How To Read The Plan:

 
If this is your first model, the symbols and lines on the plan may be unfamiliar to you. This section will explain what the plan is and how to use it.

The plan is a full-size drawing of the model that shows the correct size, shape and relationship of all of the parts. In order to show all of the parts together, the plan is drawn using cutaway views, dashed lines and sections that allow you to "see through" some, or all of the parts.

  Cutaway views appear as if a part, or parts were removed. This is done to clearly show the parts immediately behind the cutaway part. The Side View on the plan shows the hull with the planking removed, or cut out.

    Dashed lines indicate a part, or a portion of a part that is underneath or inside of another part.

  Parts that have shapes not apparent in one view are shown by sections.

  The plan will be used in several ways. It will be helpful in identifying and positioning parts on other parts that are not built directly on the plan. Assemblies, such as the windshield, will be built on the plans using the drawing as a pattern to locate parts. The plans will also be useful in positioning components, such as the radio, before installation in the model.
