About this Plan

Concorde. Radio contro pusher-prop model for .049 morors and 2 function radio.

Quote: "THE idea of building a Concorde, and subsequent motivation, was inspired through remembering the successful free flight Concorde (featured as a free plan in Aero Modeller) and the apparent ease and informality of flying scale only models at the ever successful MAP Scale day each June at Old Warden. My original model (and subsequently this also) was scaled up from the Airfix plastic 1/144 scale kit using the finished model. It was apparent from the beginning that using funnyfarm measurements would ease the multiplication by 3 needed to arrive at the desired 1/48th scale.
There are intentionally slight deviations (artistic licence) from the true scale. This occurred when I rounded up or down a few measurements for simplicity.
Wings: Edge joint sufficient pieces of 1/8 in. sheet balsa to make up the wing. This is easily done by first Sellotaping the sheets together on one side then opening out using the tape as a hinge applying PVA and finally closing the joint. Weight the assembly until dry..."

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 (oz9450) 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.
