    ScaleType: This (oz8108) 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/Messerschmitt_Me_262
    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.

It's not an OZ fault, but I think the 4mm balsa former G5 (for the engine nacelle) should be marked G7. The original G5 former is made from ply is correctly marked. I'm really tempted to build this with two EDF's.

Hi there, I am building a ME262 from your plans for which I am very grateful. I must be stupid but I can't understand how to assemble the engines, can you please help.
Doug Hoareau - 19/11/2019
You have two option. First: single engined version with engine in the nose, see partial nose sketch. Dummy jets on the wings.
Second: double engined version with engines on the jet nacelles only, see engined nacelles sketch.
But you have to decide firstly what version to build.

Hi. Under the drawing of G3, there's an isometric view of how the top half of the engine nacelles are built. The main nacelles are built the same way i.e. cut out G8 'Gondel-Brett' (Nacelle Board) shown on the nacelle plan view and pin it to your building board. Glue on the G7 and G5 formers vertically to G8. I can't find G7 on the drawing, but I assume it's G5 without the hole. Then wrap the assembly with 3mm balsa. After that, add the 20mm front and rear formers and spend a happy few hours shaping these.
The engine nacelles are detachable and have dowels which plug into the assembly on the wing (shown in that isometric sketch) and retained by a bolt at the rear. Just like a wing is often attached to the fuselage. You can see the full assembly in the side view.

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.
