About this Plan
Naurdycq (Nordic). Free flight glider model. Wingspan 230 cm.
Note this plan is dervived from the raw scan at AF site (see datafile) along with the linked MRA article pages from the RCB site, which show wing layout on sheet 2. This version here has been cleaned up, scaled, also had some paper distortion removed.

User commentsConstruction complexity is remarkable, it must have been a long winter for M. Fillon, or else there was a bet involved. The wings are straightforward if you don't count the baffling elliptic dihedral, but the fuselage is a fantastic interlocking puzzle, much accuracy required here. The end result should be a beautiful and efficient airframe.
Also remarkable is MRA's ability to squeeze an elephant herd into a refrigerator!

The tell-tale give-away of a herd of elephants in a refrigerator is the unmistakable smell of peanuts on their breath.

Gotta love those F-5 through F-8 formers too Miguel. Surely by 1973 Mr. Fillon had already perfected his own laser cutter with CAD interface. :-)

I did wonder where all those footprints in the butter came from every time I left it in the fridge.

Errata: please replace "an elephant herd into a refrigerator!" with "an elephant herd and two clowns into a refrigerator!".

See nota in the end of article : N23 is 3mm too short on the training edge.

* 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.
