Cessna T-41 Mescalero – 3-View

I have neither been able to find a decent 3-View of the Mescalero nor the civilian version, the Cessna 172. I have, however, been able to purchase the plans for a 45″ model of the 172, which is fairly scale. I will be using this, together with lots of pictures, to get the proper outline, at the proper scale.

Scale Size:

Wing-span: 2.184 m
Length: 1.642 m
