About this Plan

Gull II. Sports parasol model.

The original Gull II (oz122) was a FF rubber Comet kit, circa 1963. This here is a 250% enlarged version, for RC with .40 power. This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

Quote: "This model is a 2.5x version of a Comet model called the 'Gull II'. It was a great gas conversion with an .020. I used to build these in the 60's when I was a kid. It was a great flying model especially considering the fact I had no idea what I was doing. I came across an old set of plans and thought it would be neat to build a 40 size version. I can't guarantee anything because I have not built this model yet and it's the first time I've scaled up a model. I borrowed the nice drawing of the motor from a Dick Bradford drawing and also studied his drawings and designs carefully while doing this project. This man does nice work and I'm currently building a Rambler II from his drawings. Hence this is why I haven't built this airplane yet. I welcome any and all comments and suggestions. There are a lot of people out there with a lot more knowledge about design than I, and I would be happy to hear about anything you find wrong with this plan. Good luck and I hope the 40 size flys as good as my 1/2A did. Chuck G."

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

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
