One thing you rarely - if ever
- see in today's modeling magazines is a detailed line drawing of a full-scale airplane
like this 4-view for the Hall's Springfield "Bulldog Racer" by Mr. Walter M. Jefferies,
Jr. Turing out such a work of art required incredible talent and a lot of time.
The image was scanned scanned from page 28 of my purchased copy of the November
1957 American Modeler magazine. Mr. Jefferies and
Mr. Björn Karlström, a
couple hundred of such fine illustrations were produced, often at a prolific rate
of one (or more) each month. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

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.
