About this Plan

Hawker Typhoon. Rubber scale model. KK 150 series. Scale is 1/18.

Quote: "Hello Steve, I'm sending you a plan which I hope you may see fit to include in your listings. This is the Keil Kraft Hawker Typhoon. It was part of the company's first-ever range of WW2 kits, all made to 1/18th scale and designed by Albert E Hatfull between 1946 and 1950. In the late 1990s Doug McHard launched a campaign in Aeromodeller to try to track down the entire range, but only partially succeeded - maybe we'll have more luck in the Internet age? Outerzone already has the Fw-190 and Hawker Tempest from the same series, but there are several others unaccounted for, according to Doug's article included in the supplement file. They fly much better than Keil Kraft's more famous, but smaller and later, series of WW2 fighters. This is a blow-up of the plan as shown in Doug's article, made using the excellent tutorials on Outerzone. There is no printwood for this one, so I made allowance for the inclusion of a scale-width fuselage when sizing the plan for printing. It comes out as 27 inches span if one adds just over 2 inches for the width of the missing fuselage formers (the fuselage was 40 inches wide on the full-size machine) - which is spot-on. I also replaced all the hand-written text on the plan as it was almost illegible ....Regards,"

    ScaleType: This (oz5460) 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/Hawker_Typhoon
    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.

* 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.
