MACCHI M39 model airplane plan



The Macchi M.39 is a Hydroplane "sea-plane" with a configuration developed by the firm Italian Aeronautica-Macchi Aeronautics for participating in the Coppa-Schneider Cup of 1926. The fuselage was entirely built with a wooden structure, dressed in scale and in the sections in proximity of the motor, in metal. Also the wing used the same principle: two longerons set in fir on which the wing was inserted into the fuselage relief supporting a covering in scale. The wing was strengthened with a series of connecting rods in high strength steel, that you connect the boots with the longerons and these last with fire proof covering. The helix was initially wooden for then to entirely be turned into one metallic with regulation of the footstep. The characteristic that distinguished this airplane from the precedents was surely the presence of radiators to the firewall on the back and center of the wings and on the anterior part of the leading edge. These were constructed with some pipes in brass with thickness reduced inside which it flowed the liquid of cooling. The 'Spartan' construction of the airplane testified its vocation to its durability while maintaining maximum lightness.

Plan is modern and highly detailed. Plan is scalable.

About the plan source:

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 MACCHI M39 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.
