About this Plan

Tomahawk - Free flight glider model. Class E canard towline design.

Quote: - "The canard configuration in the present case was chosen mainly to accomodate an unusual airfoil. As you will note from the drawing, the airfoil appears radically different from the types generally used on model aircraft. The airfoil is the LDC-2 a laminar flow section developed by the Low Speed Aerodynamics Research Asscociation (LSARA) in England several years ago..."

Note this is not a fullsize plan, this is a scan of the drawing as printed in the magazine. Formers are shown at 100%, the general layout is shown at 25%.

* 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.
