About this Plan

Noorduyn Norseman IV. Free flight scale model, for ST-2 electric motor.

Quote: "In doing the initial design work for the model, I was fortunate to have the assistance of Mr Robert H Noorduyn, who supplied much original factory data, including drawings, specifications and photos, as well as criticism as the layout progressed. He also gave permission to use the photo appearing as the cover of this manual ...the wing chord has been increased about 16% to provide enough wing area to give a comfortable wing loading number. Also, the horizontal tail has been increased in area by about 20%. The only other major departure from scale has been the use of MKV struts in lieu of the ones used on the MkIV - they were simpler in appearance, and offered a bit more strngth in a critical area ...prototype of the model was built as a floatplane version, but data if supplied should you wish to build the landplane. Since the construction is so simple, no vac-formed parts are included with the kit."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

    ScaleType: This (oz6284) 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
    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.
