About this Plan

BA Swallow. Free flight scale power model, for .5cc motor.

Quote: "THE ancestry of the Swallow II can be traced back to the German Klemm L.25, several of which were imported into this country during 1930-31. In 1933 the type was manufactured over here by the British Klemm Aeroplane Co Ltd of Feltham, the forerunners of the British Aircraft Manufacturing Co Ltd.

The final version produced in 1935 proved extremely popular in civil aviation and by September 1939 over 150 machines had been registered in this country alone. A number were privately owned, but the majority belonged to various schools and clubs.

Building Instructions: Lay plan side view over 1/32 in sheet and trace through the complete flat side view including slots for C/S, LE and spars. Repeat for other side of the fuselage. Cut out F12 and glue into position on side sheets then install all uprights

Prop up sides over plan view and install cross pieces, remove from plan, cut out and cement all formers with the exception of F1. Cut to length, drill for engine bolts and install engine bearers..."

    ScaleType: This (oz9360) 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.

* 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.
