Envoy plan

Hogal, MPP :

Thanks for posting the Envoy plans. I like ff power drawings from this era for rc conversions. They look so lovely and unique. And I remember my building a Mam'selle fifty years ago and flew it freeflight. I can never forget how beautiful it looked circling twenty feet off the ground for the whole flight.

Thanks,
Using Photoshop I traced around the outside of the structure and filled that area with white. I think the trick is to do small "boxes" then join them up. It's a bit slow, took me a couple of days, but not hard.

The hardest part was straightening the crooked right side of the plan.

Then I just typed in the missing text.

Oh. OK.

I was hoping you knew a way that was just a couple of mouse clicks.

thanks,

Kk pixie

Dear all,
I am new to the forum and unsure if this is the correct means of asking for the following; however can anyone please point me to where I can download a scan of the printwood for the KK Pixie. I have the plan at 23" span but no printwood drawings and would like to be able to build this model.
regards,
Patrick.

What a lovely little plane that I built in the last century

Mine had two channel radio (27Meg), yellow and blue tissue cover and, of course, a Mills 0.75. Smiling just remembering her, always thought about building 1.5 times, which is just a couple of clicks on the CAD system, but never quite got round to it.

Maybe when the days get longer and the work less onerous!!!

Poacher, do you have that in a PDF? What size is the printwood drawing supposed to be (8.5x11" or 9"x12" or 3"x36" etc)? JPG files carry no size information in them so one user could print them on an A3 size paper where another might use A4 and yet another would get a printout that only covers 2 or 3 inches of a page. It is helpful if we know what size the printout is supposed to be and then we can adjust the output to match unless it is a PDF (and the user selects "no scaling").

just open or print it off at 100%.
the paper size is then irrelevant.

So the second templates page prints 3.25" x 5" of the page? That is what I get when I print 100%. The point I was trying to make is that if I use Windows Paint I get one thing and if I use Microsoft Photo Editor it prints yet another (at 100%) and Adobe Photoshop is another size. If you are a Mac user then things are different too. That is why I asked what size it is supposed to be when printed.

If the JPG's posted for the KK Pixie were full size than the attached PDF is correct.

To get the Pixie printwood from here to match the 23" plans from Hip Pocket, I printed the plans @ 100% and the printwood PDF rchopper56 posted @ 132%.

The plans @ 100% printed six 8-1/2" x 11" sheets of printer paper with cut marks and overlap set @ .005".

The printwood @132% fits on a single 8-1/2" x 11" sheet.

I'm using a Canon MX300 printer.

To summarize: Some tinkering to get things to match up may be required.

giuseppi, The print wood that I posted is 6" x 5.65" which will easly fit 8-1/2 x 11. Are you saying that we need to increase the printwood by 132%?

Does anyone have the printwood for this kit, It would be a wonderful RC build.
