About this Plan

Curtiss JN 4D Jenny. Radio control scale model biplane. Wingspan 66 in, wing area 865 sq in. For FS 20 to 50, TS 20 to 40 engines, and 4 channel radio.

Note this plan is marked: "1 of 2 sheets". Presumably there was a second sheet (showing parts?) - although this first sheet certainly shows all ribs, fuselage sections, and all you need to build the model (?).

Quote: "This is from the scans posted by Martin Irvine at have stitched the 3 sections to gether, rescaled and gave it a quick tidy up. Now at 400 dpi as a 2 color bitmap."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 4/6/2022: Added kit instructions, thanks to theshadow.

    ScaleType: This (oz11641) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User comments

Has anyone built this plane from this download? Having some issues with the scale and some of the ribs. The plan doesn't have W3 showing, assuming it's W4 without the trim cuts. Lots of callouts W10, W11, etc. without defining them. Having to make lots of assumptions..

* 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.
