About this Plan

Junkers Bremen. Rubber scale model.

Quote: "This model of the first, and so far the only, airplane successfully to span the Atlantic Ocean from East to West, starting from Dublin, Ireland, and landing at Greenely Islan, Canada, is made of strip spruce. If the plans are followed diligently an excellent flying model will be obtained. The real Bremen, you will rememeber, was piloted by Captain Herman Koehl, noted German pilot, and Major James Fitzmaurice, former member of the Royal Air Force of Britain. Baron Gunther von Huenefeld of Germany was financial backer and navigating passenger on the flight.

To begin contruction of the fuselage, first take the two pieces of spruce 1/16 x 1/16 x 18-1/2in and soak them in hot water for about ten minutes, then form them to shape as shown in drawings 3 and 4, using pins to hold the pieces until they are dry..."

    ScaleType: This (oz9825) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkers_W_33
    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.
