About this Plan

Mini Thermalist - Free flight glider.

Quote: "full size free flight plans in this issue ...a half size version of a classic Vintage glider. Mini Thermalist by Bill Dennis. You can see why Bill choose this 1948 giant glider design by R Minney to work on. It really has lovely looking lines. Bill said construction is very simple and it can be completed in a week of evenings with no special parts needed."

User comments

The Thermalist has a 144inch wing span if I remember rightly, not 120in.

Don't know. But certainly in this article, the text says half-size is 60in wingspan.

Here are a few photos of my model MINI THERMALIST [more pics 003-005]. I have scratch built it from plans of Outerzone ID 3484. Building is more complex compared with MEDICINE MAN but it flies a little better. More complex because wing is a two pieces one.

* 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.
