Model Airplane News drawing index
« on: November 24, 2009, 07:26:39 PM »
Here I will post an index of drawings I have access to from Model Airplane News magazine. Most are very basic three views with fuselage cross-sections. Many are not accurate by today's standards, possibly created from photos and factory general arrangement views. MAN had several contributing draftsmen, so the quality of the drawings varies by artist.

Dave,

You've obviously been to your library.
If you check out this link you may be able to fill a few gaps.

http://www.aeroknow.com/magazines/man.htm

I'll check out what I've got pre 1941.

Must admit I stumbled across Ken's site a few years ago and thats what got me hooked on all this(again).

Cheers

Gordon
