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 (oz8625) 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.

vertical fin incorrect .had balanced top also fin was ofset 2 degrees to left.have 1/4 scale drawings if you would like a copy

Thanks, but these are plans to make a flying model airplane, these are not 3-views. Comparing the two is useful sometimes, especially if say you are building for competition purposes, in which case scale fidelity would be crucial, of course. But this plan here just is what it is. It's a paper record of how a designer chose to make a flying model, and that includes all of the simplifications and compromises involved. Also, models vary from fullsize in some practical issues, so for example you mention fin offset. Generally on flying models this is replaced with a corresponding engine thrust offset, instead.

* 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.
