Default Scale Down

I would like to scale down a 35% plan to 28%. My local copy shop can reduce these for me. What if any problems am I going to have doing this? Thanks Don.

Default RE: Scale Down

Selecting the wood thickness. If you stick with the same wood size it would come out heavy but going to the next lower size might be too weak so try using lightening holes.

My fear in the rescaling operation has been to first locate a source of parts.

You need a different cowling, canopy, landing gear, etc. and then you need to relocate items within the A/C construction to fit such.
