Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz3617) 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/Ansaldo_SVA
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 commentsThe Ansaldo SVA5 Italian bombing and recon aircraft of WWI. The original aircraft fuselage was constructed largely from plywood and quite robust. Although not as maneuverable as the Hanriots, Spads, and Nieuport fighters predominantly used by the Italians, it possessed a remarkable turn of speed for the era (147.9 mph), a service ceiling of 20,000 feet, and could remain aloft for 4 hours! With such abilities it was a natural for light bombing and photographic reconnaissance missions. It's ability to conquer the Alps into Germany and Austria played a significant role in the latter's eventual surrender in 1918.
Starting with the Sterling plan, I have reduced my model down to peanut scale [main pic, 003-006].
Thanks again, Steve and Mary!

* 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.
