1935 Hawker Super Fury Flying Model Plans

SUPERFURYThese plans will allow one to build the rubber powered flying model of the 1934 Hawker Super Fury as shown at the left and in the photos below of the finished model, and the uncovered skeleton.

It was a single seat pursuit biplane and in it's day, the Super Fury was reputed to be the fastest aircraft in the world. This is a highly detailed, very good flying (rubber powered) model. Flights of over 500 feet are not unusual. The forward fuselage can be metallic covered, just as on the real craft. The controls are ground adjustable and it has a shock absorbing landing gear to help "soften" some of those rough landings!

The wingspan of the finished model is 18.5 inches, and the total length is 14 inches. As can be seen, the construction is tissue covered balsa, using 'stick and tissue' construction for the frame, ribs and formers.

The plans are complete and highly detailed, and can be used to construct and finish the model exactly as shown in the photo of the model below.

As can be seen, the plans and instructions are mounted in a clear plastic report cover, with the plans themselves inserted into a plastic sheet protector that can be used to store the templates that are cut from the plans, as well as storing the plans themselves.

Multiple templates are included for the formers and ribs. They are included on pages separate from the plans themselves. This way, the plans won't be damaged if your method of construction includes cutting out the templates.

SUPERFURY

These plans were originally published in 1930s aviation magazines and were not necessarily complete in that they sometimes had to be scaled to fit the magazine's pages. In doing so, some pieces were left out or split to comply with space constraints and fit on adjoining pages. It was left to the builder to reconstruct parts or rescale the drawings where needed.

The plans that I am offering here are scanned from the originals. Then, using the computer, they are then redrawn, rescaled, and corrected where needed with the use of graphic editing and CAD programs to combine split components, correct errors and add missing parts.

These two photos to the left are of the actual completed model, covered and uncovered. Photo taken in 1934.


SUPERFURY

Unlike the original 1934 magazine plans, these are all printed on only one side of the paper so that cutting one side doesn't damage something you may need on the other.

Also, unlike the originals, where necessary these are corrected, rescaled plans and are then printed full size, to the scale mentioned above, including the complete original instructions. To clarify the construction, I have added to the original instructions, both on the plans sheets themselves, and in a booklet of generic hints, that aids in building, covering, painting, balancing and flying the model when completed.

I also include a hints and tips booklet, with first orders, to make your finished model an item to be proud of. The plans include the details for a scale propeller for display, and a flying propeller for... well ... flying!

SUPERFURYThese last close-ups show some of the detail that is present in the plans. These scans shown here are not representative of the quality of the plans themselves. These are reduced in resolution and size to make smaller files for downloading. The plans themselves are clearly printed, highly detailed, full size drawings to the scale mentioned above.

The plans also include the markings and information on a paint scheme for them. This detail is present throughout the entire model, so the builder can choose any level of finishing that his skill, knowledge and patience dictate.

The original drawings and dimensions for the plans were taken directly from the full size aircraft in the 1930s, and reflect the original much more accurately than other plans may.
