CAD Plans by JM

Thanks to some sterling work by John Marsh, we now have a growing set of building plans for carrier models, all drawn or converted into ultra-accurate Computer Aided Design format. You can download these full-sized plans as PDF files, and then print them yourself using a ’tiling’ app (print on A4 sheets then tape them together) or take them to your local copy shop for a full-sized A0 printout.

If you’ve designed a model for which you’d like to see a plan drawn up in this way, (and don’t mind other pilots building from it to fly against you!) then Email John for a chat about what he needs and how to get that info to him.

To view a plan, please click the link in the ‘Aircraft’ column. This will send it to your ‘Downloads’ folder, from which you can view, save or print it.
