About this Plan

Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress. Control line scale multi, from Berkeley. Wingspan 52 in.

Quote: "Here's the renowned pioneer of four-engine bombers that won praise of its brave pilots and crews and the respect of its foe in every theatre of WWII. Berekeley's great kit makes it possible to build a realistic, authentic duplicate using two 'live' gas engines and two dummy engines for multi-engine performance. Use of four engines is optional. Kit no 8-5. $19.95"

    ScaleType: This (oz3941) 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
    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.
