Convair XF-92 for Jetex. .049 or 400 electric will work too.

A-20


does anyone have plans for the P-61 and A-20 Havoc. Like 3-4ft wingspan range, or any sterling kit plans (B-17)

Planeman posted a couple of B17 plans early on in this thread- do a search.
He also has a Havoc/Boston plan.If you mail him [email protected] and ask nicely I'm sure he'll send it you. If not I can when I get home tonight.

It's intended for rubber but looks easy enough to adapt.

While not a Sterling kit, this is one that Keith Laumer did that even includes his own electric retract system....a little heavy by today's standards.

Hey someone else mentioned it...anybody got plans for the Swee' Pea? I've been eyeing that one for a while, and a friend of mine would like the plans for it, too.

Way back in post #34 'Planeman' very kindly posted a write up of his explaining in great detail how to restore plans and then to scale them using Photoshop.

I printed out his document and after carefully reading through, I gave it a try and I was very pleased with the result. The effort needed is not that hard and provided you follow all the instructions given, anyone can achieve good results.

Thanks to him there will be many more plans saved and restored I am sure.

Thank you for taking the time to write this up and passing on this very useful information to us Rufas, you have made the seemingly difficult very easy.

Well, it's not as large as you were looking for, but maybe you can use this as a place to start. I believe that the BD-7 was an early export version of the A-20. I thought I had another plan around somewhere, but I can't put my finger on it.

Martin B-26 Marauder


If anyone is interested, here is a plan for the B-26 Marauder. I don't know the wingspan exactly, but it's in the 30" range. The plan is for dual rubber power, free flight control, but could probably be converted to electric RC by someone who knows what they are doing.

--Rubber Rookie

I have decided to remove this plan as it may still be copyrighted. Until I can find out, I thought it best to remove.

Found it! Here is a control line version of the A-20G Havoc. If I did my scaling correctly, I think the wing span is approximately 54", but YMMV.
