ScaleType: This (oz3235) 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/Auster_Aiglet_Trainer
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 commentsAs most (read: almost all) of its contemporary models, the Auster was capable of stable flight - a necessity with the still failure-prone single channel R/C eqipment, and as such could naturally also be flown as a freeflight model. It was however designed by KH Denzin as a R/C model from the outset - and proved to be a very good one!

Found some nice build log photos of the Auster Aiglet model here : http://www.mf-inchenhofen.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=64

Hi, Here is a pic of the Graupner Taxi, rebuilt from your plans [main model pic]. Fitted with an electric motor. Kind regards,

Hi Steve and Mary, here is a picture [pic 005] and the catalog pages [see supplement file] of my Hegi Auster with original Hegi floats (oz3235).
The model was build from scratch about six years ago, the floats are from the original Hegi kit. I never flew it from water, but it will fly from snow really well. A great airplane with wheels or floats. Well worth building it.

The forementioned link of the buildlog (by SteveWMD august 2012) is not correct anymore.
Here is the new (and proper) one:

* 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.
