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 (oz3098) 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/Fokker_D.VII
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 commentsAll right, now that we’ve got the little Comet Models Spad (oz12909) into the Outerzone stable…here’s a “face” to go along with its mate, the Fokker DVII (oz3098) from 1963 and likewise a 12” wingspan [main pic, 004-006]. I’ve shown them together at the top of one photo…just for comparison. Here are the modifications I’ve made on the Fokker…shortened the fuselage nose “one cylinder”…was too long for scale appearance…also shortened the landing gear…isn’t going to ROG…so no need for “long legs.” Kit-furnished wheels are rarely acceptable…so balsa units are substituted there as well. I had an existing prop/shaft/nose button…worked them into that big Fokker radiator. That’s it. Finish is as per Jasta 11, aircraft as flown by little-big brother Lothar von Richthofen, Pour le Merite, 40 victory ace…and yes, Lothar was the younger brother of the Baron himself…Manfred (and they were such polite boys, too). By the look of all those colors, Lothar wasn’t trying to avoid anyone’s attention. He survived the War only to perish as an airline pilot in 1922. The plan looks heavy-duty, but with a bit of love and care…the Spad and Fokker shine. Thank you, Steve and Mary for all you do for our hobby. Live long and prosper.

Oh Man of the Thousand Brushes, you are forgetting the Third Man, cousin Field Marshal Wolfram v. Richthofen! Not an ordinary character, please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfram...

Was kann man sagen? As for Wolfram, if one is going to play in the mud, shouldn't be surprised if getting dirty isn't the result. Such was the price of having "friends in high places." Mother always told me to watch who I ran with.

* 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.
