About this Plan

Hawker Fury. Rubber scale model biplane. Scale is 1/24.

Quote: "Hello Steve, Here is the Aeromodels Hawker Fury, scanned from an old kit I bought on eBay. This is a rare find - I'd be suprised if more than half a dozen still exist. Aeromodels was a small firm based in Liverpool in the 1930s. At first it specialised in producing accurate static scale models that were either carved from solid wood or built-up from card. They were not meant for inexperienced modellers; the card models were very impressive - verging on museum standard when done well. When the firm branched into aeromodelling, they used some of the same techniques. Their flying kits often feature the use of card cowling panels. If you want to try it, the recommended card is 'Bristol board' or 'Super White paper' (obtainable from stationers and art shops). This is a smooth-grained, thin card which can be persuaded to form double curvatures if it is steam ironed at a mild heat over a carved balsa buck (though this technique may not be necessary on the Hawker Fury model). The trimmed panel should be attached to the model, tissued over and given a coat of sanding sealer. It can look very realistic - but it's easy enough to substitute the usual balsa sheet infill between stringers, if preferred. Aeromodels was never a large concern - in the early days it operated from the owner's back parlour - and it doesn't seem to have survived WW2. (Incidentally, I have all the wood from the Aeromodels Hawker Hurricane kit - but, frustratingly, not the plan! If anyone has a copy I'd be very happy to see it and to scan the printwood to complete the kit). Regards,"

    ScaleType: This (oz6433) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawker_Fury
    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.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
