About this Plan

Veron Verosonic. Towline glider model. Plan also shows Jetex installation.

Quote: "Veron Verosonic. High performance sailplane. Building instructions.

First, study the plan and identify all the parts on the printed sheets of balsa. Familiarise yourself with these and all other instructions. This design, if carefully built, is quite capable of consistent contest durations of three to four minutes in still air from a standard FAI line length of 328 feet.

The only tools needed are small pliers, a few pinns, either steel backed razor blade or balsa knife, and fine sandpaper. The fuslage sides, wing and stabilizer panels and the fin are all built directly over the plan.

Wings: Lay the plan on the building board and cover with waxed tissue or greaseproof paper to protect from the cement. Select two even grade lengths of 3/8 x 1/8 for spars. Lay ove plan and mark in pencil the positions of all ribs. Taper spans on top edge to 1/4 x 1/8 at R11..."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Note: this plan needs to be used only with caution - there may be some misalignments and measurement errors, due to the way I stitched it together from 8x A4 scanned page sections. If anyone out there wants to grab this one and check through it, straighten it all out, that would be great... Steve. [Edit: this is fixed now]

Update 01/08/2019: Replaced this plan with a clearer scan, thanks to Joost. This is a single full size scan, so this has no stitching/alignment errors. Also added kit instructions and printwood.

Hi Mary /Steve, here is a photo of the Veron Verosonic for the plan page of the same [model photo and more pic 003]. I am restoring this one using the plan from Outerzone.

Here is a photo from my Veron Verosonic project [more pics 004]. It's me combining hobbies, photography and model airplanes. Used an old expired film, probably expired 10 years ago, and a cheap camera to make this photo. Aim was make a photo that looks like if I had done it in the early 70s, and it worked, it looks just like a print from those days. Did now what I did not do then, never seen this kit at the time and often did not make photos of what I did build. It's much fun to do it now like this.

I'm having a go at fixing the plan. Should be available shortly.

I do have a complete kit of this (by now) including the plan. Before you go through any trouble to try and recreate a better plan from that here, I could have that scanned? I never did since I don't know if any one builds this? No photos have been send in or requests for a better plan.

Hi I will get the plan scanned asap, I saw I have parts scans already so its worth while.
Joost - 21/07/2019
Here are a few photos to add to the plan page [more pics 005-007].
Joost - 22/07/2019
Hmm...it seems the parts scans are somewhat foreshortened, thereby rendering them useless. A pity for such a nostalgic plan!
Vic Arcudi - 06/09/2019
Vic, the scans are fine, and all the detail you need is here. The printwood has been scanned from both ends. You just need to put a little work in, yourself, and piece the two parts together. Also, you need to be more polite. The word 'useless' is not appropriate.

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.
