Blackburn Ripon (oz13172)
About this Plan
Blackburn Ripon. Peanut scale rubber model biplane.
Note this plan is a free download from Mike Stuart's most excellent FF scale site at http://www.ffscale.co.uk/plans23.htm
Quote: "The outlines are accurate according to the 3-view I used, which you can find here except I made the nose more streamlined based on a photo of my subject aircraft in the book 'Fleet Air Arm Aircraft, Units and Ships 1920 to 1939' by Ray Sturtivant (Air-Britain Publications). However, I have increased the dihedral a bit to ensure stability.
To get a scale rib spacing at minimum weight, about two thirds of the ribs are indicated only by sliced upper ribs – only the remaining third have top and bottom strips..."
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 (oz13172) 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/Blackburn_Ripon
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.

* 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.
