About this Plan

Fokker D-VIII Flying Razor. Scale model for radio control. K&B Allyn .19 engine shown. Street and Smith plan #358.

Note: It is my understanding that there never was an article with his plan. As far as I can tell, there was just a title and 3 photos (see supplement 'article' file). The plan itself has some Additional Construction Instructions printed on it, over the right wing layout. These have a lot of helpful detail on making up and soldering the wire cabane and the undercarriage, plus scratch-building large enough wheels, engine mounting, cowling construction, plus covering and finishing.

Supplementary file notes

Alternate version of the same plan but on 4 sheets, as originally printed. Also article pages (pics only) thanks to SBurling.

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 (oz6332) 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/Fokker_D.VIII
    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.

Many, many thanks for adding this plan to the site. I've been wanting to build this one since I bought the magazine in 1958. I knew that eventually someone would post this one. If you wait long enough, a gold nugget from the past will surface. Thank you Steve. JJ and sburling for the addition. Above all, the great Cal Smith for his fine art work and plans.

Thanks Steve for adding this plan. I've been waiting for this since high school in 1958. I had to enlarge it just enough for the Proctor Dr1 cowling. Re-doing the wing for ailerons, a few fuselage mods as well as a FirePower 25 for motor. Bringing the whole thing up to current specs. This will make perfect companion to my Proctor DRI.

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.
