All-Wing Wonder - Control line speed model for .049 engine, drawn by Paul Del Gatto, 8in wingspan, from Air Trail Magazine July 1953.
Quote: "HALF-A DELTA SPEEDSTER
All-Wing Wonder. For the new small speed contests Paul Del(ta) Gatto offers a quickly constructed 'futuristic' craft. Now that the Half A speed event is a recognized one, the classification promises to be a hotbed of activity this season. This delta wing model represents less than twelve construction hours. If the model is built light and care is exercised in the construction and finish, your speed with an Atwood .049 should be in the 85 mph range.
At first glance the model's compact size and unusual wing structure may give the false impression that it is tricky to build. That just isn't so as you will see when you get under way with razor blade and sandpaper."

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
