About this Plan

Auster Alpine. Rubber scale cabin model.

Quote: "Full size plans for an 18 inch span rupper=pwered model of the Auster Alpine.

Chosen by the Automobile Association for aerial survey work to assist their road patrols, the Auster Alpine makes an attractive model for exhibition or flying. The AA colour scheme is detailed on the smaller drawing, finish being AA yellow and black.

Plans given on the following two pages are full-size and show alternative wing construction. The port wing drawing shows scale rib and riblets positions which can be followed in making an exhibition model. This wing works out on the heavy side for a flying model so for that purpose the wings should be constructed on the more open framework detailed on the plan, using 1/16 ribs.

Fuselage sides are cut from very light 1/16 in sheet to the outline shape. The position of the formers should be marked accurately and the sides assembled on formers 2a and 3 firts, noting that they will have to be pinned in place to conform to the top and bottom taper. When set, the sides can be aligned and cemented tohether at the rear...

    ScaleType: This (oz3257) 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.
