April 1969 American Aircraft ModelerTable of Contents
Aeromodeling has seen significant changes over the decades both in technology and preferences. Magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, and Air Trails were the best venues for capturing snapshots of the status quo of the day. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
Website visitor Rick P. requested that I electronically scan and post this drawing of the 1917 Morane-Saulnier AI (M.S. 29) biplane that appeared in the April 1969 edition American Aircraft Modeler magazine. You might be able to scale up this image below if a suitable set of plans is not available. This full-color 4-view for the 1917 Morane-Saulnier AI were drawn by prolific artist and draftsman Mr. Björn Karlström.
There was no construction article to go along with these drawings. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.
The aircraft in this drawing flew with French Escadrille 156 in 1918. Powerplant was a 180 hp LeRhone 9-cylinder rotary. Two synchronized Vickers .30-cal. machine guns.
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.
