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

Hi. Your website is amazing. I build a Keil Kraft Dolphin [more pics 005]. See the build log in this link from Chile: cach.cl/foroSMF Test flight www.youtube.com Thxs

Was home for a week so I got some flying done and took photos of my three latest projects built with Outerzone plans. This is Keil Kraft's Dolphin at finishing stage, static and flying. I covered the Dolphin in pink tissue, a tribute to breast cancer and aids awareness here in South Africa [more pics 006-013].

Between 1955 and about 1958, I built several Dolphins. My chief memory of them is that, unlike many small towline gliders of the period, they towed straight - no weaving, no veering off to one side or the other. Note to builders: for the wing mainspars, choose the toughest balsa you can find - or preferably, for the centre panel at least, use spruce!

I built a Dolphin glider back when I was 14 years old in 1955. Third flight off a 200 in button thread tow-line, it caught a thermal, (Of course, no D/T!) and I never saw it again.

* 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.
