Topic tags/keywords: models airplanes vintage aircraft toys oak popular maple southern yellow pine

I am trying to start making solid models of old aircraft, mainly WW11. Does anyone know of a site that I might be able to get some help with this. I have thought about buying the plastic models and using that as guide to go by, other than that I have nothing. I have on the internet but nothing to find. I see a lot of autos and trucks on Lumberjocks that have been built but no planes. I will be using hardwoods on this, mostly oak, popular and maple with some southern yellow pine. The pine is readily available in my neck of the woods. Any help will be appreciated.

Hello Larry, I’m a Georgia boy too.

The best place to find plans for model airplanes is
There are about 7,000 model airplane plans on this website for a free download. Unfortunately, there are few plans just for solid modeling, however these plans will give you the outlines and cross sections you will need. I personally have an extensive model airplane plans collection with some solid model plans for airplanes, boats, and cars. If you e-mail me at I can put these solid model plans on a disk and mail them to you.
