About this Plan

SE5A - free flight rubber scale model from 1975 FM Center Plan.

Quote: "Try an SE-5a - by John Blankenship. World War I might flare up again. Be ready with the proper aircraft. A capable Rubber Scale design for quiet moments.
The SE-5a is a longtime favorite of model builders and is seen in all modeling forms. This Peanut Scale model was designed for active flying and color schemes are well documented. Profile Publications #1 gives a number of examples of the basic olive drab or khaki painting for this World War I favorite.
The Fuselage: cut the 1/32in fuselage sides from light quarter-grain sheet. Former A is 1/16in and B through E are 1/32in. With a pencil, lightly mark the locations of the formers on the inside of the fuselage side pieces..."

* 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.
