You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Fairchild 22 or any other PDF plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or the following ID (ID:81060) and send us a message with the desired wingspan and any other info you may find useful.

IMHO, not really a beginner's flying model lincoln on 13/02/2016 05:52
It's got a lot of detail and needs dihedral, I expect. Notice that the model in the picture on the left has some dihedral.

A Fairchild 24 might be a better choice for a beginner*, though it still has various struts. But the wing attaches directly to the cabin. Slightly misaligned landing gear matters a lot less than a slightly misaligned wing. It may be that I'm a bit pessimistic about the difficulty of getting parasol wings aligned correctly, since I've built a number of successful stick and tissue, rubber powered models, but not one with a parasol wing. Or a Rearwin Speedster. Outdoors, a beginner is probably best off with a 20 to 24 inch span, indoors somewhat less.

This is a Golden Age Reproductions restoration of an old plan. You can get nicely printed copies, on a substantial grade of paper, from GAR. goldenagereproductions.com (I may be biased. I go to club meetings and drool over all those plans on a regular basis. Fortunately for you, metaphorical drool evaporates very quickly.) The plans aren't on the web page, you'll have to ask.

Aerofred has 25 inch and 16 inch Comet Fairchild 24's, although the big one has a radial. Also several 15 or 16 inch Rearwin Speedsters and a 24 inch one by Peerless. GAR has kits (and plans) for the Comet Fairchilds and a 16 inch Comet Rearwin, plus a kit (and plans) for a 24 inch Peerless Rearwin.

That's probably more than you wanted to know.
