From Modellismo n.4 Oct. 1993. First year of magazine publication. But Modellismo is a magazine reborned from ash of the old Modellismo magazine (1940-50-60) so each number has the following numeration too in the honour of the last old editions. (XII-76) actually means 22th years of publication , number 76.

Aha. Ok got it, thanks Pit.

Glad to find this plan. I just inherited an original kit with everything but the plan. I could have gotten it close with the printwood and the overall dimensions advertised on the box (26" span, 19" long) but it's nice to have the plan.
When I build it I'll come back and upload some photos. Thank you!

* 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.
