About this Plan

Baby - Beginner's towline glider model. Wingspan 1200mm.

Quote: - "Hi Mary and Steve, Here is the Spanish version of the 1934 Helmut Kirschke FF glider Baby (oz7417) which was used as a basic glider in the Spanish aeromodelling schools founded in the early forties.
Apart from the plan, I'm sending too a translation of the materials list into English, a copy of the original German advertisement from the Segelflieger magazine dated May 1934 [morepics 003] and an interesting 1947 picture of the workshop from the Aeromodelling School of the city of Soria, with a 'Baby' hanging from the ceiling [morepics 004]. Best regards, Alcalaino"

Note this version of the Baby plan shows fuselage layout at full length - the previous version was shortened, presumably to fit within a certain print size.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

* 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.
