About this Plan
Spad. Rubber scale model WWI fighter biplane.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "This is the Comet SPAD Kit 3105 from 1963 [main pic, 004-006]. 12" wingspan. I've seen lots of comments concerning this kit over the years, but no plan availability. So to satisfy that need I sorted through my personal archive, scanned it, etc. I constructed this kit years ago simply because I owned it and it had gathered dust long enough. What else can be worse than a kit that is unfulfilled? For the sake of presentation, I've fabricated some nicer scale-like wheels. Also altered the fuselage nose to more accurately represent its namesake. Thank you, Steve and Mary. Guynemer has finally come home. Neal Green"
29/03/2021: Added alternate plan scan, thanks to Pit. 1935, Ray Chevedden plan.
Supplementary file notes
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 (oz12909) 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/SPAD_S.XIII
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.

It looks a remake of 1935 Comet plan from Ray Chevedden designer, note the German language construction notes. Sent alternate distorted 1935 plan.

Thanks Pit. It seems to me the 1935 plan is different enough in construction to warrant splitting this into 2 listings. Does anyone out here have a nice clean scan of the 1935 plan? If so will split this, and start a new page.

Yet another wonderful construction that epitomizes the sheer beauty of the aircraft which you model.

* 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.
