Britten-Norman Islander (oz9714)
About this Plan
Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander. Radio control scale twin model, for 2x .40 engines. Scale is 1/7.
Quote: "Hello Steve and Mary. Please find here ... the Svenson Britten Norman Islander, a 84in scale model. There are 5 big plans and two extras: component list and decal sheet. There are no building instructions, but a lot of explanation is given on the plans itself. No matter what, this is an advanced building plan. I hope you can share this wonderful design on Outerzone. Kind regards, Dries"

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 (oz9714) 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/Britten-Norman_BN-2_Islander
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.

User commentsHullo Steve, you may like to add these pics to your plan [more pics 006, 007]. I built it for 2 Enya 45,s, about 80 in span. Not from the Svenson kit, from a scale drawing in RCM models. Flew beautifully.

* 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.
