About this Plan

Arsenal VG-33. Radio control scale model fighter, for .15 power. Designed 1/12 scale RC combat event. Scale is 1/12.

Quote: "Arsenal VG-33. A World War II combat design. By Bob Wallace.

Scale R/C combat! The concept is not new, as this event has been flown for several years now, both in the United States and in Europe. Scale R/C combat's rapidly increasing popularity led to its being incorporated into the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) 1992 Competition Regulations Rule Book as a provisional event (event 704).

The basic rules are quite simple for constructing a suitable aircraft, and the costs to participate in this event are quite low. The indicated scoring process does appear to be a bit complicated. however.

Basically, any combat aircraft produced or in service from 1935 to 1955 is eligible. The model must be a 1/12 scale replica, with a plus or minus 5% deviation in scale allowed in wingspan, horizontal tail span, rudder height, fuselage length, and cross section. There are no other scale fidelity requirements.

A maximum weight of 2 kilograms, or 35.2 ounces, for single engine aircraft or 1.2 kilograms (40 ounces) for multi-engined designs is utilized. If the full-scale aircraft was powered with an in-line engine, the maximum model engine size that can be used is .15 cubic inches. A radial engine powered design may use a .20 cubic inch model engine. Virtually all model aircraft used in this new and exciting event are single engined types, with three servos (throttle, aileron, and elevator) being employed... "

    ScaleType: This (oz6492) 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.
