Bing Autoplan Conservation, pt. 12

Guess what!  After almost two years, the Bing Autoplan drawings are done!

Several sheets of the Bing Autoplan drawings at the NMAM.A close-up of the engine diagrams from the Bing Autoplan at the NMAM.A close-up of the wing assembly of the Bing Autoplan at the NMAM.Want to build your own example of this 102 year old flying machine?

The Bing Autoplan on display at the National Model Aviation Model Museum.You can purchase the plans, hand-drawn from the original 1914 Bing in the museum’s collection, from the AMA’s Plans Service Department, Plan #60595.  (Note that the drawings are accurate as far as visible.  The engine and tank were not dis-assembled for the plans and the drawings are based on visual cues only.)

Many thanks go to Tom G. who started to work on the plans, and then Gary R who finished them, spending almost every Tuesday for the last year and half working on these plans.  We hope everyone appreciates their work as much as we do.

    1. Hi, Mark, sorry for the delayed reply! I was going to tell you to call Greg and speak to him about the plans, but he tells me you already have been. Good luck with your project!
