About this Plan

Avro Mk.IV Triplane 1910. Scale model for Cox .020 engine or Hytork 48 electric motor. Scale is 1/12. Original design by Chuck West, plan redrawn for Peterson Products by Art Reiners.

Quote: "The Avro Mk IV is a flying scale reproduction of the original aeroplane produced by the A.V.Roe Company of Manchester, England in September 1910 and finally dismantled in the fall of 1911. The construction of the model is not an overnight project but with some time and patience we believe you will find it an interesting model for the scale enthusiast. Certain points require explanation to simplify construction.."

    ScaleType: This (oz7349) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roe_IV_Triplane
    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.

I have an original RN Kit of the Avro Mk IV by Chuck West originally kitted by Peterson Products (which is how you show it on Outerzone). It included a two-page instructions as well as ... very important ... a sheet not on the plans with all the wire parts patterns. I also scanned the ribs and fuselage parts for you [see supplementary file].

* 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.
