Cessna OE-2 Bird Dog 4-View
February 1957 American Modeler

February 1957 American Modeler

February 1957 American Modeler magazine cover     [Table of Contents]
  Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology and preferences. Magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, and Air Trails were the best venues for capturing snapshots of the status quo of the day. Still, many things never change, so much of the old content is relevant to today's modeler.
  Whether you are here to wax nostalgic, or are interested in learning history, hopefully you will find what you are seeking. As time permits, I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights (if any) 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.

Notice:
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.
