About this Plan

Bristol Fighter F2B. Scale model for rubber power.

Quote: "We have had a great number of requests for plans of popular wartime models. The Bristol Fighter shown here is a trim little model with very fine flying qualities.

The shock-absorbing axle and tail-skid eliminate damage to the ship when landing. All control surfaces are movable with aluminium hinges. These and many other excellent features devloped by our laboratory make the Bristol Fighter F2B a very interesting model to construct.

All dimensions can be quickly and accurately determined by placing a ruler on the part to be measured. The plan is printed full size. If you wish a larger model, multiply this measurement by the amount of increase.

Construction. The fuselage sides are built from 1/16 square balsa. The longerons, verticals, diagonal braces, etc, are held in place until securely cemented, by inserting straight pins on ether side of strips wherever needed, having first placed wax paper on top of plan to prevent parts from sticking..."

    ScaleType: This (oz9148) 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
    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.
