This kit is not for beginners lots of sand to fit parts that can be tedious to novice builders.
You will want to use hard (high density) balsa. The frame design is not suitable for the softer (squishy) balsa.
Do not shrink the tissue paper.
Overall this is a fun little plane to build and fly. I did not use the aileron tabs in my builds and the plane flew well. I 3D printed a heavy propeller to get the CG to come out right. If the plans are followed this is a tail heavy plane. Zero wind or indoor flying is recommended as this is a rather small plane.

* 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.
