Comet Taylorcraft Cub - printwood scan


The Comet Taylorcraft Cub (18in , kit 3211) was posted a while back by 50+AirYears, back here - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=5983 - well the interesting thing is someone has very kindly today emailed me in a 300dpi colour scan of the printwood for it. Does anyone here have the skill and patience to fix those two up together into a final plan? It's a bit beyond me. Here's the scan.

You must be referring to Aeromodeller Vol.23 No.269, easier identified as the June 1958 issue.

I cleaned up the PW you posted. The printing on it says 'Taylor Cub Kit 3602. Hmmm...

Excellent, thanks. As far as I can tell, it looks like the printwood does match this plan exactly. It's curious about the plan numbers being different... but this is the only Comet Taylor Cub plan at 18inch span that I have, and they do seem to match up and fit perfectly. I'll have another look and check some more. Thanks for the clean up work. Nicely done.

Comet Taylorcraft Cub - printwood done


Ok, I've tweaked the scaling so the parts fit as well as possible and the span is 18in, and saved the 2 together as a 2 page pdf, complete. All done. I hope this works out and someone actually builds the critter just to check it's correct.

Have fixed a typo where former F7 was actually labelled as F9, but anyone who got to cutting out parts would see and catch that, I'm sure.

Have uploaded the final plan on Outerzone at - http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1629 - dont want to repost it on this thread since it's dated 1963, ie later than 1960.
