Youngsters not familiar with reading plans and building may not notice that the wing ribs are mislabeled. What is called C2 in profile view is shown in the place of what is actually C1 in plan view. The designation is reversed between profile and plan views. You do not want all the wing ribs cut to accommodate the mounting platform - just those in the wing center section. A minor revision to the electronic file will easily fix that. Just relabel the profile views.

* 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.
