Folland Midge plan

Aeromodeller's Folland Midge plan

The Folland Midge was a small, swept-wing British subsonic light fighter aircraft originally developed as a concept demonstrator for the successful Folland Gnat. The Midge had a number of advanced features, such as hydraulically powered "flaperons", main landing gear that could be used as airbrakes, and a one-piece canopy that hinged over an inner armoured windscreen. Despite the low-powered engine, the little jet could break Mach 1 in a dive and was very agile. Original film footage of the Midge can be seen in the 1956 British science fiction film "Satellite in the Sky". The Midge portrays a fictional jet fighter used to test an experimental rocket fuel.(Wikipedia)

The plan includes an article by the designer which appeared with the plan in Aeromodeller

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 Folland Midge plan 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.
