This 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
"The 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.
