About this Plan
Veron Velox. Free flight pusher sport model. The Frog Velox kit came with mainly prefabricated wooden parts that made up the fuselage pod and boom - these are not detailed on the plan.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 09/07/2016: Added kit instructions, thanks to PeterKraus.
Quote: "I am also sending the instructions to go with the plan for the Veron Velox. You have the plan for this and it may be a bit off-putting that the kit has ready carved balsa block parts. However these should not be a problem to replicate and I think the instruction sheet makes this clear. It did come apart prior to scanning but I think the several scans together are quite clear. All the best and thanks again for your site, Cheers, Peter"
Update 29/07/2020: Replaced the instructions file with a clearer copy, thanks to MartinCox.
Quote: "VELOX BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS
This graceful 44 in Span Auxiliary Powered Pusher with its unique pod-and-boom structure gives an ultra-streamlined model with an 'out of the rut' popular appeal all its own!
Designed for diesel and glo-motors of .5 to .9 cc (.03 to .054 cu in), standard engines can be used with the specially designed 'Velox' pusher propeller (7 x 4) available from your dealer or from Model Aircraft (Bournemouth) Ltd, Norwood Place, Bournemouth at 3/3 each plus postage 6d. (Commonwealth Countries 1/-, Foreign Countries 1/6 postage ). Allbon Dart, Merlin, Bantam, ED Baby, ED .8 cc Pep, AM .049, Frog .049, Frog 80, Mills ,75 and similar capacity Foreign, Continental and American beam mount motors.
Though not recommended as a model for beginners to powered free-flight, the simple sequence of assembly is pictorially laid out on a separate diagrammatic sheet which, if followed carefully with the corresponding paragraphs in these instructions, will facilitate the building of a comparatively straight-forward model.
Simple tools are needed. Use a VERON balsa knife. modelling pins, a good grade of cement, side-cutting pliers, drills and brace (for mounting the engine, etc), use of a soldering iron (for the wheels). Clear shrinking dope with thinners and brushes as necessary. Coloured dope, preferably white. also tissue paste and greaseproof paper. Also garnet paper and red dope for trimming.
Separate all the die cut pieces and identify all the parts in the kit. Above all, READ THROUGH these and other instructions and to familiarize yourself with the sequence of assembly.
1. FUSELAGE BOOM: Join the two halves of the boom together liberally cementing along their edges. Secure with rubber bands whilst setting. Check that no warps are incurred. DO NOT sand smooth until AFTER joining to fuselage.
2. FUSELAGE HALVES AND BOOM: Mark round the circumference of the boom 1-3/4 in from one end - this is to mark the depth of its joint with the fuselage halves. Check that when two main fuselage sides are fitted together trapping the boom, there are no gaps in joints. If satisfied, cement up all jointing surfaces and secure whilst drying.
3. FUSELAGE FORMERS The two die-cut formers F.1 are laminated accurately together with F.4 cemented also correctly in place as in diagram 3(a). Measure 6-1/2 in from rear of fuselage to point where rear edge of laminated formers F.1 (not F.4) will be located, Check former for fit and if satisfied cement in place, double coating; the first coat being rubbed well into the wood grain and allowed to dry before applying a second coat and locating F.1s. Check for verticallity by TEMPORARY LOCATION ONLY of wing support blocks.
4. UNDERCARRIAGE Bend the 14 swg wire provides to shape as in side, top and front views on plan. Pencil in the completed outline of centre loop of wire..."

I am building a VELOX from the original plan as I built the kit in the 60's. I built the tail boom from rolled 1/16" sheet and the fuselage using 1/2" sheet and a lot of work with a balsa plane!

* 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.
