Freeware PDF Creator?

Hello. Can anyone suggest a freeware PDF creator? I tried the Nitro program suggested elsewhere here but it wouldn't allow creating PDFs from multiple files.

thanks

Nieuport 161

These scans are the Whitman Nieuport 161. I bought the plan that the scans were taken from off of eBay and it was only fair quality at best. Nevertheless, an interesting and quite elegant French aircraft and hopefully, someone will take on the challenge of cleaning up the plan and re-posting here sometime in future.

These scans are a Joe Ott design I think, although might be a Whitman. They are generally cleaner than the Nieuport-161 I posted earlier but again, need to be printed off and taped together or 'stitched' together with some program. A fairly rare aircraft but nice lines.

This Nieuport 161 plan looks like a challenge. I think I will tackle it and will post it here when finished.

Nibor, after preparing a rough composite of the Nieuport 161 plan I find we are missing a scan. It is the bottom left corner of the side of the plan with the fuselage formers. Can you get me that scan?

Hey Planeman

Take a look at the Air Trails plans I posted of the Key & Ugly Duckling aswell as the Caudron. I got them just as you see them in peices so theres no overlap. on matter what I do thay won't match up or come out right when scannig or scaleing with the magic gimp program I'm sure it's most likely my inexperience any pointers on what to do. I feel thay are worth posting here and should be fixed maybe you could give them a try.

Super 60

Thought y'all would like to see this pic of my Super 60 on dead stick finals at Ladybrand airfield, Eastern Free State, South Africa a couple of years ago.

Cheers

Looks like a nice flare to a 3-pointer there....

I built one of these a few years ago but reduced the dihedral by half and added strip ailerons not that I did any aeros with it but I did get my BMFA 'A' ticket with it. Mine was powered by an OS FS 40 Surpass and pootled about on a quarter throttle most of the time...bliss!

Kenny e `s Caudron C/L from Air Trails
Planemans got enough on his plate with building his electric chair whilst stirring his pudding with his giant wooden spoon.
Have done the Caudron so much posted over the past month still wading through it . On the D`s at the moment.

So many plans so little time

Boeing P26A

Here is a control line Boeing P26A from MAN. The headrest fairing on this one seems to me to be more accurate than most plans I have seen. The fairing seems to be all over, to low, too high and sometimes just outrageous. I do have a 300 DPI file in various formats, if any one needs it email me.
