Wingspan is wrong size!

WS for A6M2 Md. 21 is 12m (39.37 ft) and in 1/16 or .75in/ft scale model WS must be 29.53 in. and not 27 in. Note that many plans in other scales by other designers of this aircraft subtype are also i incorrect.

Listed as 27" in Catalogue

This observation with respect to wingspan and scale has had me thinking. I too come to the same conclusions and yet the span is listed as 27" in the FSI plan catalogue. The plan references:


1: Zero Fighter - Robert C. Mikesh

2: A6M Zero in Action, Aircraft No 59 Squadron

3: Zero Fighter - Martin Caidin

4: Japanese A/C of the Pacific War - Rene J Francillon


áIt is possible that Bill Galloway made a mistake. I'd be interested if anyone could shed some light on this.
