User commentsWhere would one get the plans for the cabin version shown in the fotos?

It seems to me the cabin glazing was an afterthought, added later. You need plans showing the cabin? I doubt there are any original plans of that. Although it may be that later, re-drawn versions exist.

Tony Penhall made several Bowden's plans redrawings. He made in 1986 a more detailed Blue Dragon redrawn with glazing.

* 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.
