Fairchild 24W
 
I was looking at the new plans on the Wendell Hostetler's site, the Fairchild 24 R looks nice however are there any plans around for a large scale 24w?

Great radial project

26% and 117" isn't big enough?

Hahaha no, no that's plenty big enough. One is a inline motor the other is a radial.

The plans are for the R & W.
The plans show both, and both cowls are available...

I will now go back under my rock.doh

Helps if I look a bit harder. Thanks for pointing that out.

I think I should order some plans.;)

Try this on 144" wing span. Radial or ranger engine.

I have the Hostetler plans. They look good to me, and I hope to begin construction in the near future.

Hi guy's,

Has anyone seen the 144" Scale Aero model built or have any more details?

Regards Ross

The plans are nice, but older in design. I considered them, but decided on the Hostetler plans.

Thanks Tom, you will have to keep us posted on your progress. If I had the time I would love to build the Luscombe Phantom.

I built the 1/4 scale by Graham Smith. Very nice flying plane and very scale just like the fullscale.

I love that airplane (Phantom)! I'd like to build one with the Stanavo Oil NC7734, serial # 109 red bird color scheme! The 'N' number was chosen so that when the aircraft flew over its competition (?) the wing numbers would read- h-e-l-l! I have started plans in 1/4 for this airplane. It's absolutely lovely.

Fairchilds are available in many color schemes. Any ideas, presently?
