Quote: "Steve & Mary, You recently added a plan for Hurst Bowers' Mohawk Pinto to Outerzone. That scan has registration and scaling problems. I attach my scan from the November, 1964, issue of the French magazine M.R.A. as a replacement, cleanly registered and properly scaled to 33-1/4 in span. I also attach a scan of the accompanying construction article, in French of course. Web translation to English leaves a lot to be desired - it'd be nice if we could get it properly translated by an actual modeler."
Update 13/06/2018: Added article translated into English, thanks to Yannick.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
