Ghana - Radio control slope soarer.
Quote: - "DESIGNED for single channel operation but easily adaptable for multi, reed or proportional. A complete set of materials for this model is available from Complete-A-Pac, of Earlston - see advertisement for details...
Not, perhaps, a model for the absolute beginner, Ghana is a high-speed soarer designed for the really strong winds experienced up in the North-east of England. If you have had trouble keeping that lightly loaded model from disappearing backwards over the ridge - only to be found later as a heap of wreckage on the other side - then it's time to build yourself a Ghana.
Fuselage: Pin the 3/16in sheet balsa fuselage sides cut to the thick outlines onto the plan, cementing the two parts of each side together as indicated. Next build up the crash-resistant nose section. With the 1/4in ply keel piece, F5 as a basis, slot F9 and F10 into position..."

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.
