About this Plan

Kirby Prefect. Free flight scale towline glider from KK.

Quote: "The Kirby Prefect is one of Britain's best known gliders and an ideal design for a flying scale model. Cut out all the sheet parts with a sharp razor blade (see plan) or a Keil Kraft modelling knife - and place them in the box lid to avoid loss or damage. Do not break the strip pieces apart - separate them with a razor blade. For rapid assembly, build the model in the following sequence..."


Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

Thanks a lot for let me download this model's nice plan. I think the curved lines to the center point of the fuselage's nose, in the front view of the model are not correct. In this view the side faces must be similar to the curved line of the nose, in the side view of the model.

Another oldie; a little glider, the Kirby Prefect [model photo & more pics 003, 004]. I found it in its box recently and my eldest brother, who was visiting, said he had flown one (not a model, a real one!) many years ago when he was in the R.A.F.

I see someone questioned the forward fuselage lines of the Keilkraft plan. They look about right to me but the place to check is - vintage gliders. This excellent site has all the info., you could want on early gliders.

* 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.
