About this Plan

North American B-25 Mitchell. Profile scale twin model for CL.

Quote: "The Mitchell, by Vern Schroder. Twin engines excite all ukie fans. Trouble is ships always seem to an impractical scale monster or some hot stunt junkie with an extra mill. This B-25 for .09’s or .15’s.

During World War II, the North American B-25 'Mitchell' added three historic firsts to a remarkable record. It was the first USAAF bomber to sink an Axis submarine after our entry into the war, the first AAF bomber to attack the Philippines after they were captured by the Japanese, and perhaps the most famous first of all, the daring Tokyo attack by General Doolittle on April 18, 1942.

Our model is built to a scale of 5/8 in = 1 ft, giving it a span of 42 inches, length of 32 in, and weight of 30 oz. Engines of .09 to .15 displacement are recommended. However, for top performance with .09 engines, keep the weight down as much as possible, especially at the tail. Our model was considerably tail heavy, but in spite of several ounces of nose weight for proper balance, it has flown successfully on one Arden .099 engine.

Tail surfaces: Cut the elevator and rudders from medium 1/4 in sheet balsa and sand them to an airfoil cross sec- tion shape... "

    ScaleType: This (oz8115) 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/North_American_B-25_Mitchell
    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.

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.
