About this Plan

Viper. Towline glider model.

Quote: "The Viper Flying Wing, by JT Holmes.

You don't have to be an expert tobiuld or adjust this flying wing. If built according to the instructions and properly adjusted you may be sure to place at your next contest. The drawings are one hald size, except the wing rib. It will only require a ruler and protractor to make them full size.

After a full size plan is drawn up, rub soap on it in order to keep the frame from sticking to the paper. Cut out one rib..."

Quote:- "Hi Everyone - These are scans directly from my issue of AIR WORLD JULY 1945 of the VIPER flying wing towline glider... The designer is J.T. Holmes. Enjoy,"

* 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.
