Quote: "Hi Steve/Mary, here is the plan from a Graupner FF model Jolly. Don't know more about the modell but I build it in the 70s. regards,"

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 24/05/2016: Added instructions for Graupner Pylon engine mount for Filou/Jolly/Dandy gliders.

Quote: "Found this engine pylon for 3 German Graupner gliders. Some one out there might want to replicate this original for his glider. It's for the cox 0,49 baby bee engine. The printed plywood is 1,5 mm, the printed balsa 4 mm, the aluminium plate 1 mm."

Update 5/5/2022: Added Jolly kit instructions sheet, thanks to Martin Huebner.

Quote: "Hello Outerzone, today I send you the instructions and material list of the Graupner Jolly Ident-No. 4215 Sheet 3 published in 1965. The language is German and English. Greetings from Germany,"

Quote: "Preface: JOLLY is an A/1 class tow launch glider. It offers fine performance and is simple to build, thanks to the profusely pre-fabricated parts contained in the kit. Because of its small dimensions it is very easy to handle and transport.

He who prefers flying Jolyy as a powered glider instead of using the tow launch method can order a power-egg engine mount, indent No. 111. The pylon engine mount is held in position by the main plane elastics and can be quickly and easily mounted and removed between flights.

Building instructions: A straight, plane of soft wood is used as a building jig for the assembly of fuselage, wing, stab and fin. The plan (sheets 1 and 2) are drawn fullsize, thus permitting assembly of the componets right over the drawings. Pin the plans to the board and protect them by a sheet of transparent paper.

Assembly of the model should follow the sequence as the numbering of its parts. All parts of the kit, excepting those of 13/32 thickness, have been die-cut. The printed 13/32 balsa parts should be carefully cut out with a scroll saw (outside of printed contours). Carefully remove the die-cut parts, using either a razor blade or a balsa knife (such as indent No. 12 or 13, respectively). Do not force out any of these parts, otherwise rough edges may result...."

* 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.
