Fieseler Storch (oz5007)
About this Plan
Fieseler Storch. Rubber scale model.
Quote: "THIS pre-war German lightplane, it will be noted, bears more than a little resemblance to the famed Curtiss Robin. Like the Robin, it also offers the model builder an opportunity to produce a truly fine flying scale. With the exception of slightly increased dihedral and incidence - and, of course, the omission of 'fancy' details - the adherence to actual scale is as close as the available drawings and photographs would permit.
To begin construction, cut out two of the 1/16 sheet formers to which the wing base is cemented. Pin one of these in place over the side plan view and add the 1/8 sq hard balsa longerons and uprights, and the 1/16 x 1/8 cabin members, all of which are indicated by heavy black lines. It will be found necessary to soak the lower ton-geron in water in order to correctly form the required curve. After pinning this longeron in place allow it to dry thoroughly before cementing the uprights.
Two sides are built in this manner, the second directly on top of the first for accuracy. When the two sides have been completed, remove them from the plans and add the 1/8 sq crossbraces and 1/16 sq upper cabin members as shown on top plan view, working from front to back. Cut from 1/16 rock hard sheet and cement in place the two rear mounts which hold the 1/8 dowel motor mount. The fuselage formers are cut from 1/32 medium hard sheet and cemented in place, the lower formers being lightly nicked to take the 3/64 sq stringer. Stringers of the latter size are also added to the sides, as indicated on the plans..."
Quote: "Here's another article (with plan) from the Jan. 1948 Model Airplane News. This is a 24 inch rubber scale model of the Fieseler Storch. Doesn't appear to be all that scale. But fairly simple. Article, design, and plan by Len Marlow. "

ScaleType: This (oz5007) 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/Fieseler_Fi_156
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.
