PZL P.24 (oz3928)
About this Plan
PZL P-24. Free flight scale model of the gull-winged Polish fighter. From Aeromodeller, October 1952.
Quote: "A one-twelfth scale model for 1.5 cc engines. PZL P-24 Fighter, by DF Bryant.
THE little 35 ft span Polish fighter produced by I the Panstwowe Zaklady Lotnieze, the Polish National Aircraft Establishment of pre-war days, was chosen as a subject for free-flight after Mr Bryant saw the Comper Swift (oz3262) by DP Golding in the February issue. Plans were scaled up from Aircraft of the Fighting Powers with all surfaces to correct scale. Subsequent flight tests found the diminutive tail inadequate, so slight deviation from scale is necessary in tail area. Since March, the prototype has made almost 100 successful flights, and apart from one unfortunate mid-air collision with a sailplane at 510 ft over the runway at Fairlop, all flights have been made without undue event.
The P.24 (full-size) was armed with four 7.7 mm guns in the wings and fitted with racks for light bombs. Alternatively, two of the guns could be replaced with a pair of 20 mm cannon. its top speed of 267 mph and range of 435 miles hardly compare with performance of the modern interceptor; but as an attractive subject for modelling, it has few rivals among the post war breed.
Fitted with a Frog 150 diesel, and with press-stud attached silk covered wings, and tail unit, the prototype has already influenced some of designer liryant's South London Scale clubmates to produce duplicate models. High wing and power loading mean that its flying speed is relatively fast, yet certainly not in the flying brick class. Rather, the extra airspeed adds considerably to its realism in flight.
Full building instructions are issued free, with each full size copy of the 1/5th scale plan opposite, from APS."
Quote: "The next one up is the PZL P24 Fighter designed by D. Bryant. I am not sure if this is the Dennis Bryant or not but the plane is certainly worthy of him. The model is 36" span, 1.5cc powered, scale model of the Polish Fighter plane. It has knock-off flying surfaces and a pendulum controlled elevator. An interesting build and certainly one for consideration if you want a small, realistic, radio job ...As always my drawings are but tracings of blown up scans and may well contain errors, please measure twice before committing to any knife work."
This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

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 (oz3928) 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/PZL_P.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.

* 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.
