About this Plan

Swallow - Free flight rubber model. Coupe D'Hiver model. January 1977 Aeromodeller.

Quote: - "I must admit to being influenced by French designs - especially by the isze of some of their winning models. 'Swallow' is a large Coupe and incorporates a rear end comsisting of triple fin and dihedraled tailplane, which I believe has given very good stability when used on some Wakefield models..."

Update 10/03/2017: added article, thanks to RFJ.

Hi Mary/Steve - I was home on the weekend so Lindsay was able to photograph my latest projects scratch built from Oz plans. Poor weather prevented aerial photos of the Swallow last time out. Herewith some airborne shots including the prop falling to the ground [more pics 007-010].

* 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.
