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

Hello, For this plan, I found this picture of Pierre Dupin (a truly great modeller and friend now deceased) with an electric powered "Surpriz" in his left hand and a regular rubber powered one in his right hand [model photo]. It shows what an elegant yet competitive design Rene Jossien could come up with. I think the Surpriz is a 1959 design of his. Best modelling regards.

Been looking closely at this plan with a view to building it. The only thing missing, it seems, are the tail ribs - part of one is shown at the bottom of the plan. They obviously got missed when the plan was scanned. Not really a problem as I was thinking of a symmetrical section instead.
I don't know if anyone can provide them though to make plan complete.

Regarding the horizontal stabiliser ribs, I think one can safely assume that King René used the same as he used on the Ailbass.

* 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.
