4-view drawing of the Fairchild Model KR21 was scanned from page 29 of my
purchased edition of the October 1967 American Modeler. It is another example
of Björn Karlström's fine scale drawings. Airplanes and Rockets website
visitor Jonathan D.
A fairly extensive Google search on the Fairchild
KR21 turned up nothing other than a handful of photos and an NTSB accident
report from 1962. Not even Wikipedia has an entry for it.
See some examples of restored
Fairchild Model KR21 biplanes (and
here). Here is an advertisement for the KR21 in the December 1930
Aero Digest magazine.

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.
