Attached is a photo of my recently completed Windfreak from your plans [more pics 003]. Modified for electric power and dual elevator servos. It is an interesting build project and a great flying plane. Thermals well and has an amazing speed range. In hindsight I should have added spoilers; it just glides forever on landing. Thanks for providing the plans, I have built many planes from them and really appreciate all you do to make them available!

* 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.
