User commentsI can kludge my way through most of this French plan, for example the wood dimensions are clearly in millimetres. The 10/10 and 8/10 measurements for sheet and wire are leaving me a little lost though. I know what sizes I would use but was wondering if someone could help with what the plan really says there.

I believe the measurements are referenced as tenths of a milimeter. 8/10 would be 0.8mm (~ 0.030in, 20awg); 10/10 would be 1mm (~ 0.040in, 18awg). For balsa size, 1mm lies just between 1/32 and 3/64 of an inch. I hope this helps.

Hello both, here are the pictures of my C.B 6 that I just finished [main pic, 004]. Plus one with the C.B 23, its big brother [005, 006]. Friendly regards. Good luck to you ;-)

* 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.
