I am attaching some pictures of my Cortazar 85, scratch build from Mr. Orlando Blanchero plans, published on your site [model pic & more pics 003, 004]. The final weight came to 59.2 Grs, including the nose weight to balance it. The covering is gift wrapping paper, that I chose to use because the colours were bright and easy for me to find in the local store. It shrinks well with water and alcohol, later I spray some Krylon to protect the tissue. As you can see I modified the wing and stabilizator attachment systems, and maybe I will need to set a dethermalizer later. Now I must wait some weeks more to allow the snow to melt away for the first flight. I will keep you posted on the flying results. I am in Alberta Canada and spring is just around the corner, thank you for the Outerzone site, is wonderful!

* 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.
