Rolling Stone - Contest glider to the International A/2 specification.
Quote: "OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS, a quite definite design pattern has evolved for an all-weather glider to the international A/2 specification to suit the variable British weather conditions. The basic design appears at first to be very simple and devoid of the elegance to be found among, for example, designs from Finland, Germany and the USA. We have already published several model designs which fall into this category, notably Al Wisher's Wishbone (oz3727). Additionally, John O'Donnell's designs have been in circulation. Rolling Stone was first revealed in the August 1963 edition of Northern Area News, and from that worthy publication we were able to reproduce its features in the current AEROMODELLER ANNUAL. Now we are able to offer full size plans for this very successful design and by success,we mean the following impressive table of 1964 contests, alone..."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
