    ScaleType: This (oz5145) 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/Yakovlev_Yak-3
    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.

A beautifully simple Koutny design, the Yakovlev Yak-3 (oz5145) was a favorite with the Red Air Force...great speed, highly maneuverable, and easily maintained in the field. I've reduced it to peanut scale and produced a virtually indestructible fun flyer [main pic, 003-005]. Propeller is constructed from vinyl pill bottle plastic. Thanks Steve and Mary for everything you give us from Outerzone.

Hi Steve! Being the stickler for OZ perfection that you are, this Yak-3 plan can be found in the September 1972 issue of Modelar...along with a Spitfire plan by L. Koutny as well!! Super Site Steve!!

* 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.
