Fairchild PT-19 (oz5052)
About this Plan
Fairchild PT-19. Radio control scale model of the primary trainer. Jetco Superscale kit no RC-1. Scale is 1/6, with 72in wingspan for .15 to .35 engines.
Quote: "Hi, Steve: Attached are the plansheets for the Jetco Fairchild PT-19 kit RC-1, developed from Chuck Hollinger's Air Trails plan Fairchild PT-19 (oz327) ca. 1958. Includes the aileron modification for 4-channel operation."
Quote from kit instructions text: "Modelwise the PT posed but one major structural problem; how to handle the wing. This actually resolved itself into an asset after I decided to use a variation of the British 'tongue and box' system. In this way the wing panels outboard of the landing gear are removable as on the real PT-19. By joining them with expendable balsa stubs the wings are protected under all conditions and the dihedral angle may easily be varied; 15 degrees for the first flights and straight plugs, 11 degrees after you've had a litle stick time. This may seem like excessive dihedral - however, the full-size ship has 7-1/2 degrees in each panel. All photos show the model with straight plugs."
Direct submission to Outerzone.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz5052) 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.

User commentsGreetings, Can anyone help my friend? He bought a Jetco kit on eBay, but it isn’t complete. The kit is missing the decals and the windscreen. Can anyone scan the kit markings and help us out? It would be nice if someone could trace the windscreens as well.

This is the same plan as Fairchild PT-19 (oz327) cited in initial description. See that plan for windscreen, markings and lettering are on both plans.

* 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.
