About this Plan

Ripslinger. Fantasy scale model, for rubber power. Wingspan 16 in.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi Steve and Mary, I was going through some of my older plans and came across the 'Ripslinger' Racing Plane from the Disney Pixar Movie 'Planes'.

This is a Fiction Flyer as per Flying Aces Club Rules:
VIII-7.0 FICTION FLYER For models of fictional aircraft as depicted by original artwork on covers and in stories of published fiction magazines or books such as Flying Aces, as well as in children’s books and fantasy novels. Scale airplanes used in fiction stories are not eligible (Example: the Grumman Skyrocket used in Blackhawk comics).
A. Fiction Flyer models may not compete in any other FAC events. B. Wingspan limit: Single engine: 22” Multi-engine: 25” C. Minimum documentation shall be a published illustration of the aircraft. Color and markings may be changed, but should reflect theera and spirit of the original illustration. Contestants are encouraged to flesh out their source documentation with 'scale docs' of theirown creation, especially where this contributes to the judging of “Construction and Detail” scores. D. All scoring (Scale, Bonus Points, Flight Points, Total Score) as per FAC Rubber Scale (See pgs. 5-7 sections III-1.1 to III-1.4).1. Scale points: Pertinent scale details typically found on real aircraft must be included, such as exhaust stacks, landing gearoutlines, etc. even if these details are not obvious in the reference artwork.

I drew this plan for my good Free Flight (always capitalized) buddy who ran Stick and Tissue website till recently. Anyone who's seen the film knows that Ripslinger was the villan. So this is a plan for that villan in 16" span. I hope that it will be a fun build for anyone wanting something different. There are tons of pictures and color scheme documents on the internet to help in painting or coloring your model. Enjoy, Tom Akery/Sky9pilot"

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.
