About this Plan

Owlet. Scale model for rubber power. Scale is 1/12. The subject the GA Owlet was a training version of the Cygnet II, built as a cheap primary trainer for the RAF with modified fuselage and tandem open cockpit.

Quote: "A new departure in scale model technique, in which the fuselage is built in two halves, simplifying transport. Owlet by WR Jones.

The plans of this latest training machine are drawn to 1 in scale and the constructional features are simplified as much as possible. The only flying done up to the present has been pole flying. In this the Owlet has shown exceptional flying abilities, and it is hoped to have further details at an early date. The model was deisgned for twin motors and gears, but, using the rubber stated in a single motor, the performance was quite satisfactory. If super flying is required, gears should be used together with a hardwood nose blosk.

Fiuselage (fore end). Make complete drawings of the formers and transfer on to wood. Mark the top two longerons with the position of the formers and attach..."

    ScaleType: This (oz7266) 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.
