Le Pere LUSAC 11. Rubber scale model WWI American two-seater fighter plane.
Quote: "The Le Pere LUSAC 11 ('Le Pere US Army Combat') was developed in 1918 by Packard Motor Car Co of Detroit, Mich. Designecl try a French Engineer, it had 41 ft 7 in wingspan of 5 ft 6 in chord, 25 ft 6 in long, it would attain 132 mph @ 2000 ft altitude. This plane was powered by the 400 HP Liberty V-12 engine , also developed by Packard.
The only deviation from scale on this plan is the dihedral. Save 3-view drawing for contest judging.
Construction is standard for stick and tissue model's. Rudder takes a little longer, but is very light and strong. Check all surfaces for warps after shrinking tissue and correct before applying one coat of 50/50 thinned dope.
Scale vintage wheels, 3/4 in dia, may be purchased from your local Hobby Shop. For best results, do not peel paper patterns off balsa parts until they are ready to be used. Cut markings from colored tissue and attach with thinned dope. "

* 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.
