Nikolina - Rubber Coupe D'Hiver model.
Quote: "A CHANCE DISCUSSION between visiting French Wakefield expert Marc Cheurlot and West German Wakefield flyer Oskar Ehmann during 1963 proved to be the origin of the adoption of the Coupe d'Hiver class of rubber driven model by the German Aero Club. So contageous was Marc's enthusiasm for these little Winter Cup models that Oskar was inspired to promote the idea in his own country. Fifteen year old Uli Schmid won the first event with 'Nikolina'.
Commence construction of the fuselage by building the base over the plan view and cutting the longerons to accurate length but leaving the first two bays unconnected (1/8 x 1/8 in cross piece and sub stringer left out). Make the top over the base, but terminating at the tall platform. Fret the 1/16 plywood nose former and then cement top and bottom fuselage longerons to it, making sure the right thrust is 1/12 in as shown.
Pin the base flat over the plan view and fit uprights from u/c position to the motor peg (4 bays constant depth) then add uprights at fin trailing edge position and fill in other uprights and cross braces with sub stringers at nose as well as tail platform. Take care to make sure all is square over the plan. The fin should be offset as shown and all gussets added.
Distance from the motor hook to the motor peg should be set to suit the motor used..."

* 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.
