Reference Drawing and Materials
(Carbon Dragon Drawings and Builders Manual)
1/2 Scale ... 1/4 Full Size
Jim Maupin expressed hope that designers would take this design to the next level.
Modern composite materials, especially carbon, now make this dream possible.
These 23 drawings were scanned from full size plans in PDF format.
The PDF files were converted to JPEG using PaintShop Pro.
The full size JPEG digitized drawings were 3500x1700 pixels.
The drawings below have been reduced in size to 2000x1000 pixels.
That is roughly one-half scale which results in a drawing that is one-quarter in size.
Go to websites such as ebay or Homesail to find full size plans for sale.If you buy a set, it is tradition to send $100 to the Maupins.
