Korda TLG - Nationals Towline Winner - Free flight towline glider model.
Quote: - "Korda's Tow-line glider. Drawn from first MAP plans book, published 1946-1947 by Bill Winter Books. 53in span x 35in length. Drawn by Terry Rose Aug 1999."
Quote: - "This has been another great year for Korda but the amazing thing is that his old stand-by, the cabin job, contributed nothing at all. He has been cleaning up with a sensational DeLong-powered Class-B gassie, and at the Nationals won a first in Class A control-line, and another first in towline glider. The towline, as will be seen from the plans, is an unusually attractive ship ...Korda uses 100 feet of eight-pound test nylon line which stretches ten feet during the tow. Good glider builders say that anything over 100 foot line may lose the ship! Whenthe model is directlu overhead, Korda gives a steady pullon the line, thius accelerating the ship to loop. As it loops off the line, it rolls into level flight..."

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.
