Auster V (oz7427)
About this Plan
Auster V. Free flight scale model.
Quote: "A free flight Scale Auster, by HG Moore.
One of the most popular light aeroplanes at present in use in this country, the Auster, is a 'natural' for a rugged and stable flying scale model. Slab-sided fuselage and parallel-chord wings make construction simple, and inverted engines are readily installed in the deep cowling.
Fuselage and Centre-section: Build up the two side frames on top of one another on the plan. Fit in the 1/8 in sq uprights for the cabin and cement the top longeron in place, cutting it to fit between the cabin uprights, then add the remaining uprights and complete the rear cabin frame. Before removing the sides from the plan, fit the 1/8 sheet gussets around the U/C fixing. Fit the cross-spacers as on the plan view, working from nose to tail, adding the centre-section spars and leading edge and the diagonal fuselage bracing.
Cement the undercarriage tee-section across the fuselage and finish off the cabin except for the windscreen W-struts. Assemble the balsa-and-ply root ribs, cut out the wing-tongue slots and cement the ribs in place, taking care to get the incidence correct.
Cut the formers from 1/8 in hard sheet, cement F1 in place and leave to harden. Cut out the ply motor mount with tabs to fit the slots in F1. Cement it squarely in position and add the 1/4 in sq cross-support. When dry, cement the lower half of nose former F2 to the front of the motor mount. Carve the block for the bottom of the cowling, stepping the edges for eventual sheeting. Cement it into place between F2 and F1 and also cement the 1/8 sq on the top edges of the mount. Construct the removable top cowling between F1A and the top half of F2..."

Previous scan version.
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 (oz7427) 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/Taylorcraft_Auster
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.
