SCRATCH BUILT PART 2/P-40 DRAWINGS
These are the drawings I made for several "scratch-built" items I made for the 1/32 scale P-40E model. At age 15, (1946) I became a good "Architect" and was drawing house plans for my dad's construction company. All the measurements were type written on separate letterhead paper.
Very interesting series. Please continue.
As architect, I find this very interesting 🙂 - especially now in the era of CAD, hand drawn technical drawing are refreshing.
Yes they are. We had a 4'x6' drawing board that tilted on a slight angle, which could be changed. We had scale drawing rulers and you could select a scale of 1/4" equal's 1 foot and/or any size you wanted to draw. Most everything was drawn in "Quarter" scale, (1/4").
I learned all this from my dad as he was one of several "draftsmen" at Firestone Tire and Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio which was called " The Rubber Capitol of the World."
Yes, I used drawing board like this at first year of mu studies 🙂

Reminds me of the technical drawing lessons I took when I was a cadet at the Hellenic Air Force Academy, back in 1984. That is amazing piece of information Rodney. I admire you commitment to excellence. Thanks for sharing, my friend!
