Victory Model Plans

From the Connecticut Flying Aces Club Squadron “Pinkham Field Handbook”:

Victory Models were conceived and designed during World War II by the team of Ira Dyer and Louis Bucalo.  The motivation wsa the conservation of modelers dwindling supplies of rubber and balsa wood.  Beginning in the January 1943 issue of Flying Aces magazine, seven different plans were published, some of them in companion magazines to Flying Aces.”

I tried to make these PDFs as small as possible, but some are rather large.  All plans fit on one 11″x17″ paper, or two 8.5″x11″ side-by-side.

    George, The plans show a drawing error and cannot be displayed on my machine.

    I downloaded all the “victory” plans, and scanned them into AutoCAD®. I do indoor electric RC, and these scale perfectly. I would really like to see a kit of “the Shaft”, as it is a thoroughly charming plane.

  5. Dana Russell says:

    I agree with Richard, George. The Shaft is a cool little design. I’d certainly buy a kit or short kit.
