About this Plan

Comper Swift. Rubber scale model.

Quote: "Veron Tru-flite Comper Swift, which has a handy 18in span, is relatively simple to build, and in the right hands can fly consistently for around a minute. The construction is also robust enough for a novice to handle. The design dates from 1950, and was the work of the late Phil Smith, who designed most of the rest of the Veron range of kits, and was also a successful contest flyer."

Update 23/06/2015: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy (single page, not tiled) thanks to AugustaWest.

Update 18/08/2016: Added printwood pages into primary download file.

See the excellent and detailed build log by Mike Stuart complete with lots of great pics at: which shows the full build process starting with tools needed, cutting balsa, right through to covering, finishing and flight trimming.

Photos [main pic, 003] are grabbed from Mike's build log (see link above).

Supplementary file notes

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

    ScaleType: This (oz16) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
