    ScaleType: This (oz775) 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.

This was the very first airmodel I built and flew, in the late 60s. Poor thing, it came out a bit warped but with a paper tab here and there if flew immensely well... or so it seemed to me at the time. It introduced a new smell in the house: cellulose thinners :)

In the past year I have scratch built many models from plans on your website. See Veron Prefect photos attached [main pic, 003].

Hi, here are a couple of pics of my Veron Slingsby Prefect [005, 006]. Thanks,

I built this model I believe about 1960. I still have the plan and original box. Vernon kits were manufactured some 20 miles from me.
The prefect was one more building block that led me to a career as a commercial pilot and an RC builder in Canada.

* 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.
