About this Plan

Fieseler Fi 156 Storch. Free flight scale model. Wingspan 1180mm, for 0.5 to 1.8 cc engine. Scale is 1/12.

Quote (google-translated): "Introduction: The purpose of a hobby is not necessarily to achieve top performance in competitions or other events at all costs, but rather to bring joy, relaxation and recreation.

The present construction plan was tailored to these requirements. It should thus close a noticeable gap in model making and offer model builders who are not concerned with absolute top performance what they are looking for in a hobby, namely a balance compared to their daily professional work.

Based on these considerations, the Fieseler Storch was found to be the most suitable as it is one of the most popular German aircraft types. Emphasis was placed on the most accurate, lifelike reproduction, robust, simple construction, as well as pleasant flight characteristics and performance. Due to the design, it should be possible to install one of the new, lightweight radio controls.

Building the model: Balsa wood and plywood are mainly used to build the model. Any good acetone adhesive is suitable for gluing. We don't need a slipway for this model, just a flat wooden base as well as a soldering iron, razor blade, fretsaw and sandpaper.

The company Heros-Modellbau has released a quick construction kit for this model which contains the parts largely pre-worked. This saves us the most essential preparatory work. However, if we want to build without it, we take the shapes and dimensions from the building plan. It is recommended to adhere to the following sequence:

Fuselage construction with landing gear.
Wing with struts.
Final assembly.

Fuselage construction: After we have attached sheet 1 to our construction base and protected it from damage with tracing paper or the like, we attach the half frames 7-12 using pins (side view).

Now the fuselage strips, starting with No.14, are glued into the recesses provided in the half frames according to the construction plan. Once this half of the torso has dried well, we do the same with the other half. It is always important to ensure that the half frames are perpendicular to the building surface so that the two fuselage halves fit together exactly. These are then neatly glued together.

Now we attach part No.13, which we carefully push on from the back and also glue. Once the rear fuselage half has been completed, we attach it vertically to our construction base and now glue fuselage center beam No.21 to frame 7. Frames 6, 5 and 4 are now also glued into the corresponding slots in part No. 21, whereupon we can also glue in the remaining fuselage strips.

If we have then decided to install our chosen engine upright or hanging, we can now install the two engine mounts No. 30 after previously attaching the frames 3 and 3a (solid lines for hanging installation, dashed lines for upright installation)..."

    ScaleType: This (oz15267) 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
    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.

* 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.
