About this Plan

F-4 Phantom. Radio control scale jet fighter, for Dynajet power.

Quote: "Many years of experience with Dyna-Jets have made this dream plane a practical and successful model aircraft. And it is much simpler than it seems. By Ralph Saldivar... Some model builders shy away from jets because of envisioned difficulties with engine installation and operation. True, some items, such as engine installation and fuel tank design, must be given special consideration during construction. Yet once the requirements for jet engine operation are understood, these problems are solved quite easily. Another concern is the potential fire hazard, which has been exaggerated. By taking proper precautions such difficulties can be virtually eliminated - but do keep a fire extinguisher handy... a certain amount of courage is required to tackle a project of this magnitude, but the reward of seeing the finished jet aircraft in action will more than repay the effort involved. Although my Phantom was radio-controlled, this ship also would be ideal for U-Control. It is definitely not a beginner's project but construction should not offer any particular problems to the experienced scale modeler."

Update 23/09/2013: Have replaced this file with a cleaned and scaled version that now aligns correctly, thanks to nameless. Have also added a supplement version of the same plan spread over 2 sheets at 33in wide.

Supplementary file notes

Alternate version of the same plan, but split over 2 pages. Also article pages, text and pics, thanks to RogerC.

Corrections?

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 (oz4743) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_Douglas_F-4_Phantom_II
    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.

Hi Steve, This is Prashanth from India. Firstly, superb site!! I was looking at modeling the F4 Phantom. Before I start with Balsa, I was planning on attempting to model the plane without the internal components using Thermocol. However, I fail to understand how the Fuselage Jig is going to be used. I do not see it being mentioned anywhere else in the plan either. I am sure you would have guessed, but this is my first time. thanks and regards,

Hi Steve. I'm currently building this model, and it's a superb project. I have my build log here: www.thescratchbuildersguide... Regarding the fuselage former in the Q. above, yes, it made no sense to me either! Still, I'm past that bit now, and as usual, I have transcribed the plan into CAD software, and will release the .dxf files as soon as I'm happy with things. It's looking great! Cheers.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
