well someones gota do it

Comet clipper ribs resized to fit Comets 72 in span plan. For those like me who often convert back to a graphic format the Plan I have is at 300 dpi and the ribs were at 400 dpi (which is good as it allows upscaling to be nice and clear) so I saved at 300 dpi and checked on the plan and they are the correct size.

Comet Clipper wing ribs

Many thanks to you both(Mark and Roger) for doing the work to produce the Clipper rib profiles. This is one of my favourites and will enable me to get the complete plane on the board.

Thanks Aeromeddeler.

Just a word of caution. I have not checked this particular plan, but from memory, mine had one wing side marginally wider chord-wise than the other, about 1/8th in so always best to check wing halves for symmetry before building.

Probably the way the plans were printed back them.

The best way to prevent different wing size is ALWAYS to use the same wing half. To build the other, just rub some 3 in 1 oil to the wing drawing, turn around the plan and proceed to build. Both panels will come out exact!! The plan will not be damaged. 3 in 1 oil evaporates in just a few days and the plan will be fine. Try it, you'll like it!!

WD-40 works well also.

Midwest Blue Ridge Comet?

This plan came up on an unrelated E-Bay search, and I have no recollection of this particular model. Although the listing says that it has a 42" span for .15 to .19 engines, the plan itself lists the wingspan at 62" and .25 to .40 engines. Perhaps the seller has reduced the printed size of the plan?

Flaps are optional, but there are no ailerons. Interesting . . .

I did a search on Outerzone and also on Hippocket Aeronautics with no results. It appears that the attached .jpg would not make a very good enlargement. Does anyone have any further info about this plane?
