About this Plan

Loffler L8 Wakefield Winner - Rubber contest model.

Quote: "World Wakefield Winner... Here is the correct, authorized and we might add, exclusive, set of plans for the top design in the rubber-powered field and a real East-West break-thru.

With a record 26 nations participating in the 24th Lord Wakefield International Cup contest, air-modeling's oldest and most famed trophy went to Joachim Loffler, 23-year old college student from Eberswalde, East Germany, following a fiercely contested fly-off against other '5- max' finalists from Sweden, Italy and Austria. Since this also marked the debut of the Deutsche Demokratic Republic (5th in team results) in international contest flying, their star team member's victory was as much as a surprise to most people as the success of Finland's Ellila in '49 and Australia's King in '54.

Joachim Loftier has been building Wakefields for the last 4 years and he set new National Records for this category in '61 and '62. A member of the Kranbau Eberswalde model club, L-8 is his first design to be detailed in a model magazine..."

Quote: "Hi Steve - Here is Joachim Loffler's 1963 Wakefield Winner from American Modeler magazine issue May/June 1964."

* 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.
