Here are plans for the De Havilland
DH60G Gipsy Moth that I electronically scanned from my purchased copy of the May
1969 American Aircraft Modeler magazine. Because they span two or more pages, I
had to adjust the size and alignment a bit to get halves to line up properly. You
might be able to scale up the image below. Plans for this fine model were drawn
Mr. Björn Karlström. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.
"The de Havilland DH 60 Moth was a 1920s British two-seat touring and training
aircraft that was developed into a series of aircraft by the de Havilland Aircraft
Company." - Wikipedia
November 1, 2020 Update: Mr. Peter M. wrote a couple weeks
ago requesting a high resolution version of this 4−view line drawing of the De Havilland
DH60G Gipsy Moth in order to assist his in creating a 3D computer model of it on
3D Warehouse website. As you can see from the screen capture above, he
did an amazing job! Click on the image to view the live 3D model that can be rotated
and zoomed. Peter's model replicates the airplane flown by Amy Johnson on her historic
11,000-mile solo flight in 1930 from solo from London England to Darwin Australia.
Many thanks to Peter for making this available.

This 3D model was also created by Mr. Peter M.
"It took a month and a half, starting on the 14 September. Though I have only been
working 2 or 3 hours on weekdays. The software I use is called
3DS Max then I
exported it to Sketchup for the 3d Warehouse".
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.
