Plans Cross Reference List

This work is based on “Build Your Own Airplane” by James R. Bede.

The table cross references part numbers to the drawing where the dimensions for that part are defined. It is based on a recent edition of the book. There may be omissions and/or errors.

Currently the table has been checked through part 069. Parts above that are more likely to be in error (10/14/2001)

NOTES

  1. These are the parts that are in circles on the drawings

  2. These are the numbers that are in a hexagon on the drawing. Callouts are on page 142.

  3. This is the base material. You also need to be aware of the hardness or other properties called out in the drawings.

  4. This is not the maximum dimension of this piece – see drawing.

  5. These are the numbers in rectangles on the drawings.

Plans Revisions

I got curious about what the exact differences between the plans and the book drawings were, so I compiled a list showing what is the same and what s different. I have attached it as an Excel spread sheet. I can’t guarantee there aren’t any errors. Some of the print is hard to read. Both were purchased from Jim Bede in 2000.

NOTE 1: THIS DRAWING IS LISTED IN THE MASTER LIST AS BD-4-2-04 SHEET 2, BUT THE ACTUAL DRAWING HAS A DIFFERENT TITLE

NOTE 2: SOME DATES WERE NEAR ILEGABLE AND I MADE THE BEST GUESS THAT I COULD. ALSO, THE PLACEMENT OF THE MODIFICATION BLOCK VARIED AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT I MISSED ONE OR TWO.

NOTE 3: SOME OF THE 1976 DATES MAY BE 1970 DATES. THE ZERO HAS A LINE EXTENDING ABOVE AND I INTERPERETED IT TO BE A SIX. OTHERS WERE CLEARLY A SIX.

NOTE 4: DATES ARE DIFFERENT BUT NOTES ON REVISIONS ARE THE SAME. THE BLUEPRINT (PLANS) LOOKS LIKE THE DATE MAY HAVE BEEN CHANGED FROM 70 TO 76.

NOTE 5: THE DATE WAS ACTUALLY CLEARER IN THE PLANS THAN IN THE BOOK. THIS IS A THREE SHEET DRAWING, AND THE DATE SHOWN IS THE LATEST DATE ON ANY OF THE THREE SHEETS

(Ed.: I marked the lines where the book differed from the plans with yellow).
