Roy Vaillancourt’s 1/4- and 1/5-scale L-19 Bird Dogs have already proven to be popular scale builds, and now this warbird is available in an even bigger scale! This 147-inch-span model is designed to be powered by a 75 to 150cc engine and weigh 40 to 60 pounds.

Here’s the press release from Vailly Aviation:

By popular demand we have enlarged our famous L-19 to 1/3 scale.

Wing span: 147 inches Weight: 40 – 60 lbs

OAL: 97 in Engine: 75 – 150 cc

Plans: $ 75.00, Cowl: $ 156.00

Landing gear: $ 68.00

We already have the L-19 offered in 1/5 and 1/4 scale and now we have it in 1/3 scale!

We have digitally enlarged our very successful 1/4 scale drawings by 34% and have

transferred them to 6 large sheets. Same easy construction, just bigger! All sheets are 34

inches wide and range from 10 to 14 feet in length. The plans show all structures drawn full

size and include the installation of flaps. Full size templates are also shown for all ribs,

formers and other various parts.

Primary construction is light plywood, balsa and spruce using conventional “tried and

true” building techniques. All structures are built-up and are sheeted with 1/8 or 3/32 inch

balsa. Accessory parts available are: a fiberglass cowl, formed aluminum landing gear.

The model features a two piece wing for easy transportation, yet still provides easy

assembly/disassembly at the field. A five channel radio is required.

The famous CESSNA L-19/0-1 “BIRD DOG”, is an economical giant scale warbird with

docile flight characteristics in any scale. Check out our web site or e-mail us for more
