About this Plan

Scan from DBHL, cleanup by theshadow.

ref DBHL-5438.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 18/7/2022: Added article, thanks to Pit.

Quote (google-translated from the Spanish): "A performance model, with conventional lines, but with a unique flight. Atlantic, by Flap.

Ideal for those who want to get started in the construction of performance models and also suitable for all those who want to have a beautiful and flying model with little work, this is the one whose plans begin in this issue.

Instruction: Fuselage: Whoever has built the 'Cadet' model published in previous issues, will not have any difficulty in its construction, which is almost identical, and only differs from the addition of the cabin. It begins as always by assembling the two sides directly on the plan..."

Update 3/10/2023: Added further (later) articles, thanks to Gerardo Gomez.

Quite difficult to solve this mistery. The Argentinian magazine “El Grafico” of football and general sport contained inside a regular column on aeromodelling called “Aeromodelismo” wrote by “Flap” the author’s nickname. This plan was published on nr 1120 of 27 dec 1940. Incidentally (or not) the model was named Atlantic, El Grafico publisher company was called “Atlantida sa” as for the Casa Atlantida kit model company regularly advertised in this magazine and this model appears to be kitted in a Casa Atlantida advertising of 1942; all in Buenos Aires.

Outstanding. Have added credits and date now, many thanks.

I have the privilege of sending this document, in order to provide more information about the “Atlantic” model aircraft and reveal the mystery of its designer “Roberto Desirello” known by the pseudonym “Flap”. Attached copy of an interview conducted by the magazine “El Aeromodelista”. I also attach a 2002 publication from the magazine “El Aeromodelista” with a description of the “Atlantic” airplane and a better prepared plan. Finally, I take this opportunity to congratulate you for the excellent work done in “Outerzone”, such a good collection of plans, and the noble gesture of sharing.

* 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.
