Bleriot 510 (oz9824)
About this Plan
Bleriot 510. Paris Defender. Rubber scale model biplane.
Quote: "Paris Defender. By Alan D. Booton. Detailed plans for constructing another sensational flying scale model - the Bleriot 510, combining detail with the ultimate in performance.
THOUGH the name Bleriot recalls daring flights made in flimsy planes at the beginning of the present century, the Bleriot 510 is one of the latest French single-seater fighters, nine times faster than the first Bleriot. The top speed of the 510 is 231mph. It is powered with a liquid-cooled Hispano-Suiza engine of 500hp.
The model has the same snappy appearance and zest for flying. The construction is simpler than the usual flying scale model. Being much lighter. it will turn in longer, more graceful flights without fear of damage. The shockproof landing gear is a great help.
Fuselage. Prepare a 4 x 6in sheet of 1/16in plywood and cut out the formers. Assemble one half of the fuselage frame composed of half formers from A. to H. top and bottom longerons and the two stringers right on the drawing. When fully set, remove the half frame from the drawing and add like parts right on the first half. Now cement the formers B2 and C2 in place..."

* 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.
