About this Plan

Me109E. Scale fighter for control line, for 1-1.5cc motors. October 1958 Aeromodeller.

Quote: "AD Kingswood's Me.109 controliner.

The growing popularity of the new, more powerful 1 cc and 1.5 cc engines has created a demand for more controline scale designs to suit this size of engine. What could be more suitable than the angular Messerschmitt 109? Alan Kingswood's model has now amassed several seasons' flying with an Elfin 1.49 and its robust construction with all parts sheet covered and ply tailplane, make it virtually indestructible.

To make construction very easy, the designer has adopted the old free-flight system of employing a horizontal crutch to which are attached the engine bearers, and fuselage formers are then superimposed above and below the crutch spacers. Thus the fuselage is started by building up this 1/8 x 3/8 crutch over the plan view, with appropriate thickness spacers between the main crutch and engine bearers to suit the crankcase width of your motor. Apart from the front circular F1, only the 1/8 ply F2 is a one-piece structural former, and this is now added prior to installation of the tank, bellcrank and push rod control mechanism.

Plank the fuselage with 1/8 strips approximately 5/16 wide, allowing a cutaway for the cockpit area and eventual wing seating. Make up 3/16 vertical tail surfaces and 1/16 ply tailplane and hinged elevator..."

    ScaleType: This (oz2209) 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
    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.
