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
1909 Curtiss Model A 4-View

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.
