Beverage Bottle Challenge: Fat Albert C-130

DMorris Design's Beverage Bottle Challenge: Fat Albert C-130

This plane was my answer to a 2016 Summer Build Challenge to use beverage bottle(s) as a primary part of the structure. After a lot of thought, inspiration came in the aftermath of the loss of a Blue Angel pilot in a crash. The pilot's remains were carried by Fat Albert, the Blue Angel's support C-130.

I decided to use several 2-liter bottles for the fuselage, Dollar Tree Foam Board for the internal support and the rudder and elevator, and pink insulation board for the wings. To simplify things, I used a single electric motor in the nose, and put 4 pinwheels (made from cola can aluminum) on the wings that turn in the slightest breeze.I used Dick Sarpolus's C-130 plans for the shapes and scaled it down to 36" wingspan.

Terms of Service.
Please read the Plans Printing Service Terms of Use before placing an order.

What are you ordering:

You are ordering a print from the main PDF file in this listing, it´s exactly like taking this file in a thumb drive to a local print shop and ask them to make a print.

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.
In doubt please ask us for an opinion.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale this 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.

You will receive:

  • Laser Printed plan on good quality Bond paper or/and Tracing Paper and/or Polyester sheet of the PDF file from this listing, depending on what you have purchased.
  • Rolled sheets, up to 5 in the same cardboard tube.
  • Envelope, up to 5 sheets per envelope.
  • Articles and Instructions if they are available and if you order them.
  • Air Mail, Priority, Priority Insured or Normal mail, according to your choice.

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.

About the different media types:

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).

Pricing:

We charge by print length (914mm or 91,4cm or 36in. by the length of the print)
This means that a plan 120cm by 150cm will be charged two times 150cm because it will be printed in two tiles, a plan 91cm by 150cm will be charged one time its length or 150cm and a plan 91cm by 40cm will be charged 40cm.
The system will try to fit a plan in the 91,4cm of the printer width in order to reduce the costs or print length to the maximum. This is the same charging method used in any printshop.

Packaging:

We will use paper or waxed paper padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans, depending on your choice.

Shipping:

We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
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.
Orders are dispatched on the next or second business day after purchase.

Postage:

We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.

Mailing Methods:

Normal Mail: Normal Mail is non traceable, use at your own risk, no insurance, total loss if the carrier loses it.
Priority: Priority Mail is traceable on your local/national mail system, it is not insured.
Priority Insured: Priority Insured Mail is traceable on your local/national mail system and is insured.

Returns:

Please keep in mind that when you order a plan it will be printed specifically for you, just like when you go to a local print shop.
Before ordering please make sure that the plan will fit your needs, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If you still receive a plan you don´t like we can accept it back if it is in good conditions but we will not refund the postage from the initial order, you will have to pay the postage to return the plan to us and a 30% re-stock fee will be applied so please, in doubt, please ask us for an opinion.

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.
