Curtiss Hawk (oz3712)
About this Plan
Curtiss Hawk. Free flight profile scale model. Colourful pursuit ship. 28in span all-sheet model for .049 cu ins power. Article text included.
Quote: "Poised for action, a pair of prototype Hawks await a flip of the prop before zooming up and away on yet another mission. Colourful decoration of the P6E or P1D variants adds to the charm of this simple design. Both models use a DC Quickstart Merlin. Lighter engines may need a longer nose to achieve same balance."
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 (oz3712) 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/Curtiss_P-6_Hawk
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 commentsA couple of photos of my Curtiss Hawk built in April 1974 from the Aeromodeller plans [main pic, 003]. It never flew much - other than some test glides. It looked very cool, but I was probably afraid to fly it, having lost my freeflight Breezy (oz528) in a flyaway years earlier. The Cox Babe Bee .049 is a great little engine, but there's no reliable way (without modifications) to regulate the run time - as needed for freeflight IC models.

* 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.
