Hi guys, l just finished making the 1946 glider from your plans [pics 003-005]. Having to wait till lockdown finished - well pleased with result. My third plane from you guys. Many thanks,

Hi Mary and co - l flew BILLY BOY today for first time, had to make up own bungee but altogether well pleased. l must say using a bungee you get exercise more than electrified gliders. Many thanks for the plans please keep on going. Planning to build Southern Belle next, many thanks.

Just finished a 2.2 meter version of Billy Boy [more pics 006, 007]. At least another 3 weeks in lockdown in Victoria, Australia. Hoping it won?t go on for much longer. Once again may thanks for your work, kind regards,

my 2.2 meter wingspan Billy now gets regular flight times from a 100 bungee line is 5 mins in early morning still air, it literally hangs in the air and flies sooo slow, just love 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.
