  • Aircraft Patterns?

    In checking around, I find very few patterns for military (or any other) aircraft. There are plenty of trucks, trains, and NASCAR patterns, but almost no aircraft (or ship) patterns. I have seen just a couple patterns for WWII bombers, but I need some patterns for Vietnam era fighters, bombers, and helos. Specifically, I would like a pattern or two for an F4C and/or D Phantom, the C-130 Spectre, the C-119 and the B-52. Any suggestions?

    I breifly searched a few months ago for a C-7 Caribou (Dad was a Flight Engineer on them during Vietnam) and found nothing to work with. Since you bring up the topic I will nose around the net and see what I can find.

      Rivari--

      I, too, would like a C-7 since I rode on them once in awhile while I was in 'Nam. As I told Neal, I was an F4 driver for two tours, but I would like to do a C-123, C-130, Huey, and a few more planes I was associated with while there. Let me know if you see anything. I asked a couple of pattern makers if they would be interested, but have received no response from anyone but Jeff Zaffino. He said he would look into it, but that he was very busy right now.

        I remember the F-4s quite vividly from my childhood. My Dad towards the end of his career was assigned to Elmendorf (finished up on 130s) and it was quite regular to hear the F-4s scrambling to intercept Soviet Bear Bombers that liked testing Alaskan air space. They sure make alot of noise!

        He was with the 535th for 3 years (68-71), based I believe in Cam Rahn Bay(SP?).

        I did find a C-130 sketch on the net and providing this isn't for commerical use I think it could be adjusted to the needs of a scroller. If your interested in seeing it I can email it your way.

          Moon and Todd,
          Give me a couple of days to create the patterns (if you're referring to portrait style ones that is), and if you'd like I'll e-mail you a couple of patterns for those. The C-7 and 130 will take a little time, I'll have to hunt down decent photos of those.

              I know these are basic military patterns but they can be found at the berry Basket site.

                Kevin and Todd-

                I would be very interested in anything that you come up with. I have some sketches of aircraft but really don't know how to convert them into good patterns. I am really looking more for the scene/portriat picture of the aircraft than the type shown of the F-15 on the Air Force clock. Sharon--I belong to the scrollsaw portriats and scrollsaw crafters groups and there is is definite lack of aircraft patterns on either of those two. I will check out the others. Thanks all.

                  Check out the site I gave. Rick has many patterns for helicopters and planes and such. Worth a visit.
