Quote: - "Here are the parts for the Sterling Piper Tri-Pacer 135 with 1.11 meters wingspan (44 inches). I copied them from original die cut wood scans from a kit. They had terrible mistakes that I tried to correct the best I could. Sterling models were nice kits and flew great but their balsa die cut sheets were a pain in the neck!! Rock hard balsa and poor cutting and parts deformation. However, they could be successfully built if you had a lot of patience and they always flew beautifully. I am starting my own version of this Tri-Pacer which will be covered with the same livery of my late Father's Tri-Pacer that he owned way back in 1950. I have my own laser cutting machine and if anybody needs a short kit I can do it. Also, of several other models. Greetings from Colombia!!"

Supplementary files

Item1: Decal sheet. Item 2: Redrawn printwood file (12 pages) thanks to Edubarca. Item 3: Printwood parts scan from original (zipfile, 3 pages). Note these scans are hard to read, to see the printed lines against the woodgrain.


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.
