Perfect Project — Pitcairn PA-5 Mailwing

Perfect Project — Pitcairn PA-5 Mailwing

I have always loved this black and yellow mail plane hanging in the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC. I bought a 3-view drawing from the NASM and have it imported into my CAD program. Would make a great project and at 1/5.5 scale, it would have a 72 inch span and would be perfect for the Evolution 770 7-cylinder radial engine. Hey! I can dream can’t I? :^)

There’s another example of the mailwing at the Ole’ Rhinebeck Aerodrome about 2 hours away…. Hmmm, anyone want to make a road trip? :^)
