User commentsHi Steve and Mary, Here's a photo of my newly completed 'A' IHLG oz12593 [main pic, 003,004]. I didn't have any suitable springy wood for the fuselage, so I used the hollow tip section of a carbon fibre fishing rod. It had the additional advantage of being able to use solder for the noseweight looped back out of the carbon tube and secured with shrink tube. I also changed the leading edge from monofilament to 0.06mm Spiderwire which was very easy to glue on with white glue. The finger reinforcement was changed to a 20mm strip of 3x1mm carbon at the trailing edge and a touch of tailplane tilt added to encourage it to fly in right hand circles. Can't fly in our sports hall at the moment because of Covid restrictions, but it glides beautifully across the bedroom.
Best regards and stay healthy!

* 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.
