About this Plan

Albatros D-XI. Free flight rubber scale model German WWI fighter.

Quote: "The plans are accurately scaled from the best available data to 1/2 inch to the foot ...the fact that only the tail surfaces and the top and bottom of the fuselage need be tissue covered greatly simplifies construction. Since the wings of the real plane had very thin sections, 1/32 sheet balsa was used for them as was the fuselage sides. The finished weight is little, if any, heavier than for a model of conventional contruction. Only a few evenings are needed from start to finished plane, and the flights are excellent for a model of this small size. So, let's get to work..." Here is Joseph H. Wherry's Albatros D-XI from Model Airplane News magazine issue 09-47.

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 (oz5515) 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.
