About this Plan

Bristol M1D - Scale rubber model racer.

Quote: "...a very nice scale rubber model of the Twenties racer the Bristol M1D from Bill Dennis. This has long been a popular scale subject and the M.1D version was powered by a Bristol Lucifer engine saving the making of an enormous spinner and giving the opportunity to add a little bling up front. Bill designed it for rubber but suggests it would also be very suitable for CO2 power with useful weight savings to be made."

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

Here are a couple more photos of another model, this time the Bristol M1D by Bill Dennis from Aeromodeller, oz number oz2991 [more pics 005-008]. A bit of a change here, I built this model as the WW I Fighter that it was to start with, not as the later racing version, mainly to try out some coloured tissue I had recently bought that I thought may look the part. It turned out to be one of the nicest models to build, cover and fly. Eventually of course, the tissue started to deteriorate so I sold the model along with the proviso that they re-covered it!

* 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.
