    ScaleType: This (oz12921) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_B-10
    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.

An 86 years old plan that could be built today with hardly any need for any significant change.

This is a model of the Martin XB-10. The distinguishing features are the squared-off rudder, open cockpit and dorsal gunner positions, and distinctive nose turret and nose. The Museum of the USAF has a photo of the XB-10 in flight.

It's actually the XB-907 and not the XB-10. The difference is that this one has an open cockpit for the pilot and the dorsal gunner, the XB 10 had enclosed cockpits
Daithi - 04/04/2021
You're both right (sorta, kinda) "... a single prototype, the Martin Model 123. This was designated XB-907 by the U.S. Army Air Corps ... Martin upgraded the prototype to the XB-907A configuration, which was then designated XB-10 by the Air Corps." The Model 123/XB-907 had three open cockpits. The XB-907A/XB-10 had two open cockpits and the bubble turret up front, as represented by this plan.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
