Wing Derringer

Flying Models magazine's Wing Derringer

The Wing Derringer was originally designed by John Thorp and initially named the Thorp T-17. The design was acquired by George Wing who manufactured the plane, now known as the Derringer, through his company, Wing Aircraft Company. The Derringer was designed as a twin engine sport aircraft and featured several structural innovations as well as retractable tricycle landing gear.

The 60" span Derringer model was designed by noted model aircraft designer Jack Sheeks, powered by two glow engines in the .15 to .35 CID range. Construction is quite straightforward and the model would make an ideal "knockabout" sport scale aircraft and first-time platform for twin engines and retractable landing gear.

About the Plans Printing Service.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Wing Derringer plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or ID and send us a message with the desired wingspan an any other info you may find useful.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and water proof.

About the different media types:

Plain Paper: Common white paper, 80 grams per square meter.
Tracing paper: Common Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).


We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.

We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.


When I order something online I like to know where my stuff is so I strongly advise you to track your order. Even if you don't pay for the tracking option, for orders above 35 Euros or so I will offer you this option.
