    Go to thread #381. First thing you do is go to the URL. That is the vector location of the 2 trotskiy planes. Then follow the instructions in the thread to download the files.

    First -

    To anyone having trouble figuring out how/where to download the airplanes, the link in #381 will take you to a place that will look like the screenshot attached - go to the links circled in red.

    Second -

    The .pdf files seem copy-protected - how is anyone enlarging the files? Anyone know of a way to edit them?

    Attached Files:

    It would be nice to be able to enlarge them. I would like to make them large enough to glue to foam and make R/C models.

    About Mr. Trotskiy's planes

    Hi fellows,

    I am quite new to the forum. This is actually my first post. However I have been modeling since I was 5 or 6 years old and back in the 50’s paper modeling was already a nice hobby. I have also followed this thread because I admire the artwork that Mr. Trotskiy very generously shares with all of us. I believe that his creativity is to be respected as much as the wishes that he expresses in his web site. He clearly resent anyone tampering with his masterpieces, and obviously someone had done that, forcing him to protect his rights.

    As far as enlarging, the simple way is to print sections (or parts of the plane) of the file showing enlarged in the screen and printing “current view” in a large paper, either 8 1/2x14 , or better yet if you have a larger printer that handles 11x17. Otherwise there is always Kinko’s services or Office Max that can print in large paper for you. You may need to print several sheets of paper (or cardboard) to have a full set to construct the plane, and it could be somehow expensive around $15 or $ 20 US dollars, considering at $2~3 dollars per each 11x17 cardboard printout.

    There is a new material called “Durobatic” foam.
    Check http://www.durobatics.com/index.htm web site for sizes, prices and thickness available. This material is as thin as cardboard but extremely light weight (lighter than balsa wood) but sturdy considering the thickness of approx. .025" , available in white or black colors and with the simple application of a thin coat of an acrylic sealer can be feed and printed with a regular ink jet printer. This is the material of choice to produce light good looking printouts that can be folded or formed into a 3d airframe or flying surfaces (wings & tails) to adapt for RC control using state of the art components from suppliers like “Plantraco” (check http://plantraco.com ) in Canada. Planes weighting only a few grams are within grasp for around $150.00 ready to flight. Wingspan in the 6” to 10” are now common. Scales of 1:48 to 1:72 are the current rage.
    A few guys in the http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/index.php forum under http://www.rcgroups.com/indoor-and-micro-models section are doing just that and many people had benefited from all the artwork available in the Card Modelers world, be it free or purchased.

    So, in short I really hope that Mr. Trotskiy will read some of these posts and return to the normal download routine of a plane a week. I only have 8 of his planes and was hopping for and accelerated release to reach for the German planes. But I will appreciate very much if anyone of you feels like sharing with a fellow modeler. I am wishing to complete Mr. Trotskiy collection of planes before my health prevent me from further modeling in the very small scales.

    My e-mail address is zx550agpz@msn.com if you can make some of the german planes available to me, I will thank you in advance.

    Thanks!

    I am trying to post a detailed answer but the post maybe to long and it is being rejected, this is a short one to test if there is any other problem with my posts.

    Thanks

    Non one is allowed to change the files however what you do with the prints after that is anyone's discretion.

    Does anyone know whats going on with Mr. Trotskiy? I've always wondered about him. Whats his back story? I've poked around his site with the bablefish translation but its just horrible. I think it would just be nice to know a little more about him personally and what drives him to design so many nice looking models.

    Personally I think he just has a programming error and lost the bottom row of planes and doesnt realize it.... But thats just a guess

    The only odd thing is that he hasn't updated his site in 2 weeks either though...

    what about sending him a e-mail?

    Did anyone ever try to contact him by e-mail or any other way?

    I think his site is Kaput!

    Many of the links on it are going 404 now.

    Perhaps he's no longer in the hobby.

    Kind of sad really.

    =(

    Personally I am hoping he just lost the bottom row of models though an HTML error. Once that rotation is over it will come back to the top. Unless he catches it sooner. At least thats my hope!
