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

User commentsPrinted out plans (had to split the pdf) and when printed the plans are reduced. Fan diameter is almost 3.5 inches.. Printing at 142 thru 142.8% percent of original yields 4.9” to 5.0” fan size…

Matt, the plan is indeed too small. The wing span is just 38 7/8 inches. An enlargement of 142.8% will bring the wing span to its stated 55 1/2 inches, but the duct diameter will still be too small. I'd suggest starting with the actual size of the fan and motor unit you intend to use and then scaling from there. If you supply your target dimensions, I'd be able to submit a correctly scaled plan that you can print and build from.

Jan would you be able to scale this to fit a 40mm edf for me please?

* 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.
