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.
