About this Plan

Fokker D. XXI. Scale model for RC.

Quote: "A unique model of historical interest, this Fokker D.XXI is a suitable project for modelers with moderate experience. Designed for use with .049 to .09 engines and lightweight R/C systems.

As a Stand-Off Scale R/C model, the historic Fokker D.XXI fighter makes an interesting and unique subject which can be finished in the colorful markings of either of the three countries that operated it. For reference material, consult the Profile Publication Number 63, or see Air Combat magazine's September and November 1975 issues (Challenge Publications, 7950 Deering Avenue. Canoga Park, California 91304).

Modeled to a scale of one inch to the foot (1/12), the Fokker D. XXI is an ideal size for .049 to .09 R/C, a size range that is rapidly growing in popularity. The only major deviation in scale was to increase the wing chord to provide greater wing area (190 square inches, rather than 174 square inches that would have been exact scale).

Since it is the most complex structure in the airframe, the fuselage should be the first item on the agenda. Patterned after the full-size D. XXI's own actual construction technique, the fuselage builds into a strong but amazingly lightweight structure.

Start by fabricating the nine fuselage formers: F-1 from 1/8 plywood; F-2 to F-6 inclusive from 1/8 sheet balsa: and F-7, F-8, and F-9 from 3/32 sheet balsa. Note that the lower center piece of F-5 is tack-glued in place, to be removed at the completion of the fuselage assembly, thereby allowing unimpeded access to the spacious fuselage radio/servo compartment..."

    ScaleType: This (oz5930) 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.
