March 1969 American Aircraft ModelerTable of Contents
Some things never grow old. These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, & Young Men captured the era. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
Here are plans for the Down Draft Dodger that I electronically scanned from my purchased copy of the March 1969 American Aircraft Modeler magazine. It was a prize-winning hand-launched glider design. If you need the construction article, I can scan it for you. You might be able to scale up the image below if you cannot find the plans now. Plans for this fine model were drawn by Mr. Kit Bays. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

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.
