About this Plan

Arrow 50. Jetex powered free flight contest model.

Quote: "Here's a quickie for your Jetex, whether it be 50 or 100. Ian Dowsett, whose connections with Jetex activity have already gained renown, designed this pair of models for contest work in the 1951/52 season - not without success. The Arrow gained the following places. The baby version, for the Jetex 50, has an amazingly short build time of 3 hours, and its performance is parallel to its bigger brother. Full size plans are printed overleaf, so why not pull out the board and try this one for your Jetex unit. The plans for the 100 Arrow can be obtained in the usual way..."

The Arrow 100 (oz9789) and Arrow 50 both featured in the same article, in Aeromodeller April 1953.

Update 29/10/2020: Replaced the PDF plan file with a clearer 2-colour version, thanks to Miguel.

* 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.
