This is an Air Trails plan from 1953
This is a beautiful little .049 powered Free Flight plan that could easily be converted to RC and electric power.... She sure looks scale to me, right down to the oil cooler.
45" wing span and 30" length.... Baby Mac .049 shown for power.
This is a high resolution TIFF file containing 200 x 200 dots per inch.
The file will print a plan 24" x 40".
Storch 93" ws
These are 4 high resolution TIFF files containing 200 x 200 dots per inch.
3 files will print plans 36" x 70", the fuselage scale information file will print a sheet 36" x 41".
Highly scaled Fiseler Fi 156C-1 "STORCH" plans.
93" wing span, .90 powered.
See this plane fly on Youtube. Simply AWESOME!
Storch 140" ws
HUGE 1/4 scale Fiseler Fi 156C-1 "STORCH" plans.
NOTE: This plan is in German and the measurements are in metrics. To convert metric to U S standard use this excellent link:
Balsa is Balsa in German, so the plan pretty easy to figure out. I have already converted the 3562 mm spannweite to 140" wingspan! WOW. That is one huge wing span! The length is 97 inches. Wing area is 2,520 sq. inches! Geeeeesh. ....... That is a one heck of allot of wing area. 2 sheets. Now the plans say that it uses a Kritz Bully engine. hehe. Only the Germans would call their engine a Kritz Bully!,,, FYI: I was informed that Kritz Bully is the mans real name who made the engine. I bet kids did not pick on him in high school.
This plan is a copy of a copy and is NOT my best looking plan.
These are high resolution TIFF files containing 200 x 200 dots per inch.
The wing file will produce a plan 36" x 116", the fuselage file will print 36" x 120".
Originally, there where 4 sheets.
Dear Uncle Willie:
I just received the files I purchased a short time ago. My father always said "You get what you pay for.". It is easy to find on the Internet and Ebay in particular similar but lesser quality plans for 6 to 8 times the price you charge. The quality of your product is outstanding and the price is incredible. This is obviously a labor of love. Your web site is one of the best I've seen. I want to wish you great success in all your charitable ventures. You have earned my respect and admiration. I would like to close with a couple of my life observations that I think fit with the flavor of your website.
You know you're getting old when....More than half of the programing on the History channel happened in your lifetime.
You know you've made poor career choices when your children are retiring and your not.
Let me add one too.
Insanity is inherited. You inherit it from your children.
"HUGE" 117" wing span. 75" length. Over 1450 sq.in. wing area. 1/8 scale. 2 large sheets. NO power is reguired. Power: K&B 7.5 turbax fan is optional. Big long flaps too! So cool ! Fun scale, BUILD as a glider/slope soarer or ducted fan.
HISTORY: The U-2 is a single-seat, single-engine, high-altitude, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft. Long, narrow, straight wings give the U-2 glider-like characteristics and allow it to lift heavy sensor payloads to unmatched high altitudes quickly, and keep them there for a long time. The U-2 is capable of collecting multi-sensor photo, electro-optic, infrared and radar imagery, as well as collecting signals intelligence data. It can down link all data, except photo imagery, in near real-time to anywhere in the world, providing war planners with the latest intelligence possible. The U-2 has one the highest mission completion rates in the U.S. Air Force despite the fact that the aircraft us the most difficult to fly due to its unusually challenging takoff and landing characteristics. Due to its high-altitude mission, the pilot must wear a full pressure suit. The aircraft has a General Electric F-118-101 engine that is fuel efficient and lightweight -- negating the need for air refueling on long duration missions. The fleet is undergoing an entire rewire effort to lower its overall electronic noise signature and allow a quieter platform for the newest generation of sensors. The sensors are also in a state of constant upgrades. The cockpit is being redesigned to replace the 1960s vintage round dial gauges with multifunction displays and complete “glass cockpit” technology.
Picture below is of Simon Cocker and his beautiful U-2 done in the same colors as Gary Power's U-2 was done in when he was shot down.
Shot down on 01 May 1960, Powers was held in prison for two years until 1962, when he was exchanged for Soviet Col. Rudolf Abel in the most dramatic East-West spy swap ever to occur in Cold War Berlin. Powers stepped on to the eastern end of the Berlin's Glienicke Bridge spanning the River Havel on February 10 in 1962. At the other end of the bridge, stood Colonel Rudolf Abel, a heavily muffled Soviet master-spy, seized earlier by US security agents after setting up a red spy network in New York in the late 1950s. At a precisely arranged signal, the two men strode on to the bridge, marching purposefully towards one another, Powers heading westward, Abel eastwards. In the middle of the bridge they passed each other silently, with barely a nod of their heads. That spy-swap operation was to be the forerunner of many such East-West prisoner exchanges to take place on the Glienicke Bridge over the next 27 years in Berlin.
I was told that the bright red was to help the recovery crew locate the plane and pilot.
CLEAR THE DECK,,, CLEAR THE DECK,,, LOL
