Fokker D-8. Scale WWI German fighter, rubber power model.
Quote: "The German Fokker D-8 went into action in 1918 - shortly before the end of World War 1. One of the finest fighters of its day, the D-8 was powered by a 110 hp Oberursel rotary engine. Armament was two Spandau machine guns firing through the airscrew and top speed was 115 mph plus. The wing was covered with plywood and the tail surfaces with fabric.
Study the plan carefully and follow these instructions and no difficulty should be experienced. All the parts on the printed sheets have a reference number so that their position in the structure may be easily located. Some of these parts are small and delicate so it is a good idea to cut them out only as they are required. Use a metal straight edge as a guide when making straight cuts. Cover the plans with a sheet of greaseproof paper before starting to build. The following construction sequence has been planned to cut the building time to a minimum... "
Update 28/11/11: this plan now includes a printwood scan.
Update 01/09/2014: Resized this plan to correct scale at 16in wingspan, thanks to Howard.
Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
