User comments

Nibbio Lu correct name, by Mario Fumagalli. The suffix Lu is short for Lugano (Switzerland), it's probably added to differentiate this model from other Nibbio plans (Nibbio is a bird, common name for Italian model gliders). Emilio Biraghi commercialized this plan, he was a modeller and small entrepreneur of modelling industry in relationship with the near Swiss towns. Probably Fumagalli was based in Lugano, where many Italian workers are employed still today.

* 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.
