You could always get your outlines from a set of model plans, and draw from there.

Feihu,
there is a good 3 view by Paul Matt in the book Paul Matt Scale Airplane Drawings. I bought my copy at the AMA museum.
There is also a Zirolli park flyer size plan from Model Airplane News.

feihu -

Have been searching frantically for a beautiful set of 3-views that I put on CDR but cant at present put my hands on them. Will keep searching. In the meantime this set of .gif plans may help http://members.fortunecity.co.uk/slmohr/rcplan3.htm . Also, check out the followiing URL. Lotsa Champs here to peruse.

Hope this helps

I believe the C-3 was nicknamed the "Airknocker" (or "Flying Bathtub" )
I designed and built a model 85 once, by scaling up a Guillows kit 2 times. The 85 is very similar to the 7AC. Covering the fuselage to tail transition was a challenge though....

A bit off topic but; Rich nice to see you on the forum. I have built some of your designs, most recently the S 400 L-19/O-1. A buddy of mine built your OV-10 giant scale.
