Quote: "G'Evenin' Mary & Steve! Here is the glider Mistral from SMB, sold by SMB-Technik, later at Alexander Engel KG http://engel-modellbau.eu/ They worked together on several models. Span 2.64m, longitude 1.38, weight 1500-1700g, rudder, elevator and spoilers recommended. If anybody had so much money for so many functions in 1960 ;-) Georg Friedrich was said to be the designer, he often did vortex lobes in these times on his a li'l bit sophisticated gliders. Also the instruction booklet is written in his language (German), so it might be him... Patrick"

User commentsHello, The Mistral model was actually designed by my father Georg Friedrich in the early 1960s and published as a plan in the FMT. The model was then brought onto the market as a construction kit by the Engel company. For the time, it was a model that was way ahead of its time and very modern. It would certainly appeal to many model builders today. Kind regards to everyone,

* 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.
