Help!
Royal/Marutaka plans from kits

Hello, I am opening this thread because I would like to gather and share good scanned copies of all Royal/Marutaka kit plans. They had beautiful scale models that were a pleasure to build and fly and since both companies are now out of business, I think there is no problem sharing their designs here.

The Marutaka company is no more, and neither is MK. If Kato san minds posting them, please let me know.

Some plans were recently posted elsewhere:

Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden: 1270mm span, .25 to .40 engines.
Messerchmitt Bf 109E: 900mm span, .051 to .10 engines
North American P-51D: 35 1/4" span, -049 to .09 engines

edit:
added preview images of the Raiden plan

... just following my policy: it is better that the plans are posted in multiple places, to ensure their preservation

There was also a Kawasaki KI-61 Hien kit plan in the same place.
Unfortunately, the file is too large to post on rcgroups. Some cleanup would surely help but I don't know if I can do it well.
http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/...?image_id=4325

The plan looks worn but is well scanned. Style is similar to the Marutaka plan but I do not see the name of the manufacturer.

Plan includes parts in reduced scale.
Span 1300mm, .19 to .25 engines

edit:
I tried to do some cleanup but the PDF is still too big. In ZIP file it should upload...
editedit:
removed the ZIP as "raglafart" has reduced file size

Some more. Just reposting from HPA

Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa: 59" span, .50 to .60 engines

For .049 to .10 engines:
Spitfire Mk.1 (I had to split the file to three parts for posting here)
Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero
F-4U Corsair
The Corsair plan is very fuzzy.

Royal/Marutaka Plans

Sorry - the physical size of the P-6E plans are the same as the C-47 they were scanned one after another on the same machine and for some reason the P-6E drawings are too large to post to the forum twice as large as the C-47 plans. Any suggestions? Cliffc

Note also that these drawings are ~37" X 57" and since my local Kinkos is limited to 36" there are some details clipped. I can scan them locally at home if someone actually needs them.

If the plan looks usable, you could post it at
http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/....php?cat_id=42
They accept pretty big files.

(you'd have to be member at the forum AND gallery there)

Some more Royal/Marutaka plans were posted at HPA:

Focke Wulf FW 190 A-8
F-61 Black Widow
Mini Mach (1/2A racer)
Mini Bird (bit like a small Ugly Stick)

... unfortunately, the Black Widow and Mini Bird files are too large to post here...)
Plans include parts templates.
