ScaleType: This (oz3208) 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/Lockheed_P-80_Shooting_Star
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.

User commentsBuilt a 28.5" span 40mm EDF version of the John Bell P80 Shooting Star [more pics 003, 004]. The plan was enlarged a bit with some changes to the wing construction/mounting and a 1/32" sheeted fuse, while the fuselage was built using the plan formers.

Hi ! How did you use the 132 sheet to cover the fuselage .It seems it is a very difficult job .I would appreciate it should you share your techniques . With best regards

I personally use the semitransparent baking paper (to save money), trace on it the quarter zone interested then transfer on balsa and cut it out. Wet the balsa piece if the curve is too tight and mantain in fuse position.

* 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.
