Uploading old magazine plans
« on: July 17, 2015, 11:29:27 AM »
I have a large collection of Hobbies Weekly magazines and associated plans going back many years. Among many of the wartime plans are a lot of aircraft from the time, varying in size from a single page in the issue to one of their free design sheets. I feel that these would be appreciated here, but I don't know how to get them into the plans gallery. Can I just photo the plans or would it be better to scan the large sheets in sections? Any advice appreciated.

Hello Albert. The plans from magazines would be better scanned as well as larger drawings by section. The one thing to watch out for is the edge of the sections may curved slightly in the scanner. so overlap is key. Once scanned by section we can assemble them to produce a single image usable on line. You may send me the sections directly and I will assemble them for you and post to the gallery or return them to you.

Thank you for that. I'll have a go at one of the larger plans tomorrow, and we can see what happens.
