Transavia PL-12 Airtruk

Not known's Transavia PL-12 Airtruk

The Transavia Airtruk was built by Transavia Corporation, a subsidiary of Transfield Limited, which was actually a heavy steel construction company. A bit left field to have an aviation branch, eh? Years ago I climbed all over their last production unit, took all the measurements and about 100 detail photos, then 90 percent finished a set of plans. I left the hobby for a while and sold all this Airtruk gear along with my other gear. Very regretful. For years following re-entry into the hobby I tried to find a set of plans for an Airtruk, and finally ferreted out a set, which are here. I have other detail pics, factory manuals, etc, and will try and incorporate these somehow. Otherwise just contact me. Also, please observe that the model in the thumbnail is actually a larger version of just under 3.0m span, many of which are floating around, so there may be these larger plans available somewhere on the web.

The Airtruk contains a one ton hopper which feeds boom sprays mounted on the stubby lower wing. It is a fairly nimble cropduster, and to my last recollection, a cropdusting company in Albury, NSW, Australia, still have one or two in service. A PL-12 was used in the film Mad Max 3 - Beyond Thunderdome. This model has a cleaner frontal appearance than the early models which actually ran a radial engine.

To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Transavia PL-12 Airtruk plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
