Also some plans Rich on 'outer-zone' Link

**LINK**

You can print them off and glue together the tiled print-offs into a plan you can then scale up if need be.

Hi Rich, Thanks for your message ref the B&V215, basically I modified a free plan from RCME Jan 2011, which was for a depron pusher ( there are build blogs on here from around then, plus there is some YT footage of built pusher models flying). I have adapted this for slope and built it in balsa - basically the plan provIded a good outline shape for the fuselage and wing / winglets. I also used (as Mark has indicated above) the Outerzone plan to help with other details. For a 90mm edf I think the model would need to be scaled up- not sure to what span? The current wingspan is around 40 inches and the fuselage section approx 4 inches round ( its a flattened ellipse but approx 4 inches in section). The link provided by Martin (above) should also help in homing in on a plan. I do have the original RCME depron plan if that helps.

Attached are a couple of photos of the model as it is today. It took me three attempts to blow a canopy and I'm still not sure its right- so its just sat on top for now. Some detailing still needed ref decals etc but overall I'm happy with the result so far.

That is beautiful - great job! Time to find some very long grass for the CG test glides! Good luck... yes

Hello Harry. I have plans for the 215, for depron. Don’t want to mess them up though! How do I make the templete for bulkheads, ribs?

Trace them onto greaseproof paper? Photocopy then cut out and stick onto balsa? Many ways to skin that cat.

As with many of the often called secret German aircraft of the latter part of WW2, the majority did not exist at all.

Most are described as Brochure Tender documents, mainly for specifications issued by the RLM (Reich Luft Ministrium).

In a sense there is no absolute right, as even those that made it to mock-up, such as the Fw Flitter would have been modified in the light of requests primarily of the the RLM.

Great models though.

You could take them down to your local copy shop and make a copy and expand them in size.

I did this with my Sorcerer plan which I copied to a stick and then had enlarged and printed - making this

from this.

Interesting stuff Erflog. Yes a lot of modelling potential from the Luft '46 proposals and many RC models have flown successfully. I have been picking away at a PSS Flitzer glider which should be a good flyer I think with a layout similar to the Vampire.

The fuse, booms and canopy are hand made one offs.

Getting a bit more back on track, this is an inspiring vid of the maiden flight of a well presented EDF 215. Some initial teething problems are overcome and lead to a great flight.
