About this Plan

Glider - Free flight towline glider. Designed by Alan Barrister, published in January 1948 FM and simply called '1948 Glider'.

Quote: "High efficiency is really the byword of this unique ship, for its high aspect ratio wing and low drag fuselage is a combination that is mighty hard to beat. No doubt your many hours of soaring pleasure will conclusively prove this point to you, for certainly my words alone could not approach a true justification of the ability of the ship..."

* 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.
