About this Plan

Fairchild 24. Rubber scale model.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "The Fairchild 24 was a 2 to 4-place business cabin monoplane developed in the early 1930s as the Great Depression dried up airline purchases. It was available with either radial or inline engines and was built by Fairchild's Kreider-Reisner division through 1948. It was a very versatile aircraft and also served in the military, even to bombing WW2 U-boats off the US coast.

Hurst's 27.5 in model is of the radial-engine version, likely for rubber-powered free-flight, though the plan shows rudder structure suitable for hinging."


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

    ScaleType: This (oz11879) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairchild_24
    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.

For those that nit pick, please note this is a 1938 or later Warner powered 24. Earlier models had a smaller fin, a larger main landing gear fairing and often overlooked the rear window sloped the other direction. See oz323.

* 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.
