About this Plan

Junkers Ju-87D Stuka. Scale rubber dive-bomber. September 1957 Aeromodeller.

Quote: "A 17in span rubber driven F/Scale Model as on the cover. Also available as a 34in span .5 cc Free Flight power model and 2.5 cc Control line scale model.

DURING RESEARCH for the drawings for this month's Aeroplane in Outline, the author became fascinated by the possibility of producing a flying model of the Ju.87D. A diesel powered model was envisaged, but owing to the lack of time and desire to reassure himself of the feasibility of the type as a flying model, a small rubber powered model was first produced. This flew so well that it is here presented as a full size plan. For those who would like to make an enlarged (twice-size) power driven version, die-line prints of a 34 in span design are also available, price 5/- from APS.

First remove the plan pages from the magazine and cover with thin greaseproof paper and begin construction with the fuselage. Lay down with 1/8 x 1/16 in keels and to them cement the left hand halves of the formers except F7, which is added later. Make sure these are quite upright and add the 1/16 square stringers. Fill in between the stringers at the wing root with 1/16 sheet and cut the slots for the mainspars and wing leading edge. When thoroughly dry remove this assembly from the plan and bind on the tailwheel strut and rear rubber anchorage hook.

Repeat the procedure for the starboard side, cementing formers to left fuselage side. Add stringers and former F7. Add the noseblock and bend some soft 1/16 sheet around the underside of former F2, to form the radiator. Cover the nose with cartridge paper as shown in photo of uncovered frame-work.

Make two wing mainspars from firm 1/16 sheet as shown in front view. Don't forget to make one left and one right-hand spar, the root spar being cemented behind the outer spar. Lay the outer spars on the plan and build up the wings from tip to ribs R2. Note angle of R2 on spar front view..."

    ScaleType: This (oz1792) 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/Junkers_Ju_87
    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.
