Cloud-Dozer - Cloud Dozer by Vince Bentley, 72in span petrol free flight model. Printed in five instalments in Model Aircraft magazine, from May through to September, 1946.
Quote: "This month brings the first instalment of the building instructions for the six-feet span duration model 'Cloud-Dozer' and we start with the wing. The ribs come first, so start by drawing out all the ribs full size, plotting them out by way of the usual methods from the ordinates given on the plan. Cut out two of each rib and half rib from 1/8in thick medium balsa sheet, with the exception of rib No 1, which should be cut from 1/4in thick hard sheet, and faced on one side with 1mm ply..."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
