4-view drawing of the Fairchild 22 C-7-F (1934) was scanned from page 38B
and 38C of my purchased edition of the July 1968 American Aircraft Modeler.
It is another example of Björn Karlström's fine scale drawings.
aircraft was designed by Kreider-Reisner during negotiations by Sherman
Fairchild to take a major share in the company. Marketed as the Fairchild
22 Model C7 the aircraft was certified in March 1931. The Fairchild 22 was
a mixed-construction braced parasol-wing monoplane with a fixed tailwheel
landing gear and a braced tail unit. It had two tandem open cockpits and
was initially powered by a 80hp (60kW) Armstrong Siddeley Genet radial engine.
After test flying the prototype the first production aircraft were re-engined
with a 75hp (56kW) Michigan Rover inverted inline engine. The aircraft was
fitted with both inline and radial piston engines."

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.
