About this Plan

Pfalz D3. Rubber scale German WWI biplane fighter model. Wingspan 18in.

Quote: "Brief History: Perfected in 1917 as a possible successor to the single-seat Albatros, the Pfalz D.3 failed to win a top place with the German Staffels on the Western Front but nevertheless was popular in the rank and file squadrons. Much stronger than the Albatros, the Pfalz was considerably slower in level flight and climb, putting it at a great disadvantage when opposing the Allied Camels, Spads and SE-5s. However its design characteristics suited it for the dangerous and exacting work of balloon-busting where it was flown success fully by leading German Aces."

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."

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.
