About this Plan

Dornier Do 335 B8. Rubber scale model German WWII fighter.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi y'all, I'm submitting the Dornier Do-335 B8 plan and a few pictures of the model. Here's some background on the B8 and a link to the Cookup on StickandTissue.com: https://www.stickandtissue.com/forum/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1401559480/4

The B-8, the final B-series variant, was to be a two seat night fighter for which the M23 was the designated development prototype. The B-6 night fighter was to be based on the A-6 airframe. The B-7 was also to be a night fighter with an enlarged laminar flow wing with 441 square feet of surface area and 2000 hp DB 603 engines for which the M22 would have been the development prototype. The B-8 was to have been a high altitude night fighter which incorporated the Heinkel designed high aspect ratio long span wings with 463 square feet of surface area and powered by the DB 603 LA engines of 2000 hp. It would have carried the standard armament of 1 x MK 103 and 2 x MG 151/20 cannon. There is no evidence that any of these night fighter variants were ever built.

My build is based on the Don Srull Dornier Do 335 (oz12465) plans which I've modified to the larger wing and second cockpit for the radar operator. This model was built but my eldest Grandson claimed it and took it home with him before she could spread her wings."

Update 11/6/2022: Replaced this plan with a revised version, thanks to Tom Akery. This fixes the scaling to the correct fullsize wingpsan at 36 in. Thanks also to Fred for spotting this.

    see Wikipedia | search Outerzone


    ScaleType: This (oz13875) 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/Dornier_Do_335
    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.

Time to write a new will :-)) A fine plan, fine covering work, and great, meticulous finish. Has the lovely child flown the Pfeil yet?

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.
