Dumas Skymaster PLANS NEEDED


I bought a Dumas Skymaster kit #211 off of ebay but the seller didn't tell me he did not have the plans. Anyone have or can copy a set for me? I am looking forward to putting some PKZ micro motors in it and flying it in the local gym. Anyone else do this with this kit?

Sorry, no plans here, but I remember seeing newsreel footage of C-54 Skymasters delivering food and supplies into Berlin during the airlift on KTLA-TV on our very first TV set in 1954.

Back then, having Douglas (Long Beach), Northrop (Hawthorne), North American (LAX) and Lockheed (Burbank) virtually within a few miles of where I grew up in Glendale, CA was a natural setting for causing me to become a lifelong airplane nut.

Make sure we see the fruits of your labor as the plane progresses!!

Also, may I suggest that you transfer the printwood patterns onto lighter balsa and/or selectively substitute Depron or Proformance foam in places where strength is not paramount. You may also want to consider editing the plans and using fewer ribs and stringers.

I think this is a Cessna Skymaster... the inline twin.

So, I should flush my memory?

The Cessna Skymaster is one noisy b+tch of a plane. We used to have one fly over occasionally. What a racket.

Oh, well...........................................

Sorry for the intrusion
