User commentsHello, herewith a (rather poor, I'm afraid) picture of the Aile Volante Oflag IVD [more pics 003] and a document telling some of the history behind it as told by Jean Simon [suppl. file]. It was designed and first built during WW2 by French prisoners in a German camp for officers. Also, it is known in vintage French modelling circles by the complete name "Aile Volante Oflag IVD" (Aile Volante merely means Flying Wing).

* 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.
