Monocoupe Model 110 (oz4813)
About this Plan
Monocoupe Model 110. Rubber scale model. Note this is not a full-size plan, this is a scan of the original magazine pages as printed, with drawing of model at 1/4 full size.
Quote: "This is a true flying scale model of neat appearance and good flying ability. This model is a perfect scale model of the Monocoupe 110 and was built and designed from plans furnished to the Model Department by the Monocoupe Corporation.
THE general specifications of the large machine are as follows: Warner Scarab Engine, seven cylinder, 110 horsepower; weight of large empty machine, 1,031 pounds; wing section, Clark Y; Dihedral, 1 degree; and angle of incidence 0 degree.
The propeller diameter is 84 inches. The wing span of the large machine is 32 feet; body length overall 20 feet 4 inches; chord 5 feet; stabilizer width 8 feet six inches; stabilizer depth 3 feet 3-1/2 inches; rudder height 4 feet 1/2 inch; fin depth 1 foot 11 inches and rudder depth 2 feet, 4-1/2 inches.
The completed 22 inch model weighs ready for flight, a trifle less than 3/4 ounce.
The entire wing is built up in one piece and is split at the middle with the dihedral added at each wing tip. The windows are put in and the entire wing is covered and cemented on top of the fuselage in the final assembly.
All the ribs are cut to conform to the Clark Y section which is flat on the bottom. Ailerons are shown as separate units made movable by attaching with a soft piece of wire. Attach the aileron at two points and cement the wires securely. The small pieces of wire should be attached along the side of a rib. It is not necessary that the controls in the model be made movable.
The wing tips are bent bamboo and these ends continue around and are a part of the aileron. Before putting the wing tips in place, cement the two spars for the ailerons on their position and continue the wing tip and allow to dry. Then cut the complete aileron out of the wing.
The spar in the aileron should be approximately 1/8 inch thick, and the face is rounded which allows movement of the aileron without binding. Two spars are used on the lower side of the wing and are cut to conform to the upward curve..."

ScaleType: This (oz4813) 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/Monocoupe_90
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.
