About this Plan

Lil Nordnick - Simple free flight towline glider model with all-sheet design.

Quote: - "This article tells how to build a simple glider from a few sheets of balsa wood and cement ...use of sheet balsa throughout for ruggedness and speed of construction had a beneficial effect upon flight for the severe ubdercamber of the wing resulted in a very slow yet extremely high lift wing. The addition of the tabs to the outer wing trailing edges increases lift by acting as flaps..."

* 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.
