User commentsOn March 18th 2019 you published a plan of the "Adler". I would like to add some information about the model. It was constructed by Friedrich Reiss in 1952 and the plan was distributed by Sperl Modellbau a long time ago. The Austrian Adolf Helfert reconstructed the model and modified some parts for RC and he also offered a cnc milled set of plywood parts which were distributed by Fa. Kirchert in Vienna. A couple of years ago I built an "Adler" myself [model photo & more pics 003]. As far as I know, 25 to 30 modified Adlers were built in Austria and are (hopefully) still flying. Best regards from Austria.

* 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.
