ScaleType: This (oz3943) 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/Luscombe_8
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 commentsHi Steve, This is a super plan to have. Thanks to yourself and to EJ. Be advised that the plan and parts sheets are correct, but the instructions are for the small KK Luscombe Silvaire rubber model (the famous 3/6, then 3/8 and later 3/9 series that filled my life in the late forties!). The price changes mentioned were due to purchase tax changes, not KK prices. If fact, for the old 'uns like me, you can tell the guy's age by whether he calls these kits 3/6, 3/8 or 3/9! (shillings and pence of course!). Best regards,
Brian - 28/01/2013

* 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.
