AD-2 Skyraider (oz13535)
About this Plan
Douglas AD-2 Skyraider. Scale model for control line or radio control.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Dear Steve, Another plan from Modellismo magazine and again I have no idea of the date. Well drawn, the components are full size as is the tailplane. But if you look carefully you will see the span is 1110 mm and the length 828 mm [edit: fixed scaling now]. Sorry about the opaque paper but I know you will sort it out. Yours Richard Falconer"
Update 1/1/2022: Added article, thanks to Pit.

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 (oz13535) 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/Douglas_A-1_Skyraider
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.

User commentsI knew Giuseppe Ciampella since I was a child in the 60'. He run a model hobby shop in Roma until 80'. He sold plans an kits under the (abbreviation of his name) Ci-Gi Italia Model brand. But most of the models were barely copied or modified/simplified from USA plans and kits, in particular Berkeley kits he sold in his shop.
In this case, to me, it's evident, from some particular like cabin hatch or wing structure the derivation from Douglas AD-2 Skyraider (oz917) the 1951 Air Trails Cal Smith's Skyraider. Pit

* 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.
