About this Plan

Cutlass. Jetex 50 flying scale Navy fighter model.

Quote: "Designed as a carrier-borne fighter for the US Navy, the Chance Vought F7U-3 Cutlass is reported as being an excellent machine with extremely fine handling qualities. Although no performance figures have been released for publication, the Cutlass is in the 650-700 mph class. Production aircraft are believed to be fitted with two Westinghouse J16 turbojets. One particularly uncommon design feature of this aeroplane is the fact that the main wheels of the tricycle undercarriage retract into the base of each fin and rudder.

Building instructions: Carefully cut out the various parts on the printed sheets and store them in a safe place iuntil required. Before starting to assemble the model, cover the plan with greaseproof paper..."


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz725) 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.
