About this Plan

Polliwog. Rubber competition model.

Note the original Willard Ballou Polliwog design dates back to the early 1940s. This here is a later redrawn plan, circa 1986, by Terry Rose.

Quote: "This drawing was made by Terry Rose from Willard Ballou's model which David Baker brought back from the USA in July 1986. Since making this drawing I have had a letter from Willard enclosing a rib template which is exactly the same as the section I drew from the model - the section is Chessman 25-100-10. He has also used NACA 6409 with equal success."

Note some sections of text on this scan are hard to read. If anyone can submit a clearer scan, that would be great [this is fixed now, see below]. Steve.

Update 29/10/2019: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to theshadow.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
