Quote: "Dear Mary, here is a redrawn plan of Le Timide. Thanks, Martin"
Quote: "But what I consider more meritorious than building the model itself is the reconstruction of the plan, its clarity and the addition of missing ribs. This plan should in no way replace the original plan! On the contrary, it is primarily intended to complement it in order to make the construction of this beautiful French model more pleasant. I will send my supplementary drawing to the outerzone website so that it is publicly available."
Update 28/1/2022: Added article in Czech language, features build pics of his model, as featured in RCR 7/2021, thanks to Martin Hurda.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

What wizardry is this? How does a stopped model keep her tail off the ground in the absence of visible means of support?

Looks to me from this frame, it has just landed - not yet stopped.

* 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.
