About this Plan

Welshman. Free flight towline glider.

Quote: "The Welshman is a tail-less glider of 72" wingspan and was designed by A. Lucas. The original was designed to compete against orthodox gliders in the competition arena and I dare say it was capable of giving them a good run for their money. That it held the British Record for tailless gliders with a flight of over 22 mins certainly demonstrates that it is no slouch once off of the line. Once again if you decide to build from the tracings please take care and double check before cutting anything." This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

It's got two right outer wings, a fault on the original Aeromodeller drawing.

* 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.
