About this Plan

Boeing P-26A Peashooter. Free flight scale model for rubber power.

Note this design first appeared in Dec 1934 Popular Aviation. This here is the plan as sold by Lindberg Model & Supply Co, and is dated 1935.

Quote: "THE Boeing P-26A is a ship most of you model fans have been waiting for and our laboratory is very proud to present plans and instructions for building this trim little fighter. Not only does it have a striking appearance but flies equally as well.

We have obtained all data necessary for completing this model, even to the correct color scheme used by the 95th Pursuit Squadron. Weight of model complete, ready to fly, is 1-7/8 ounces. Distance of 200 feet or better, flying between 25 to 35 mph.

Please note all advanced features, such as movable controls with aluminum hinges, fuselage construction, shock absorbers, landing gear, etc, are exclusive features developed only by our laboratory.

In building the model, all dimensions can be quickly and accurately determined by placing a ruler on the part to be measured. The plan is printed full size.

Construction: The fuselage sides are built from 1/16-inch square balsa. The longerons, verticals, diagonal braces, etc, are held in place until securely cemented by inserting straight pins on either side of the strips wherever needed. After the two sides are completed, they are pinned to the top of the plan in such a manner that the top longerons face down..."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi Steve, Another rarity, this time the Paul W. Lindberg Boeing P-26A Peashooter. This one spans 17 5/16" as measured on the front elevation. All the best,"

Update 30/6/2024: Added article, thanks to Pit.

    ScaleType: This (oz15384) 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.
