About this Plan
Minimoa. Radio control scale glider model. This is a modern redrawn plan, in PDFvector format.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz7090) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Göppingen Gö 3
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsAm I missing something? No cross sections for the fuselage?

No, I don't think you're missing anything. This is all we have. It is tagged as 'formers unchecked'.

This being a kit I'd guess the formers were supplied pre-cut, so the designer saw no need to show them on the dwg. To me that's a wrong policy if that was the case, you never know how bad your next crash will be and new formers may be needed.
Right, so the fuse formers are missing but I see the Venerable Oz carries six other Minimoa plans. If this were my problem I'd download them all and see which one has the former location closer to this plan. Then it would be a simple matter of scaling up or down, and perhaps extrapolating and adapting a bit if the distribution is not exactly the same.
Apart from this detail, one has to recognize it is a beautiful drawing :-)

As explained in a construction blog, it is an enlarged and reinforced plan from the Keil Kraft 50 Minimoa (oz1033), look here for the formers and follow the blog: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?814213

I don't think the formers were ever published. Vintage1 posted the plan as it appears here, without the formers, on RCGroups in 2008. He was working for Replikit, and was publicising a soon-to-be-released kit from Replikit. To the best of my knowledge that kit never appeared, although I believe the plans and designs from Replikit were later bought up by Vintage Model Co. If you check the VMC website today, there is a 100 inch Minimoa kit here see: https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/100-minimoa... I guess that's the one.

* 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.
