Fairchild 24-R (oz325)
About this Plan
Fairchild Ranger 24R (Fairchild Ranger). Large scale gas free flight model by Paul Lindbergh. October 1937 Popular Aviation.
Quote: "THIS model with its sleek, racy design and proven flyability will be the pride of every model builder upon its completion. The design of the ship as a whole makes it very simple to construct. The model is equipped with an extremely simple type of shock absorbing landing gear, the design of which is very efficient under all conditions. All controls are adjustable as well as the wing struts so that the wings may be adjusted to dihedral. The false struts which fasten from the pants up to the wing struts as well as the struts that run up to the cabin are used for display purposes only."
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 (oz325) 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/Fairchild_24
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 commentsG'Day, Dicription say 36in span, but if you add all the mesurments on the plan (rib spacing and fuse width) you get 80in span. Keep up the good work.

Thanks, have changed wingspan to 80in for this plan.

The scale of fuselage and wings is not the same. The fuselage is smaller. Greets from Germany.

Yes, you're right. There was some strange scaling there. Ok, have checked scaling and resized both sheets and uploaded a version with both sheets at full-size. 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.
