Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 21/6/2022: Added article, thanks to Aeronorm.

Quote: "ALTHOUGH this machine has not put up any spectacular performances in competitions, it has shown itself to be a consistent performer under the severe type of weather which is encountered in the north. It is simple in design and easy to construct. Its performance is sufficiently good to have registered several fly-aways under difficult weather. It can be recommended to those who require a good all-weather machine.

The Fuselage: The two sides are built up in the usual way by constructing them on top of one another on the plan, to ensure absolute similarity. All longerons, struts and spacers are of 1/8. square hard balsa.

When the sides are thoroughly dry they may be removed from the plan and built up with horizontal spacers, starting in the centre at the wing-mount positions and working outwards.

The underside is planked to give a 'V' bottom from the nose to the tow hook position. The tail portion is filled in at the top and bottom from station F10 to the tailpost, with 1/16 sheet balsa to provide platforms for the attachment of the tailplane and underfin. The latter consists of sheet balsa, 1/16 thick, cut to shape and cemented to the underside of the fuselage.

The model is provided with a simple, but effective, auto-rudder control, consisting of a hinged wire lever working between the members of the twin towing hook and coupled to the rudder cross bar by a 22 swg piano wire coupling rod. Bias is given to the rudder by a rubber band stretched from the leading edge of the fin to the other horn of rudder bar, in the popular fashion..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
