SE5a Slow Combat (oz7714)
About this Plan
SE-5a Profile C/L Slow Combat. By George Albo
Quote: "Steve / Mary, hope you like... SE-5a Profile C/L Slow Combat by George Albo. May 8, 2016. The Sig Spad-7 and the Sig Fokker DVII have dominated the Biplane C/L Slow combat niche for years. That is about to change. Johnny Casburn had put out an SE-5a as a kit but like Sig's kits, are no longer available. Needless to say plans for it cannot be found, at least as of this writing. After many years wondering why someone hadn't put out plans for a C/L Slow Combat SE-5a, I decided to be that someone and stop waiting for anyone else to get the job done. I have cobbled together an SE-5a from the Sterling SE-5a control line scale model and adapted that to the SIG Fokker DVII profile. I have used the existing moment arms of the Sig Fokker DVII and stretched the profile of the Sterling SE-5a fuselage to fit. I have also used the Fokker's wing placement as this has already been proven to work, I don't believe in re-inventing the wheel when others have already done that. I learned early in modeling that if you take an existing design and modify a little here and there as long as you do not alter the moment arms or other critical design elements, you can have some fun making your own planes. I have taken that to heart and am offering this plan as part of a series of Slow Combat C/L bipes along the lines of the SIG WWI fighters. This aircraft can be powered by a .19 through a .35. It has a 33in wingspan. Includes 5in decals for the upper wing, 4in decals for the lower wing. Rudder markings and a pilot to be painted and finished to your hearts desire. In the works is a Fokker DR1 Tri-plane, and a Nieuport 28. BEWARE RED BARON! Thanks, George."

ScaleType: This (oz7714) 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/Royal_Aircraft_Factory_S.E.5
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.
