About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. 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 Lockheed Electra or any other PDF 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.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or the following ID (ID:82455) and send us a message with the desired wingspan and any other info you may find useful.

  • Articles and Instructions if we have them for the given plan.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ and Canon printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and waterproof.

Bond Paper: White Bond paper, 80 grams per square meter.
Bond Tracing paper: Bond Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester film: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).


We will use brown padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans.

CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.

Lockheed Electra 10E-Civil_SCALE_1 each built July 1936 at Lockheed Aircraft Co to Amelia Mary Earhart's Specifications for Circumnavigation. Rekit on 26/05/2017 10:48
Funded by Purdue, the Lockheed Electra 10 was a Civil Aircraft, the Lockheed Electra 10E was special built on July 1936 at Lockheed Aircraft Co to Amelia Mary Earhart's Specifications. She was going to be the 1st person, and the 1st woman, to Circumnavigate the globe as close to the Equator as possible. A 29,000 mile trip. Her Fire Engine Red, Lockheed Vega, a single engine would not make the trip. The Lockheed Electra 10 was brand new and just started production as a Civil Passenger Aircraft, the "E" was for Earhart. Her last stop was a ridiculous end-point of hitting an uninhabited island, about 6500 ft in length and 1600 ft wide, about 16 ft above Sea Level. That's like trying to find a pop can in lake Michigan, won't happen. The Pacific Ocean is the largest body of water to try and cross. That Island, if you can call it that, was about 7,000 miles from California. The Navy had a Ship standing by at the Island to guide her in. It was bad weather and very overcast. She started calling at about 7000 ft, things got a little more frantic at 1000 ft. And it was the worst time find out that Pilots run on GMT and Navy runs on a Navy time, Also their Radio Frequencies would not talk to each other. The ship could hear her fine but she could not hear them. The book written is fascinating, about how the first ships and planes found their way off this rock.

Anyway most of that is from recollection from a book I read, but the Lockheed Electra 10, like the Lockheed Vega before it were passenger aircraft, not Bombers. This particular subject has always been a very special interest of mine so I thought I would take the 3 Views and the 20in plan and see if I can make something out of them.
