About this Plan

Hawker Hurricane II. Scale control line fighter model, from Model Aircraft, March 1955.

Quote: "A control line model of the famous World War II fighter by Paul Mansfield.

This model is very happy on 50-60ft lines, and 60-65mph is obtainable with the Frog 500. Though some fliers may prefer to use heavy Laystrate, this adds weight and lessens performance somewhat; the three strand wire is quite satisfactory. Flying over tarmac or concrete is not recommended, and though the drop-out undercarriage works swell on fairly smooth surfaces, hand launch should be employed when taking off from long grass or rough ground.

The flaps obviate much of the mushing and high speed stalls to which this type of model is prone, and the Hurricane is by no means a difficult ship to fly. Emphasis has been laid on scale rather than stuntability, and although the model is not in the running for the Gold Trophy, wingovers are quite simple, and loops and bunts and inverted flying may be undertaken by an experienced pilot."

    ScaleType: This (oz2952) 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/Hawker_Hurricane
    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.
