Some Finished Models

line

You may choose a model plan set from the list on the left. They are FREE to download any of them that you wish.

     The links on the left, will lead you to more detailed information on each of the model aircraft displayed. The plans are of aircraft as featured in aviation magazines from the period of 1933 to 1937. The plans include instructions so that all the models can be flown using rubber power, if desired (except the Boeing 247...it is a static model, although at least one builder has flown it by redesigning it to accept electric motors).
      The plans are quite complete. They include hints and instructions on how to work with balsa, glues and tissue to build a light, flying model. It is always easier, however, if the builder is already familiar with stick and tissue model building, including the ability to transfer the full size drawings to balsa sheets through the use of a copier or carbon paper if one doesn't wish to cut up the plans.
     The builder is assumed to have, or will acquire, the proper tools, knowledge and skills necessary to build balsa models. Some of the models also require carving of balsa blocks for a few of the parts. Depending on the model, the wingspans range from about 14 to 30 inches, but can be scaled up or down as you wish using your computer scanner, a copier or a local print shop.

Size and other details of the finished models are shown on the information page accessed by clicking on the desired photo of the model you are interested in at the left of the screen.
