About this Plan

Tufurwun - All balsa type glider. Catapult, towline or power with an .049 engine. This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.

Quote: - "We were happy when Flying Models asked us to produce a catapult glider to help stir up interest in this much neglected model type. Rather than rake over old coals, or recap the designs of yore, we decided to start from scratch and work up a ship to modern standards ...we decided to use solid balsa construction throughout, as this results in a safer catapult model since hardwood would produce a heavy ship..."

* 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.
