About this Plan

Pfalz D3 - Scale free flight plan WWI fighter biplane. Designed by F Palmer it was developed for pendulum control with full safety features including sprung landing gear, knock off wings. Fully planked fuselage, spruce, balsa and silk construction. Scale is 1/8. December 1960 Aeromodeller.

Quote: - "A superb one-eighth scale free-flight model by F. Palmer of the W.W.l. fighter. Pfalz D III from Aero Modeller December 1960. This 1/8 scale Pfalz DIII has been developed as a pendulum controlled model with full safety features including sprung landing gear, knock-off wings, fully planked fuselage, spruce, balsa and silk construction. Sleek lines, curvaceous fuselage, flat upper plane, and colourful appearance, make it a worthy addition to any modeller's collection... The Pfalz is extremely stable, robust, and a delight to fly. Craftmanship, the use of Bondfast PVA and Pliobond and nylon for binding fittings etc., help in no small way to provide these qualities. Take time in construction and complete each operation carefully. The results are well worth it..."

* 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.
