About this Plan

Fokker D8. Rubber scale German WWI fighter model. Wingspan 18in.

Quote: "Brief History: 'Flying Razor' was the nickname applied to the Fokker D8's encountered by British airmen over the Western Front in the closing weeks of World War I. The frontal area of the D8 was so small that it was almost impossible to see when attacking out of the sun. About 36 D8's were delivered to the Western Front before November 11th, 1918. Fokker D8's of the old Richthofen Circus scored Germany's last victory in the air on Nov 6th, 1918 when three Spads were shot down in a dogfight."

Discontinued kit from Guillows. This kit has been out of production since the 1970s.

Scanned at 400 dpi.

This plan was kindly submitted by Tom Solinski, who is Admin on the Guillow's Flying Models group on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1538675473123901/

Quote: "This week I changed the group cover picture to include my whole Guillows collection. Several folks have asked for copies of my WW-I series 18 inch
span models from the 50's and 60's. It dawned on me to check your files. And you only have 3 of them listed, so here are some more to add to the Outerzone collection."

User comments

Hey there, Thanks to Tom Solinski for sending in those 18 in span Guillow's WWI plans. I sure built a lot of them when I was a kid. None flew, but they were a good pastime. I'm sure I built the Fokker D8, the Se5a, the Spad, and the first plane I ever 'participated' in building (Dad doing all the real work) was the Sopwith Camel from this series. Here's to 2019!

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
