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 (oz8604) 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/Grumman_F6F_Hellcat
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.

Best to learn how to answer this for yourself. Then you have access to thousands of free plans you can use, without waiting for an answer from us. See the Knowledge Base page at KB 105: Checking the page size of a PDF plan for details.

I agree that a bit of study - namely the OZ Knowledge Base and the FAQ, both of which gave the author a lot of work so use them! - will do wonders for your autonomy. The rest can be learned through the two methods known as Trial and Error. you should try a mosaic print in A4 sheets with more or less margin, see what the system brings out, change your parameters, and Once More, Unto The Breach until it works! If it worked for me...
By the way, this plan looks like it shows a 12in wingspan, so for 13in you need a 108% scale factor.

* 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.
