Hello, here is a picture of my new Graupner mosquito [see more pics 006-007] built in 2017 with a 'retro'-transmitter. Best regards

Hello, enclosed photos of my Mosquito model [008-010]. I did not want to cut balsa into shape, so I built the stabiliser piece by piece. If you want to built it this way, there is the metric ruler to check up the dimensions... List of materials: 4 x 10mm Balsa „hart“, Stege 4 x 4 Balsa, Ruderblatt: Endleiste 4 x 20 mm, Mitte 4 x 10 Balsa, Stege 2 x 4 mm Balsa.
Sorry, I did not translate it into English, but I think you will understand...
Many Greetings,
Reinhard - 05/01/2021

* 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.
