February 1957 American Modeler[Table of Contents]
Even with so many changes in modeling over the years, some things never grow old. These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, and Air Trails captured the era. Whether you are here to wax nostalgic or for the history, enjoy your visit. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
This 4-view drawing of the Cessna OE-2 Bird Dog was scanned from page 21 of my purchased edition of the February 1957 American Modeler. It is another example of Walter Jefferies' fine scale drawings. See the rudder-only R/C model of the Cessna OE-2 Bird Dog in the July 1962 edition of American Modeler, courtesy of Bob Wischer.

The AMA Plans Service offers a full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing plans also help to support the operation of the Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1 advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.
