37in Wing Span Glider (oz3303)
About this Plan
37in Wing Span Glider. Free flight model.
Quote: "Here is an early one... a '37in span Glider' scanned from The Model Aeroplane Constructor, Sept 1937. Originally published in Le Modele Reduit Davion... Note the inverted Clark Y stab section... Enjoy!"
Note the World Record Glider (oz11423) design by Robert File was first published in MAN Feb 1935. This here is a later clone/copy of that design. For more on the story, see Pit's supplement article_2 on the World Record Glider (oz11423) listing page.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsOriginally from MAN feb-1935, it was renamed VT-1 By Uberto Travagli of Aviominima (Roma) in magazine L'Aquilone 1938 and after war kitted as "Eoletto" and then a lightly modified (cabin) was commercialized by Movo under the name of M-27. In 1997 it was doublesized for RC and full size plan was enclosed in Modellismo magazine of Edimodel. Very unusual is the inverted lifting tailplane otherways it won't fly!

* 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.
