About this Plan

Rhoenkaempe. German Antique Flying Wing.

Quote: "Hi all, A while ago I bought a set of German antique model plans from which this is one of them. As you will know, the Rhön is the central place from which the development of gliders started in the 1920s. The term 'Kämpe' means something like 'strong, bold fighter' and as this plan dates from the early 1930s (33 to 34 I presume) it should 'educate' young boys in terms of Hitler-Germany.
Nevertheless I think it flies well because the cover boasts: 'Winner of the Rhön-Contest in 1935 and 36'
I added the German building description and a Postscript file (.eps) of the parts that can be cut with a Lasercutter. Every CAD program should be able to open or import it since it is a vector-drawing format. You can even print it with a laserprinter (print it with the Acrobat reader in Poster-Mode along with cutting marks to get the whole drawing, you have to glue the pages together, although), cut out the parts and glue them to cardboard (1 mm or thicker) to get templates for cutting the parts.
I hope you like it!"

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

* 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.
