About this Plan

Forwarder. Unorthodox towline glider model.

Quote: "Aeromodeller of September 1952. First up is the Forwarder. A glider designed either for open or A2 contests. Nothing unusual in that you say but how about sweptback wings mounted low on the fuselage? Not many of them around but the Forwarder is the one. The designer, W. Tinker, wanted to get out of the rut, which he most certainly did, and the design had the added bonus of excellent towline characteristics. I have never had this verified and never seen one on the field so here is your chance to make history, if you are so inclined."

* 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.
