About this Plan

Stahlwerk R-IIIb. Scale rubber model, built around some handmade Fulton Hungerford spoked wheels. The Stahlwerk R-IIIb at 15in span. A Polish homebuilt from the 1920s.

Quote: "I built this model in 1988 and gave it to a friend before leaving to move to Singapore. A few months ago he came to visit me and brought the model back - it had been sitting on his bookshelf all that time. I recovered it and have attached a photo. The text is worth reading for Walt's unique method of tightening the monofilament rigging. After installing the lines, he holds the model over the kitchen stove, and the heat shrinks them, hopefully without igniting the airplane! I've never heard of that one before". Direct Submission to Outerzone.


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

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new 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.
