Miles Hawk Speed Six (oz813)
About this Plan
Miles Hawk Speed Six. Scale racer. Free flight scale power model, for 2cc engine. This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format, by hogal.
Quote: "ALTHOUGH it is now some seventeen years since the AL Hawk Speed Six was new it has, nevertheless, won a great reputation as a pure racer in post-war years. Generally considered as the most potent entrant in events since air racing restarted in this country, this aircraft has only just been rivalled in this field by the recent resurrection of the sole surviving Mew Gull.
Modellers may choose between three sets of registra-tion letters for their planes ; G—ADOD which DP Golding has modelled was accompanied by G—ACTE and G—ADGP and it is the last named of these that is still flying and is to be seen this summer at meetings and races. G—ADOD was first flown with an open cockpit by Ruth Fontes, but was later fitted with a new decking and a cockpit canopy. In this form F/0 Clouston flew it in the 1936 Johannesburg race, but engine trouble resulted in the aircraft being written off in Rhodesia.
This model, originally powered by E.D. Competition special 2 cc diesel, features pendulum control for both the Ailerons and the Rudder. In addition, the elevator may be adjusted for trim, thus providing a neat scale appearance with separated control surfaces, and at the same time using them to ensure stability. Detachable wings make it an easy model to transport..."

ScaleType: This (oz813) 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/Miles_Hawk_Major
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.
