About this Plan

Flying Minutes - Wakefield competition rubber model.

Quote from 1947 Halfax catalog [see rcl1539] : - "A model with a famous history, the 48in span 'Flying Minutes' has become one of the world's best known aircraft. Apart from securing two places in the 192=39 Wakefield Trophy team to visit America and holding the British record with a flight of over 33 minutes, it has a wonderful record of successes in contest all over Britain. Of its performance therefore, there is little more to be said. "

Quote: "Hello Mary, I am more than happy to share the Plans with Outerzone ...I have been searching for some time for the full size plans for the above vintage aeroplane, which I am currently restoring ...this is an old Model, built by my Grandfather back in 1946, but now in need of much repair after 70 years of storage."

Note this scan was sourced [before clean-up] through the David Baker Heritage Library at who are doing a sterling job of archiving paper plans for posterity.

Direct submission to Outerzone.


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
