Hannover CLIII (oz12874)
About this Plan
Hannover CLIII. Peanut scale WWI biplane.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Here's a rare model subject...with its crazy biplane tail...the Hannover CLIII from WW1…peanut scale. The idea behind the biplane tail was to increase the field of fire for the rear gunner...much the same as was done with the Mitchell and Liberator bombers (and others) of WW2. I first read of the Hannover when I was a boy...reading Rickenbacker's Fighting The Flying Circus. Seems Rick and a couple of his squadron mates forced one down over their own aerodrome, intact...used it as a squadron hack (taxi) for a period of time.
The area around the gunner's ring-mount is unsupported tissue...applied wet and allowed to form-fit as it dried. Worked out nicely...I thought. Also...found a use for that tiny Comet Models prop...won't fly anything...but looks the part. Model was constructed around 1990."
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz12874) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannover_CL.III
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Where did you find a hexagon-shaped brush for those wings? :-) Jokes apart it is a finely made model, and I see the plan hits all the positive points. Well done sir, well done.

* 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.
