Built two of these back in the early 90s, both flew extremely well, easy to trim 50gram of rubber is plenty (now there,s a thought BMFA rubber!!) one of them lies to the north of Middle Wallop airfield, dt,d at 3 minutes but took so long coming down it flew out of sight and was lost. Other one lost at Merryfield. I may have another unfinished in the loft, will have to check

* 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.
