AMA Plans Service now has a new plan for sale! The Ritchie-Wertz Company’s Biplane Bomber, designed by Charles Hampson Grant in 1919.
The Biplane Bomber in the museum’s collection is damaged and missing the tail and a wing. Museum Volunteer Gary Rice has spent about six months drawing a complete set of plans for the model by studying the model, known pictures, and published information to complete the missing sections.
Part of his research included putting a small camera inside the fuselage to find structural and clues left during the manufacturing process.
The museum acknowledges that the plans for the Biplane Bomber are not 100% original, but they are as close as can be based on the original model and existing supporting evidence.
