The Sterling rubber powered 18" span Super Cub is semi scale. The best and most accurate one is the Guillows, and it flies very well.

Fokker Triplane and Scrambler


Good morning all, well in the UK at least. I have now finished watching the TT's for this year and already booked to get to the Isle of Man next year. It's a shame that the Senior had to be cancelled this year but that is the way it goes with the weather. Well done to all the lads, big names and little guys, who took part.

Now away from motorbikes and,from the Aeromodeller of November 1951, I present the Fokker Triplane and Scramber and two more different plane's you couldn't meet.

The Triplane is a free flight scale designed model by P.E. Norman. The designer's name speaks for itself as far as accuracy and functionality are concerned. The model is designed for 2.5 to 3.5 cc motors turning nothing less than an 11" x 6" prop, certainly a nice diesel with loads of torque is being asked for here. Trimming such a plane would call for the utmost patience and dedication, or would three or four channel radio be better.

The Scramble, on the other hand, is a Class 'B' team racer. A very sleek and well designed model from the start of the Team Race history. There certainly no room for drag in this design. By the 1951 season it already had a string of victories to it's name. A credit to it's designer Johnny Jones.

As always with my drawings they are tracings from scans of the original articles and so may contain inaccuracies. If you choose to build from them please take care. The Triplane plan is in colour because I couldn't get the Black and White print below 3MB, if you would like a copy of it please send a mail.

Enjoy your day

Al

hlsat,

Thanks - that's great - but your link is 'all Greek' - to most of us

By the way - with respect - the English phrase is 'high wing' - not 'upwing'...

Ah, yes. That's what Google Translate is for. It's not perfect but opens up the rest of the world that doesn't speak english to us.

Isn't that cool?

...it was a joke - an old saying - "it's all Greek to me"...

...and Google Translate is just as bad as Babelfish
