This is nice. Can anyone put a date to this one? Also a pic of the box art - or indeed a scan of the printwood? Thanks

Hi, You don't need the printwood for this one - all the sheet balsa parts are drawn on the plan. It was the last of the larger KK rubber scale models to remain in production - I'd guess until about 1955. I had one as a Christmas present around 1951, still have the plan and down the years have built about half a dozen of them! Just can't resist that multi-spar wing! Sorry, can't help with the box, no recollection of colour etc but I think it had a photo like one of those on the plan.

Piper Cub 26,5 inch ws, was introduced in the very first Keil Kraft catalog booklet of 1946.

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.
