About this Plan

Jersey Albatross. Towline glider model.

Quote: "THE Jersey Albatross is the result of three previous attempts at large glider construction and flying. The fuselage is a solid pod-and-boom construction and features a detachable landing skid. The wing is a monospar, gull-wing design having sufficient dihedral and yet retaining scale appearance. Outer wing panels taper. The zigzag wing bracing and aileron construction are false and were built to further the scale appearance of the model. In flight it resembles a ship combining features of the Baby and Super Albatross soaring gliders..."

* 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.
