These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, & Young Men captured the era. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

This 4-view drawing of the Fairchild Model KR21 was scanned from page 29 of my purchased edition of the October 1967 American Modeler. It is another example of Björn Karlström's fine scale drawings. Airplanes and Rockets website visitor Jonathan D.

A fairly extensive Google search on the Fairchild KR21 turned up nothing other than a handful of photos and an NTSB accident report from 1962. Not even Wikipedia has an entry for it.

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.
