Wings of balsa ribs and spruce longerons. Great for beginners and easy flatland thermalling. Courtesy of Mr katzi who posted it in a Facebook groop."
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Hi Mary, I've just seen the daily update to your site, sporting Cormorano. I've uploaded the same files on an italian group a few weeks ago, being curious about your source I looked at the credit and saw a Mr Katzi. Well I think that you misunderstand the situation: there is no Mr Katzi, but Ehsti Katzi, a nick name I've choosed a long time ago. It's not a first and second name nick, instead is a modification of a italian vulgar dialectical exclamation. Look at that account on FaceBook.
Back to the model, it was a kit produced by Aviomodelli years ago, it happens that Aviomodelli was situated in my home town, Cremona, and is no longer in business, however they still own the original plant where I go occasionally. Attached is a photo I recently took of the original prototype [pic 003]. Ciao

* 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.
