Blackbird - Chuck glider.
Quote: - "The model does not require much nose ballast, and virtually all of it can be eliminated by melting some lead ballast and pouring it into a drilled hole which indicates the eye position ...top center portion of the wing is trimmed in bright red and yellow, approximately as indicated on the plans. When this has all been completed, you might even rub down the surface lightly and then wax it for that added luster. This may seem like a lot of trouble just for a phoney bird, but when you get a load of those gaping mouths and wide-eyed stares from other modellers, you'll know it was well worth it..."
Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
