  • System Schweers Swing Wing - 1914

    SKU: 17-CAT-00006

    Prospectus and technical report on an early German swing wing design.  Privately printed from type, looks like mimeo.  50pp text and technical calculations followed by 43 line drawing illustrations.  Wrps, 8.5 x 13".  A lttle difficult for me to decipher with my limited German and the unusual engineering drawings but it appears to be a swing or rotatiing bi-wing that is connected to a pivoting landing gear.  Some cover chips but otherwise good.

  • 7 Early Aeronca 3-View Blueprints - 1929 to 1932

    SKU: 17-CAT-00005

    Seven blueprints, 3-views, large (about 24x48"), folded.  May be old copies of some tattered blueprints.  Gray images on beige paper.  These would make a wonderful wall-sized mural.  The seven prints are:  C-2(two, both 1929), C-2 (1930), C-2N (1930), C-2D "Cotton Duster" (1932), C-1 (1931), C-3 (1930).  Sorry but I can't split the lot; the group is priced very reasonably.

  • WWI BE2 Full-Size Model Plan

    SKU: 16-CAT-00001

    Gigantic 40x60" full-size model plan for a WWI BE2, blueprint format, British origin.  Folded to a 9x11" size, some corner chipping, paper slightly brittle.  Needs to be flattened and linen mounted.  No date but I'm guessing about 1935.  Picture is of logo in upper left corner.  Striking imager and would make a wonderful wall decoration.  Moderate price; not often found.
