About this Plan
Bristol Fighter F2B. Radio control scale model WWI fighter. Wingspan 114 in. For DA-85cc engine or similar. Scale is 1/4.
Note: this plan is available as a free download from the mnbigbirds site at https://www.mnbigbirds.com/Andersen%20Plans.htm along with parts list, pics, etc. This here is the same plan, after some very minor adjustment and cleanup.
Quote: "Bristol F2B Fighter. The Bristol F.2 Fighter was a two-seat biplane fighter and reconnaissance aircraft and was without a doubt one of the most important and successful British designs to serve during the First World War.
This exact 1/4 scale version has been designed by Roy Maynard a long-time scale builder and competitor, with the plans being drawn by his good friend David Andersen."
Note the plan download comes with a disclaimer saying quote: "To date, prototypes of this model have not been flown or evaluated. We invite you to be the first. Be advised that there may be undiscovered omissions or flaws in the plans. Only experienced builders and pilots who are capable of evaluating the structure and performance of this type of airplane should attempt to build this design. Please report your findings, if any, to David P Andersen, via email shown on www.mnbigbirds.com Best wishes for successful building and flight."
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 (oz12872) 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/Bristol_F.2_Fighter
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 commentsThere is no need to comment on the evident quality of this plan. Regarding the place where Pilgrim got this from, I can only be thankful for Mr Andersen's generosity in making plans of this quality available for free. A dozen of them have ended up here already, an Oz search for David Andersen will reveal a few taken mostly from RCM.

* 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.
