About this Plan

Fairchild PT-19. Rubber scale model.

The Earl Stahl Fairchild PT-19 (oz9291) was first published in Air Trails Dec 1940. This here is a later redrawn copy by Al Patterson from MB, in July 1984.

Quote: "Old Timer of the Month. Fairchild PT-19. Designed by Earl Stahl. Drawn by Al Patterson. Text by Bill Northrop.

What a combination! Earl Stahl's rubber scale models are legend, and so is the Fairchild PT-19. This perfect coupling took place for the December 1940 issue of Air Trails, where the plans were printed full size on a two page spread. Although the span is 23 inches, this presented no space problem, as the magazine was 10 x 13-1/2 inches in those days.

According to Stahl, the only scale modification, to improve in flight stability, was a slightly enlarged stabilizer. Scale dihedral was 1-7/8 inches, as used on Stah's original, but he suggests an additional 1/4 inch in each panel. Covering is blue and yellow tissue.

The original, with 8 strands of 1/8 in rubber, climbed in large left circles and glided to the right."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 21/08/2014: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy at correct scale, thanks to JJ.

    ScaleType: This (oz328) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairchild_PT-19
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
