Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Howdy Steve and Mary from Oklahoma USA! again...
As a retired aeroengineer I love oddball designs, the NAN 150 fits that bill. But it is a very busy, messy, slightly incomplete set of plans, so here is a picture of what the plans should look like (at least my best guess) if you tape them all together [pic 003]. I say incomplete because it is missing the fin mounting plate detail, and I still can't figure out the purpose or material of the lines running from the trailing edge of one rib, to the leading edge of the next.
To get my results you need to print:
3 copies of page one the proper way around,
2 copies of page two also the right way,
and 2 copies of page one as mirror image.
For us Yanks the drawing comes out nicely as single sheets on 11 x 17.
Thank you again for all your hard, dedicated work at keeping your site up, running and fresh.

I think the lines running from te of rib to le of rib are also ribs. It is a geodetic or criss cross rib structure.

I don't think there is a fin mounting plate.
The rear bamboo peg fits into the tube on the rear end of fuselage. The front piece of 1/32" ply slots into the sheeting above the rear rubber peg, it mentions sheet top only on the plan.
I suspect you cover the fus and fin first then slot them together an glue.

Take a look at one of John Pool's other designs Never Forget (oz9096) and all will be revealed!

* 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.
