About this Plan

US Transport Glider. Towline glider sport model.

Note parts are shown at full size, general layout is shown at 1/3 scale.

Quote: "Hello, Looking through the recent June 1944 Aeromodeller in the RCLibrary I was much taken by the plan for a US Transport Glider so I took 3 good sized screen-shots and used Photoshop to join the sections into a composite. Many thanks for your efforts."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Note it seems this plan appeared in the Aeromodeller with no article, just the drawing.

Note this plan was extracted from scan of June 1944 Aeromodeller at RCLibrary, thanks to Stormin, Mary see https://rclibrary.co.uk/title_details.asp?ID=2673

3 good sized screen-shots and Photoshop to join? You don't need to do that, go to PDF995.com and download the full suite. One of the programs inside - pdfedit995 - among other things does sheet extraction no less, so you can pull out the entire plan.
I just did exactly that on the very same plan and I took much longer finding the magazine and the plan inside than the few seconds the actual extraction took. And it's free too but the license fee is so low and the whole lot works so well that it's worth the cost several times!
When downloading from the site the order in which program components have to be downloaded and installed may be somewhat misleading but if anything fails it's easy to see where you went wrong and go back. I know, I do that every time. :-)

Other free options would be Gimp or PDFsam. I use both to extract single pages from pdf files.

Or just drop the whole thing into Photoshop, usually that should work and in the dialog window you can choose the page(s) you want to import.

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.
