I just got started on my next project, a classic Kaos 60. I used the RCM plan because it has the ribs printed on the plan, whereas the Great Planes plan omits the ribs. They do not interchange and the RCM ribs do not fit the Great Planes version. The RCM ribs are not perfect either but close enough, fuselage sides need to be modified slightly to fit the root rib. You will notice only the right wing is shown on the plan. I was able to use Gimp to print the left wing view. You need to IMPORT the PDF file into Gimp, CROP out the right wing, FLIP HORIZONTAL, then EXPORT as a PDF. Give it a new name and you're ready to print. Also, it was easier for me to crop and print each part of the plan instead of taping the entire giant sheet together and cutting it apart, more accurate that way. Sounds like a whole lot of trouble but once you have it figured out, it's easy. Included is the left wing plan view, ready to print [supplementary file].

My latest project, a Kaos, is coming along. Once the wing is finished, every project moves closer to the first flight. I completed the wing covering last night with the wingtips, always a tough thing to finish [more pics 003]. Compound curves on the tips present a challenge for most any covering material, but Doculam handles it better than most. I got it all done with no wrinkles at all. Doculam on the wing is done but not yet shrunk tight except for the tips, will turn water clear with heat. Then I'll have to build the ailerons and hinge them before paint, using more Doculam for the hinges, no gap that way. The wing has to be finished before fuselage construction can begin because the RCM Kaos plans were not all that good, ribs didn't fit the fuselage very well. I'll have to re-draw the fuselage plan to fit the finished wing, not a big deal. Next time, I'll use the Great Planes plan and draw my own ribs. I'll use my usual spray can Rustoleum, best I've found for Doculam, trimmed with a second color masked off with vinyl shelf paper. Stay tuned for more pix as construction nears completion.

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.
