    Producing Plans

    I've been in this hobby for many years, but I have never scratch-built anything. I have plenty of experience with plans-built aircraft, kits, and so forth, but I have never drawn a set of plans. I want to build a Boeing Model 40 biplane at 1/4 or 1/5 scale. I have yet to decide on which scale I will use. The scale will determine the size of the radial engine and there are a few out there that can do the job.

    I have plenty of large paper to do the job. Does anyone have suggestions on how to progress?

    Make sure you have a good accurate three view.
    I would scan it and use a CAD program to start drawing. You can scale to any size after.
    Draftsight is free and works like autocad.
    If pencil and paper, then have the three view blown up to the required size and start tracing.
