Hawker Tempest MkI - Radio control model for electric power. This is a modern-day plan, but the subject is an interesting vintage aircraft.
Quote: "Steve, When I started the build for the 1944 Fighter Glider last year, some of the guys on the RC Groups forum indicated that the inspiration for that aircraft was a Hawker Tempest Mk-1, designed by Sidney Camm. Only one was ever built. Indeed, the pictures on the Tempest website and on Wiki bear more than casual resemblance. That being said, I've picked the F/G's 'mother' (the Hawker Tempest Mk-1) for this years build contest (BBCC 3), and I've already started the build log at http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthre... To my knowledge the aircraft has never been kitted, though there is a conversion kit for a 1/48th scale static model. My goal was to pay tribute to the Mk-1 and still retain some of the charm and flight characteristics of the F/G. Here are the drawings if you'd like to post them, pdf's and the source drawing..."

Update 13/10/2013: Replaced this plan with a revised version, thanks to Old_Pilot.
Quote: "Steve, I've revised the plans to include more detail and plotted them on A1 sheets, with the exception of the printwood. Formers are easier to cut, and I solved the wing shoulder to fuselage mounting."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
