Floating Kidney (oz7727)
About this Plan
Floating Kidney - All-wing glider model.
Quote: "Herewith a very old Aeromodeller plan 'Floating Kidney', might go well with a Ducted Fan if enlarged. I apologise for its poor quality, it is over 50 years old. If you can make anything of it, its rarity value would make it worth the effort."
Note this plan could use a good clean-up.
Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote:- "Hi Steve and Mary, This one was a struggle to recreate in CAD. You will notice that the spars do not agree with the original drawing. I added a required split line to all but F so that the model can be assembled. You will notice that there are very few straight edges. the model will require careful sanding to achieve all the required chamfers. Gene Rock"

User commentsCongratulations on the clean up of the Floating Kidney plan. I did not realise how doggy my original was until I saw the rework. Have downloaded it and now considering upsizing it with a ducted fan to push it along.

* 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.
