Canada's de Havilland DCH-3 Otter
March 1962 American Modeler

March 1962 American Modeler

March 1962 American Modeler - Airplanes and Rockets     [Table of Contents]
  Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology and preferences. Magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, and American Modeler before that, were the best venues for capturing snapshots of the status quo of the day. Still, many things never change, so much of the old content is relevant to today's modeler.
  Whether you are here to wax nostalgic, or are just interested in learning history, hopefully you will find what you are seeking. As time permits, I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

There was no article accompanying this picture and 5-view drawings of Canada's de Havilland DCH-3 Otter. There is a nice in-air photo of an Otter sporting a really weird set of floats that look like they're too small and mounted backwards, and there are two highly detailed 5-view drawings. Versions are shown with standard wheels, with floats (normal looking ones), and with snow skis. Per Wikipedia, "The DHC-3/CSR-123 Otter was used until 1980 by the Royal Canadian Air Force and its successor, the Air Command of the Canadian Forces. It was used in Search and Rescue, as the "CSR" denotes Canadian Search and Rescue. The engine is a Pratt & Whitney R-1340 (1,340 cubic inches) geared engine. The version used in the Otter was geared for lower prop revs and consequently lower airspeed."
