About this Plan

Beagle Pup. Radio control scale model. From RCM Annual 1968.

Quote: "JW Headley's 36in span, 1/10th scale version of the aerobatic light aircraft Beagle B.121 Pup. Designed for single channel equipment, the Pup is a natural for the sport scale enthusiast.

The Beagle B.121 Pup is the latest attempt to break into the light aircraft market presently dominated by American trainers. A very attractive design, it's the latest in a line of light planes stretching back to a design by Taylorcraft. A refreshingly original shape, and the smallest of a general family of light single and twin engined aircraft, the Pup is an acrobatic two seater powered by a 100 hp Rolls-Royce Continental.

We first found a complete writeup in a French magazine called 'Aviation' so we had to use our schoolboy French to get the details. Naturally, as soon as we'd finished. a full description appeared in 'Flight' in English! Our model is approximatelv 1/10th scale. the 'approximate' being a sneaky way of making the wing span 36 inches.

Now to the building board. We always begin by cleaning off the last half-built model. dusting a few of the shavings away, and pinning down the plan. A quick trip to the kitchen to steal a couple of yards of the wife's grease-proof paper, put a new blade in the knife, and away we go.

Wing. Begin the wing by first cutting the lower surface from medium hard 1 /16 balsa sheet to the outline shape, and pinning this down flat to the building board. If you don't have 6 in wide sheet, which isn't always available, cement together narrower stock. We used 4 in wide sheets. and have indicated the join line for this size on the plan. Now add the hard balsa 1/8 x 1/4 leading edge, which is glued 1/8 back from the edge of the sheet..."

    ScaleType: This (oz8089) 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.

* 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.
