Thanks a million Planeman. That's just what I have been looking for. I built one of these back in the 50's. I would love to build it again using a modern radio. Thanks again.

Don't know if this is what you were looking for.

Here is the Fairchild PT-19 by Chuck Hollinger from Aug. 1956 YM enlarged to its full 72 inch wingspan Mike. It just barely makes it under the 36" vertical dimension of the plan so it should fit on the standard 36 inch wide output printers. I suggest you try a blueprint service as an output source.

Thank you sir! Fortunately I have access to a plotter that can handle the size.

I am under the impression that a plotter requires a CAD file Mike. This is not a CAD file. Can your plotter print a non-CAD file?

It's an Adobe plotter that can print CAD, pdf, doc, xls just about anything.

Actually, plotters as we knew them, don't exhist: They're large format printers these days. I myself, have a "Real" plotter. It's an old pen plotter which will do a C-size drawing. It's a kick to see it work. It has eight pens and grabs a new pen for each color. It works on the X & Y axis or Vector files. The printers will do Raster files, which is what the PDF's are.

A few pages back pd-1 posted the February 1938 Flying Aces Fairchild 24. As was always the case, the plans spanned multiple pages and the plates were at different scales making it a nightmare to try to build from. I have re-assembled the plan into one sheet with everything full size and scaled correctly. I even supplied the missing left wing panel by flopping the right wing panel and doing some editing. I hope it helps some of you to build this model.

Thanks Planeman, sometimes my scanner changes sizes on it's own. Other times it's the idiot running it.

Anyone got the Mercury plan for the Galahad- low winger about 54".
Any other of the more unusual types would be good.
Low winger, flying wings, multi engined.
Like the Peter Fisher desgined Ionesphere push/pull twin flying wing for example.
