Convair Delta Wing XF-92A (oz2144)
About this Plan
Convair Delta Wing XF-92A. Scale dyna-jet model. CL Scale Jet pg 10 Air Trails Annual 1954. Scale is 1/12.
Quote: "Combining the Dyna-Jet and delta wing shape results in a scale model that is a real show stopper. The white paint job is dazzling and the Dyna-Jet boosts the ship along at 95 mph. The model handles very well and flies very smoothly. There has been no trouble with excess heat from the engine and the odd configuration will fly right if balanced properly.
The model is scaled at 1in = 1 ft, making a pretty big job. Length is 41in and span is 1-1/4. This size is necessary so that there is ample clearance around the Dyna-Jet is the fuselage.
Complete accurate data has not been released on the big XF-92A, so the model does not have all the details complete, notably the landing gear.
You will note on the plan side view that outlines of the scale tail cone are a bit higher than the model construction. The model was laid out with fuselage symmetrical about the center line for ease of building.
Construction of the XF-92-A is fairly complex, and therefore not recommended for beginners. The fuselage is built on a jig made up of 1 x 3 in blocks at each former station (see construction steps drawing). The blocks are screwed or nailed to a 6in wide plank forming a base board..."

Previous scan version.
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 (oz2144) 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/Convair_XF-92
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.

User commentsThis is my rendition of Frank Lasheck's XF-92A, plan No. 2144 [more pics 004-007]. Since I couldn't find a functional Dynajet, it is a static model. I bet that it would be a thrill to light it off though!

* 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.
