Quote: "David's latest offering is an Exact 1/5th Scale Kawasaki Ki-45 Toryu. Suitable for R/C competition, a museum static display and/or everyday enjoyment at your R/C flying field! A variety of unique Scale Paint Schemes were documented that allows you to build a one of a kind aircraft for yourself!
David's 1/5th Scale design is an excellent flyer with stable flight and landing characteristics. The aircraft can be powered by two 50cc gas motors but a few flyers are building theirs with equivalent electric motors..."

* 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.
