The R5D (C54) had the round porthole type of window and the R6d (DC6) had the square windows. Worked on the R5D-1s in 1959.

Hi!
I also noticed this pitching -up problem with my DC-3 (Marutaka) when flying at reduced speed rasing the nose approximately 20 degrees the airplane tend to continue uppwards despite me giving full down elevator.
The only way to regain level flight has been to give full power and full down elevator....or make a loop and then level of.
I have shifted the Cof G many times and noticed no change in this strange behavoir. I can live with it as the plane is so easy to fly as it is...but this pitching-up tendency really puzzles me.

Group,

I've read this thread from the beginning.  I'm curious if the plans for the DC-7 were finalized and if they are available.  I'd like to begin the process.  The goal is to finish it in the Delta Air Lines livery.

Thanks everyone.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Don

John,

I see this note from 2005. You've mentioned building a 1/10th scale DC-7. Would those plans still be available? If so, can I purchase a copy?

I look forwardto hearing from you.

Guys,

If you contact Mike Emilio on here off Toronto at www.cmsmithplans.com he does have 1/14 scale plans of DC-4. Since they were done on cad using factory drawings, i'm sure he could modify his plans into 6 and 7s also....

Default welcome back Rip Van Winkle

I have been actively building electric Airliners since late 2018. Today I was doing a search and much to my surprise my 2003 thread surfaces on my intetnet search. I started this thread and so much has happened since then. I completed the popular Pat Tritle 60" Douglas DC-6B pictured here. I will bring this thread uo to datr soon. Many thanks tobthosr eho showed interest and previously posted.

This is my completed 60" Pat Tritle designed DC-6 ,in the back ground is my current project an enlarged to 80" W.S. Douglas DC-6B Mainliner
