Fokker F.XX (oz11387)
About this Plan
Fokker F.XX Transport. Rubber scale model.
Quote: "Fokker F.XX Transport, by Dave Stott.
By turbulence fellas, here are plans to the great ship of that designing Dutchman, Tony Fokker. And for a one off airplane (as our English cousins would say) it led a pretty speckled career in both the civil transport role, and as a bomber in the Spanish Civil War. Our plan depicts the F.XX 'Silvermeeuw' in civil markings as operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
A blue and silver beauty, this ship will make a worthy addition to your model hanger, or by turbulence let HUNG strike us pink! In the estimation of the gang here at GHQ, this is by far the sleekest of all tri-motors to take to the ozone! Fully retract-able landing gear, rakish of line! What more could a rib slicin' tissue trimmer ask for?
As most of our Clubsters are accomplished builders, we will not go into much detail in the construction aspect of this Fokker. We all have our pet methods, and as far as power and prop goes, we all build as differently as our finger prints, so our selection of power and prop is dependant on our individual whims. And with that oral slipstream, we will say no more.
The model was built by the 'Milford Fox', Bob Jespersen, and a fine looking machine she is! Of average weight, she took less power than expected, probably due to her clean lines. Further tests proved her easier to trim with a scale size rudder, rather than the oversize one fitted at first.
Better head for the workshop, Skysters an 'Amsterdam good time'" as the TV KLM ad says."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsThe magnificent and gloriously generous people at Flying Aces! There's an immense storage of seasoned and arrow straight balsa waiting for them in heaven :-)

* 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.
