Burka II (oz8202)
About this Plan
Burka II. Towline glider model. Wingspan 82 cm.
"Plan of BURKA II, a good elemental glider, was designed by enthusiast modeler who mediated the decade of the sixties founding a company called BURKA. It was sold in several ways, completely finished, in the form of a kit and in flat form, the kit included a small rubber sandow 'Pirelli' flat and its cable. I used to fly in thermal and on slopes with excellent flight characteristics. Easy and cheap we have done a little bigger (1/2 more and assisted by radio) with equal 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.
