About this Plan
Cierzo. Simple all-sheet towline glider. Wingspan 140cm.
Quote: "Today I send you another model of Modelhob. For my brother and for me it was the beginning of a series of gliders that culminated in a champion design. It is the 'Cierzo' (wind that blows in Spain through the Ebro river valley). This model with Jedelski profile taught us a lot about construction techniques and flight. We lost several of them and once it left in a thermal after throwing by hand.
There were versions of the initial that is the plane, and after 1980 it was manufactured with a smaller size."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsPlease find attached the 1973, 1976 and 1979 Modelhob catalogues entries for the glider Cierzo [more pics 003-005]. First appeared in 1973, it's listed as an easy to build high efficiency A1 glider with an original wingspan of 1400mm (55in) up to the 1979 catalogue, in which it appears in a reduced size with a 1200mm (47-1/4in) wingspan.

* 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.
