Plan Scaling Service
Due to numerous requests by our more experienced customer based builders who wish to build a bespoke sized version to suit their particular need, we are now offering a scaling service on all the Tony Nijhuis Designs plan range.
We have been aware for many years that builders may have their own preferred scale of model they wish to scratch build and have taken our paper plans to there local print shop and commissioned them to enlarge or reduce using photocopy machines. The result is usually a miss-match of paper sheets with overlapping errors to a scale that isn't quite right! At TND Ltd we are here to help you achieve you project more accurately!
Because all our models are designed using AutoCAD and we plot every plan that we sell to our customers, we have the ability within our drawing office to rescale any model in our range to any size the customer wishes and print a complete set of plans on our large format roll feed plotters. All you have to do is give us the wing span you want and we can do the rest.
Each request will result in 're-shuffle' of the drawing components to allow the re-scaled plan to fit on to an AO wide paper plot. The length of paper is not limited.
Customers should be aware that this is a pure scale up/down exercise which means the text describing the wood sizes etc and all other information stated on the plan will become null & void. The builder will have to, and be responsible for modifying the structure as and where appropriate, to suit the modified size and weight of the model they wish to build.
The builder therefore assumes all risk resulting from their request for re-scaling of our original plans.
Please also note that we can not make/manufacture any canopies, cowls or VAC sets to suit an individual request.
On the explicit understanding of the above NOTE, we will be please to discuss your specific request, and guide you towards a costs for the service.
Please phone or email your request though to us and we will advise on the 'Cost Code' to carry out the work. Please then enter a '1' in the Quantity box against the code we have advise, add this to your shopping cart and proceed to checkout. Please note that UK P&P is included. Please enquire for overseas orders and we will advise.
Below is just one example of a customer request to scale up our 72" Lancaster plan to FULL-SIZE....yes full-size.... but fortunately only the nose section! The drawing along the bottom shows just four fuselage formers spliced into section to demonstrate how we position the full-size parts ready for printing on our 1 meter wide plotter. It took 75 meters of paper to print all 14 fuselage formers!"
