Fokker G1 (oz1759)
About this Plan
Fokker G1. Scale rubber powered model twin-boom fighter. The plan says: Bill Barnes Air Trails flying scale model of the Fokker G.1 bimotor bifuselage: Attack plane, Reconnaissance and light bomber. Scaled to 1/24 - From April 1937 Air Trails.
Quote: "The FOKKER G-1, A Double Fuselage Flying Scale Model by Alan D. Booton.
SINCE the data on this ship has been given on other pages of this issue, let us start the model. Read the directions and study the drawings carefully. You will note that the model is a 1/64 sheet-covered, all-balsa type and that the main frames are of the simple, rectangular type with the formers added.
Provision has been made to get better performance from the model by the use of extension nosings that permit the use of longer propellers, if desired. The tail surfaces are removable for rubber installation, and change from flying to scale surfaces.
Wing. Where wider sheets of the 1/64 sheet are required, butt cement the 2in sheets together to the appropriate width. From such widths cut four oversize wing-panel patterns and two center section-panel patterns 1/8 over-size in chord.
After the ribs have been cut out, make a pair of slotted main spars for the wings tapered to the last rib and wide as the wing is thick, also one center-section spar. The slotted main spars make possible the assembly of the wing panel parts without additional drawing.
The assembling should be done on a soft, smooth board. Taking one panel as an example, lay one of the wing-panel patterns on the board and assemble all the parts on it, using the trailing edge as a guide line. Slant Rib 1 for dihedral. Use plenty of pins to hold the parts in place and then cement all joints..."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz1759) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_G.I
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.
