulkheads into the notches in the plywood pieces. Use your favourite epoxy glue to adhere the members individually as you assemble the conmponent parts. The wing and stab are simlarly constructed using the plan as full size plan. Install the radio system as indicated on the full size fuselage drawings and the instructions provided with your radio. Spruce pushrods are included in the kit, as is the piano wire for servo and control surface attachment. Clevis are not provided in the kit and must be purchesed separately..."

    ScaleType: This (oz2908) 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.
    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.
