Great work as usual Rufus

I cant help but notice the scale outline differences between this plan and the Peerless plan of the same plane that you also posted recently. The difference that jumps out most is that this plan shows a curved turtle decking aft of the cockpit. The Peerless plan shows the turtle deck top edge forming a straight line. Period photos and all 3-views suggest peerless got it right...



Steve

PS.. thanks for continuing to make these plans available.

Hello Steve,

It is my understanding that on the real WW-1 aircraft there were so many modifications made as production went along as well as modifications made on the flight line that who knows what is "correct". Certainly not me.
