These plans for the Patty Jo
hand-launch glider were scanned from my purchased copy of the March 1969 American aircraft Modeler magazine. The
4-view for this fine model was drawn by Mr. John Thornhill. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.
No article accompanied the plans, but the plans are heavily annotated with instructions, so anyone with a little
bit of experience should have no problem building it.

The AMA Plans Service offers a
full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They
will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because
my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing
plans also help to support the operation of the
Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1
advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this
plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.
