Focke-Wulf FW 190 - Scale free flight power German WWII fighter, for 1-1.5cc motors. From June 1967 Aeromodeller. Scale is 1/12.
Quote: - "Now the noted Canadian artist and model designer brings us a really outstanding addition with his 1/12 scale Focke-Wulf FW 190. Built robustly, it has a shock absorbing engine mount, wing panels which will knock off and is stabilised by a pendulum controlled elevator;. Those who have seen it flying tell us it is extremely impressive, and we can well believe them. It would also convert to RC "
Update 27/12/2013: Resized this plan to correct wingspan of 34.5in - note that the plan title block still shows incorrect span, as originally printed.
Quote: "G'day Steve. The Fock-Wulf 190 F/F plan by H.F.Palmer has been scaled to the incorrect size. I know that the plan states 28", but this is an error by the Aeromodeller staff. In 'Hangar Doors' July 1967 there is a small note which states that they forgot to include the centre section [the 2 outer wing panels are each 14in], so the actual span is 34.5" The plan requires enlarging by 123.2%. I noticed this after printing a copy and the A.M. 10 seemed a bit small. It should fly just that much sweeter in the larger size, shall send you some photos when it's done. Regards"
Thanks to DannyM for help with this.
Update 12/12/2016: added article, thanks to RFJ.
Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
