About this Plan
Jyge. Free flight glider model.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Note this plan needs cleanup. There is some mis-alignment around the paper folds, too. [Fixed now, see update below]
Update 29/3/2022: Replaced this plan with a much clearer version, redrawn in CAD, thanks to Gene.

The Jygé glider was published as a final article of a series by jean Guillemard on the construction of model gliders for beginners and as a full-size plan in the magazine "Le Modèle Réduit d'Avion", issue number 48 dated June 1942.

* 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.
