Quote: "Davey Systems Corporation. DSC Eindecker Building Instructions.
The stand-way-off scale EINDECKER that you are about to build is a convertible kit, permitting use of a 1/2A engine or a 05/075 electric motor, such as the DSC 075 HYPERTHRUST motor that is supplied with the special version of this kit. You also have a choice of a 36 or a 40 inch wing. We recommend the 40 in version, particularly if you are building the heavier electric motor option.
In building the kit, we suggest you use the new cyanocrylate adhesives, both the thin and the gap filling types with an accelerator when required. Prior to starting, look over the plans and kit contents carefully to became familiar with the kit and the construction. The choice of motor or engine option is explained as you progress. You can always change to the engine from the motor by covering the motor hole with a small piece of plywood.
The EINDECKER is built from die and machine cut balsa and plywood. It is not a complex kit. Parts are bagged for your convenience and are easily identified. If you follow the instructions and don't rush, you will have a durable, great flying model that you will be proud of.
WING: The wing is constructed in the normal manner. Keep in mind that the pre-cut parts as supplied are accurate. If there appears to be a fit problem, it will be because the plan has stretched during the blueprinting process. Before you start, cover the plans with waxed paper or a clear plastic sheet, such as the leftover carrier sheet from your last covering job. The wing is built in three pieces and put together with the 1/32 plywood brace and the 3/32 balsa gussets. whether you build the 36 or the 40 in version the method is the same.
1. Position the bottom spar over the plans and pin in place. Cut the spar in two places under the two 1/16 W-2 ribs.
2. Position and glue all of the W-1 ribs in place. Cut 1/16 in off of the top and bottom of two W-1 ribs for the center section as shown which is planked with 1/16 balsa sheet.
3. Position and glue in place the leading and trailing edges. Position and glue the 3/16 square wing tips.
4. Cut the three W-2 ribs in half at the rear edge of the spars. Cut, fit and glue the bottom center sheeting between the leading edge and the spar and the spar and the 1/4 x 3/8 rear. Two of the W-2 ribs are made by trimming off 1/16 in from a W-1 rib... "

* 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.
