About this Plan
Fuit. Coupe d'Hiver competition rubber model.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Hello, To complement E. Bennet's 1996 interpretation of Jean-Pierre Beissac's Fuit 3 (oz9829), please find herewith the authentic plan of 'Fuit' by Jean-Pierre Beissac, as published full-size in Modèle Magazine issue number 92, December 1957. It shows details of the thin airfoils used and construction of the model with its hardwood wing spar.
Also included is the article with English translation and the report of the 1958 Coupe d'Hiver, also with English translation.
Jean-Pierre Beissac had won the first three places, the engine of his Citroen 2CV running for most of the competition with the models inside between flights in an attempt to keep them dry.
I was fifteen at the time and a contestant, placing in the penultimate position with an own design model. At least, I had beaten someone and learned that a true Coupe d'Hiver model must be as waterproof as possible.
Thrity years later I had better luck with René Jossien's Ailbass (oz8240), the prettiest Coupe dHiver ever designed.
Thanks again for the Outerzone, it is precious to all of us builders.
Best modelling regards, Jean-Marie Piednoir"

* 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.
