About this Plan

Alexander Schleicher K 8B - Radio control scale sailplane model. 2.75m wingspan. Scale is 1/6.

Quote: - "Mary, see here the K8B of Svenson. The glider I built in 1974, still in good condition after more than 40 years [model photo]. After a lot of recovery work, I have the plan back OK. Today scanning to a pdf. It would be nice to see the K8B of Svenson on OUTER ZONE. The glider flies super good. He is also very easy to build. The second photo is my second K8B that I built in 2012 [more pics 006]. This is covered with Japanese paper. Kind regards, Julien"

* 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.
