About this Plan

Pioneer. Towline glider from KK.

Quote: "Pioneer. 26 inch wingspan glider. All built-up construction, but strong and straightforward to build and fly. A good first model."

Note the Keil Kraft advert [see more pics 003] is from Aeromodeller, March 1972.

Hi, when I printed out the rib templates they have come out much bigger than they should. Have I done something wrong??

The print-wood was apparently scanned at a different scale than a the rest of the plan. Will be submitting a correction.

Shaun, I downloaded PDF viewer and made it my default viewer. I then selected; 'poster printing', and it should give you the option of the tile scaling on the left-hand side of your 'print' control panel. Make sure it's set at100%
John Green - 28/02/2021
John Green's suggestion will not work since the printwood is at a different scale than the rest of the plan. Page 2 would need to be printed at 72% in order to get the proper result. A corrected version of the plan has been submitted. This new version includes re-scaled printwood and complete rib profiles on the main plan. Please wait for it to be posted.
Jan Novick - 28/02/2021
For some reason, the printwood (page 2 of the plan) did not reproduce at the correct scale. Please use the rib profiles on the fuselage side view for accuracy. I will try ro submit a separate, properly scaled, page of the printwood.

Have split the plan and printwood into 2 files now. These look right to me :)

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
