About this Plan

SE5 - Rubber scale model WWI fighter. Wing area 270 sq ins. Plan shows oil-filled reduction gearbox. Scale is 1/12.

Quote: "Tail areas have been increased slightly but otherwise the model is an exact miniature of the actual machine except of course the propellor. I wish to point out that although the structure has been kept fairly simple it is by no means a beginner's model; but anyone that has constructed two or three duration models should find no difficulty.

First build two flat sides as per elevation, remove from building board and add frames 1,5,6 and 9 also adjacent cross pieces, tue up and allow to set. Fit remaining frames and cross pieces, also the top centre stringer from nose to cockpit and 1/16 stringers from frames 6 to 9. Fix all diagonals and gussets..."

* 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.
