I clearly remember getting the 1958 Aeromodeller Annual for Christmas and looking at this plan. I decided quite quickly that it was too big a project for an 11 year old, which was probably sensible. The model is a bit of a mystery. I've attached the photo from the VTH plans service that accompanies the Schnittke plan [model photo]. VTH states that ''the original was designed in 1936 and flown by famous pilots such as Udet, Riedel and Nitschke''. I assume that 'Rositten' on the plan refers to the gliding school in Rossitten (note different spelling). It was then Rossitten, East Prussia and is now Rybatschi, Kaliningrad. They definitely built gliders there in the '30s, and 'Motor As' translates from German to 'Motor Ace'. The registration on the plan photo is D-YGYF which records show to be a Gruse Bo15/1. Amazingly the Gruse is a dead ringer for the so-called 'Rositten-Motor-As'. So I am assuming that the 'Rositten-Motor-As' and Gruse are the same aircraft. Maybe someone has a better explanation? There's a YouTube video of a model Gruse (called GB 15/1):

* 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.
