PB-1 Twin Plan Cleaned

PB-1 Twin Plan Cleaned

The Boeing XPB (company Model 50) was an American twin-engine biplane long-range patrol flying boat of the 1920s. A single example was built for the United States Navy.

The plans for the PB – 1 twin was published in the January 1958 of American Modeler Magazine designed and drawn by Bill Eckmeier. The aircraft is powered by 2 Cox Babe Bees and a push pull configuration mounted on the pylon between the upper and lower wings. The top wing's wingspan is 44 inches while the bottom wingspan is 38 inches. The fuselage construction is substantial in that it's sheeted with balsa then fiberglass over the entire fuselage. Aside from the engine pylon construction of the model airplane is pretty much standard model airplane construction. An interesting aspect of the plan shows the placement of a Babcock BC–3 RC receiver which uses vacuum tubes. For those interested I've attached a Babcock BC–3 receiver and BC–2 transmitter instruction manual as the article for this plan. Radio control equipment has come a long way in the intervening years.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
