About this Plan

Macchi M33 (1925). Scale model of the 1925 Schneider Trophy racer for free flight or radio control with 2.5cc motor, by Harold Towner. Plan is on 2 sheets, numbered Dwg 36.

Quote from plan text: "As this model was designed for radio, the pylon, wings and cockpit are removable in one unit, the front hatch giving access to fixing screws".

The tail surfaces are shown as hinged, but there are no further details of the radio installation.

    ScaleType: This (oz4280) 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.

Best to learn how to answer this for yourself. Then you have access to thousands of free plans you can use, without waiting for an answer from us. See the Knowledge Base page at KB 105: Checking the page size of a PDF plan for details.

If you're a fan of this model can I draw your attention to a cartoon from the famous Studio Ghibli called; "Porco Rosso" where the Macchi M3 plays a center role, it's still on Netflix.
In fact, Studio Ghibli has strong aviation connections, and to the Mitsubishi Zero. This is reflected in another Ghibli classic cartoon film "The Wind Rises" and is very anti-war. I think the term cartoon is an injustice to these masterpieces.

Anime would be the best word for Studio Ghibli works. The stories are fantastic, and the animation is great. Love this aircraft, too.

John... it has been my understanding for a while that the center role airplane in Porco Rosso is meant to be a Savoia S.21, not the Macchi M33, although they are quite similar.

The original Savoia s 21 was a biplane but it still served as the basis for Porco Rosso's plane... but as a monoplane...

* 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.
