    ScaleType: This (oz3207) 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/Northrop_F-61_Black_Widow
    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.

I downloaded the recently posted plan of the Sterling Models Northrop P-61 Black Widow. It needed restoration so I decided to tackle it. The plan is now all on one sheet that keeps it as one file and can be printed out on a standard 36 inch ink jet printer as one long sheet. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the 'Widow' as my dad, a WW-2 U.S. Navy pilot, gave me a black hard rubber identification model of the 'Widow' to play with when I was four years old (1944). I still remember that model. Thanks for all of the hard work you do for us Steve!!!

* 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.
