DFS Olympia

At the above mentioned Czech site (http://www.sam78.cz/apr_list/index.php) is the DFS Olympia glider.

I cleaned up the file a bit, and for the second attached file enlarged it to the wingspan noted in the title block (1192 mm). For Mother England and some of us wild colonials, that is 46.93 inches. The enlarged plan is 24.4" x 37.1".

If you want this plan enlarged to a different wingspan or in a different file format, send a PM.

Enjoy!

Here is an italian glider of 1947 by Ercole Arseni. The plan was sold by the "Aeromodelli" model shop in Rome. 150 cm of wingspan.

You're welcome!
The Aclis is a very good slope canard. Just in case, regarding the funny shape of the fuselage formers, on left side you have the section of a fiberglass fuse laminated around a polystirene plug, while the right side is the section of a traditional built-up fuse.

I did catch that on the fuselage formers. Wasn't sure why but thanks for the clarification. Beautiful plane and I've been getting it over into my cad program. Playing with idea of hanging an electric motor on it and a set of wheels. Even with these add-ons it looks great. I also ran the dimensions through my canard CG calculator and what's shown on the plan is spot on.

Thanks again,

Don

Edimodel, I'm browsing the reprints of your magazine, now. Thank you very much for sharing them. There are so many wonderful plans in them. I'm using your English-Italian modeling dictionary and Google Translate to great advantage.

Sono molto grato.

I'm glad you like it David. By the way my name is Cesare (just like Brutus dad...) and when those magazines were printed I wasn't on this earth (I was born in 1954). Anyway Modellismo was a very innovative publication and the first "real" model magazine in Italy. In fact, during the thirties and up to 1944, the only magazine was "L'Aquilone" (The Kite) which also covered aeromodelling, but it was mainly an aeronautical propaganda mill for the youth and a brainchild of the fascist ministry of aviation and world famous pilot Italo Balbo.

Hello, Scott..? I just registered, so am a total newbie... I came to the site while looking for plans / pictures / anything on the Graupner C/L kit models of 1957-59, the Ultra Stunter and (I think) the Super Stunter, this second name may be incorrect. I have some stuff on the Ultra Stunter but anything else is welcome please. The models look similar to each other but one is for a larger engine.. I think. They are great performers. Thank you from Peter.

I'm not sure how to translate Italian/English. Just what do you click on to view the older issues?
