    ScaleType: This (oz476) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seversky_P-35
    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.

I built from a Golden Age Reproductions kit of this plan, changing only a few details to make it into the S2 Racer, which was basically the same plane. Fuzzy picture here: http://www.gryffinaero.com/models/ffpages/ffgallery/rosssev/rosssevs21.jpg It was a great flyer once I hinged the rudder so it could flop around. This wouldn't be good indoors as the circle is a bit erratic. Before I hinged the rudder, it would dive to one side or the other. I think when everything was tuned up I would get about a minute in still air. The nose as drawn could use some beefing up.

Why model this relatively obscure little aircraft, Comet Model’s Seversky Pursuit (oz476) from 1939? If we call it obscure, it certainly wasn’t during the mid-1930’s. How about it being a three-time winner of the Bendix Trophy as well as attaining numerous other speed records. Add to that an appearance as star of the silver screen with the likes of Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy featured as its fantasy pilots. It was very much before the public eye by the time it assumed its military career, the first all-metal fighter aircraft with a retractable landing gear in the U.S. Army Air Corps inventory. Alas, by the outbreak of war in the Pacific it was already obsolete, but nevertheless participated against desperate odds during the disastrous defense of Luzon Island. Its legacy was no less significant, leading to the development of the P-47 Thunderbolt. Model represents an aircraft of the 17th Pursuit Squadron operating from Luzon Island, Philippines, 1941 [main pic, 004-008].

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
