Sikorsky S-43A/JRS-1 Baby Clipper Scale Drawings

Postby tjk44 » Sat Nov 01, 2014 9:01 pm

Are there any good scale drawings other than on the website or the internet on the Sikorsky S-43A/JRS-1 Baby Clipper.
Hoping to scratch build a 1/48 scale model. There are plenty of photos and walkarounds but no decent scale drawings.

Hi tkj44,

I actually have in my personal archive a set of actual blue-prints printed on A3 (I think) paper - they are extremely large and very highly detailed copies of the originals.

The only way these would be copied is through a professional copy-company and that won't be cheap here in the UK.

Mind you, there are gorgeous!

But there are other accurate scale drawings around........let me see what I can find........
Best Regards,

Appreciate the reply Bryan & Chris.

Having A3 (400mmx800mm - 15.75"x31.50"} size copies of the originals I believe you Bryan when you say they are gorgeous.
I love scale drawings, it happens I am a plastic injection designer by trade who use to work on the board but now on the
computer. To print what you got would be costly so hopefully your able to find the other accurate drawings.

Thanks Again.

But, men, A3 format have much smaller size - 297 x 420 mm, or 11.7 × 16.5 in (see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_size). Most part of copier devices can work with such format.
Possibly, dear seawings meaned other paper size - A2, or A1, or even A0, which are really large, of course.
