Edgar Percival EP 9 (oz2618)
About this Plan
Edgar Percival EP 9. Scale cabin model for rubber power.
Quote: "EVERY aeromodeller is attracted by a model that looks like the real thing. This near-scale model of Edgar Percival's fascinating general purpose aeroplane will amply repay the efforts you put into building it.
Construction is similar to the Airflo Glider (oz2617) from chapter 4, and the Starcrest (oz2630) rubber driven model in chapter 6. The sketches give step-by-step construction. When tracing the fuselage sides on to balsa be sure to include the position of the wing rib. Later the wing ribs (RB.1) line up with this rib outline to ensure correct upward slopping angle of the wings (the incidence angle).
The rear part of fuselage (parts M,N,O,T, V, W2) is covered with tissue. Dope fin and tailplane, pinning down white drying before assembling to fuselage.
Wing construction is shown step-by-step in the sketches. Shape leading and trailing edges to section shown. Cover with lightweight tissue. Water shrink and give one coat of clear dope. When cementing completed wing into fuselage slots, carefully line up bottom of wing ribs RB.1 with the rib outlines already traced on fuselage sides..."

ScaleType: This (oz2618) 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/Edgar_Percival_E.P.9
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.
