About this Plan

Snark. Free flight gider.

Quote: "The Snark is a 63in span glider to the A2 specification by Dick Twomey who was a well known designer and flier of gliders at that time. The design had impeccable credentials then and is still thought well of in today's SAM crowd. The swept back, plug in wingtips and the curvaceous fuselage certainly make it easy to spot out on the field. As always if you do decide to build from my plans take care and ensure you measure well before cutting." This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Wing ribs R3 R4 R5 are not drawn to scale on the plan sheet correct length is shown on the top view of the wing tip panels . Former F5 is shown as 2.375 wide correct to 2.125 wide. I have a Snark ready for covering

* 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.
