Default Dennis Bryant Fieseler Storch

I have acquired a 94" Dennis Bryant Fieseler Storch partially built with four sheets of plans. I think the person who built it gave up when it came to the cabin. The airframe is essentially completed with operating scale gear except for the greenhouse cabin. I have no parts and the plan does not give me the type of directions I am used to with kits which are more visual (photographs) and step by step instructions. I may be spoiled from building all the kits and this is a plane from scratch. If anyone has any suggestions or help how I can start to build this cabin and have it turn out to be reasonably faithful to scale, I would be grateful. I had one person tell me to suck it up and start soldering bits and pieces together, but I am not sure that this is the right strategy. Some photos I have seen show the cabin built from 1/8 dowel and others from 1/8 brass. If anyone has built the Dennis Bryant Storch or similar and was overwhelmed by the cabin structure but persevered, please let me know how they did it.

Thanks

Karleyman ,
At first the plans look a little daunting don't they!! The cabin area is outlined with the dowels as shown on the plans and the cabin door frame is brass tubing silver soldered together. All are hand fitted and it is more than a little tedious but it is how it is done. One piece at a time .

We have been workin up a full kit based on these plans. I have about 50 detail shots on the construction of the prototype that might be of help to you. If you would like me to email you a set you can contact me at ArizonaModels.com. The files are too big.

Hi guys,

Right ... I have just completed an Aeronca Sedan (PICA Kit Build) and the next item on the building board is to be a 94in Fieseler Storch (Dennis Bryant Plans & a basic wood-pack).

I have already spent about 3 hours pouring over the plans (4 large pages) with very sketchy notes here & there ... and will probably have to spend quite a few more hours contemplating what lies ahead.

Somehow I am getting the idea that this is NOT a weekend build...

Would love to hear from fellow Dennis Bryant 94" Fieseler builders & owners....

LOL. No it is definitely NOT a weekend build . If this is your first
go at any of the Dennis Bryant plans he does include a lot of detail in his drawings . His methods may not be clear at first but the more you study them ,the more sense they make. It is a good confidence building experience. If you can complete it you will feel that you can tackle most any plans.

Hey CK1,

Nope this is most definitely not my "first build" ... I am still studying the Plans and when I'm done the process will commence...

Pictured are some images of my current build nearing completion. PICA Kit's Aeronca Sedan (84 inch wingspan) that has been slightly modified & adapted.
