About this Plan

Consolidated P30. Scale 2-place pursuit model.

Quote: "TheConsolidated Model P-30 is the latest of designs. Many refinements have been incorporated in the construction of this marvelous little pursuit ship. We advise you to take your time in building this model and you will be well repaid for your efforts.

In undergoing experimental flights, our laboratory found it to be an excellent flyer. Please note the great amount of detail built into this model, such as supercharger, the machine guns both front and rear, the sight and all other parts that make it an exhibition as well as a flying model.

All controls are movable with aluminum hinges. False ribs are used in the panels where necessary. If you wish a larger model, multiply these measurements by the required ratio of increase. The color scheme can be obtained from the cover of this issue.

Construction of fuselage. It is necessary to place a sheet of ordinary wax paper over the plan to prevent cement from sticking to the plan. In building the fuselage, construct one side at a time. The longerons, vertical and diagonal braces etc, are held in place until securely cemented by inserting straight pins on either side of strips.

After the two fuselage sides are completed they are pinned to top view of the plan in such a manner that the top longerons face down and the sides are at right angles with the table. The cross-members are now cemented in place forming a rectangular fuselage. The formers are now applied to the framework. Trace these from the plan on the 1/32 sheet balsa and carefully cut out with a razor blade.

The nose piece, having a 1/4-inch hole drilled through it, is next cut and shaped as shown on the plan..."

ScaleType:
  • Consolidated_P-30 | help
    see Wikipedia | search Outerzone


    ScaleType: This (oz939) 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/Consolidated_P-30
    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.
