    ScaleType: This (oz5522) 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/Heinkel_He_162
    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.

Note this one looks to be slightly out of scale - thanks to DerrickScott for checking - the wingspan measures 60in, but the title block says it is a 56in plan.

The difference in wingspan is due to the angled wingtip on the finished model and the tip shown flat (for true shape) in the elevation wing plan. It is all correct, to me.

Ah, thanks Pit, of course - that makes sense. Correct at 56in span, then.
SteveWMD - 17/09/2017
Well the plan may print correctly, however the Scale accuracy is way off. Wings, as immediate example, are much longer than they are in real life

Yes. It's a sport-scale model. So that is standard procedure.

* 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.
