About this Plan
Victrace. Rubber Wakefield competition model. Wingspan 122 cm.
Quote: "Hi Steve, Firstly, many thanks for Outerzone and all your efforts to make it what it is! After all the many plans I have downloaded, I thought I should also contribute. First plan is the 1939 'Victrace' Wakefield by Ted Evans, later of Jaguar (oz584) Wakefield fame. That's a young me with the model I built in the 80's. I still have the model and the rest are recent pictures. I originally acquired the plans from Ted Evans son, Nick. A Mr Wilkinson drew plans of all the surviving Evans models many years ago. Cheers, Nigel,"

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

User commentsI found this interesting as it was not one of my father's planes I knew anything about (my brother Nick obviously would know about it). It is so nice to see people are still building them after all these years - I gather that in their day they were quite high tech! I must ask Nick about it when I next talk to him. Victrace - what an odd name. The Vansteed was an anagram of his name created by my mum, Betty.

Mary, Here are some pictures of a half-sized Victrace Wakefield built from oz12256 [pics 008-013]. The model is 22" span and flew well on an 8" Czech plastic prop. It flew even better with an 8" carved prop, so well that it drifted into a cotton field never to be found. Thanks again for all you folks do to keep these plans available!

* 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.
