About this Plan

Weetabix Wonderplane. Simple rubber sport model.

This was a free offer with Weetabix breakfast cereal in 1957. Sport model, loosely based on the Auster AOP.

Quote: "Send off now for your Weetabix Wonderplane construction kit - it's super! A real flying model, elastically powered, with metal propellor and a mainplane of true aerofoil shape - designed by aeronautical experts. Wing span 21 inches. Get your Weetabix Wonderplane now."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 10/08/2018: Rescaled this one to correct fullsize at 21 in wingspan.

What a neat little model (Weetabix Wonderplane) - thanks for posting this one. Bulkheads can be developed from the side and top view, but it would be nice if printwood scans were included, as there is no tailplane pattern on the plan. One could use the Veron Auster AOP 9 [oz 759] plan to approximate what is missing...

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
