Direct submission to Outerzone.
Note the World Record Glider (oz11423) design by Robert File was first published in MAN Feb 1935. This here is a later clone/copy of that design. For more on the story, see Pit's supplement article_2 on the World Record Glider (oz11423) listing page.
Update 09/08/2019: Added model pic from 1945 MOVO Catalogue, thanks to Pit.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsIt seems all the callouts on the drawing should reference sizes somewhere.. Based on the other related drawings for this guider, I know it's 1/16 wood and can make educated guesses. But, definitely making it a challenge for me.. Example, reference callout #11, what's the dimensions?
I'm actually redrawing the whole plan and would love to reference some real dimensions. Once completed, will build and share with everyone here if they would like...

* 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.
