Great cartoon and as good a reason as any for wanting to build a Bolo.

There is a fairly simple three view here

http://www.aviastar.org/air/usa/douglas_bolo.php

It doesn't have cross sections. It looks fairly simple to design and build, but I say that about all of the planes I look at. (It's easy to put them together in my head, not as easy to make all of the sticks line up!) Would you be building a realistic Bolo, or go for the Cartoonish version? (I could picture that one with bugs and the gremlin sitting in the cockpit)

Good Luck.

Has anyone got the plans for the Graupner Piper Tri-Pacer? I remember drooling over this kit in the local model shop in the early 1960's. I believe this model also featured flashing navigation lights!

The model was around 45" span and used a small i.c. motor but I reckon it could very easily be 'electrified' these days with LED's for the nav lights

Regards

You could start out with a pair of DC-3 wings, since that is the wing they used on the real Bolo.

Yeah, TBolt...you're right. The B-18 was a mid-gap congressional attempt at cutting costs and building a bomber between wars with bits n' pieces they already had available.

Worked great for the Little Rascals...

I don't know about the cartoony version...I never thought about that one. The Warner Bros. Version looks like a big foamy...now doesn't it

I have that 3 view already...thanks.

Anyone else?

chambermaid plan

I thought I would give back to this thread a little....I will start with this classic: the chambermaid by Bill Henn....a superb rubber scale model....she would make an awesome RC floater.
The Dimescale plan is my own...it was published in the NFFS newsletter.

A Plan for this was posted earlier, while it is a beautiful revamp, it does not open full sized.

I included it in this posting and the original from 1942 Air Trails

pd1, thanks for the 1940 Waco UQC-6 and Grumman G44 Widgeon plans!

Gene, can you help us land-liners out with smaller PDF's so we can download these nice modeling projects? Thank you in advance!

Soft landings,

Hi All, sorry for the delay...took me a bit to figure the file posting mechanism...you will find the plan posted above. Here are some photos of my dimer Cmaid. She is a great flyer on rubber (can do 2 minutes fairly consistently).

Joe, I am assuming that this is what you are asking for. PD1 is posting his files at 72 dpi in an effort to reduce the files to under 3 megs. This low resolution makes it difficult to achieve a respectable hi resolution monochrome file. I cannot do better without redrawing in CAD. Sorry.
