Number of plan sheets

Post by Tbopper » Fri Dec 28, 2018 7:52 am

I recently purchased a Pietenpol air camper project. With it I received seven plan sheets that was drawn by O. C. Hoopman, dated 1-19-1933, 3-23-1933, 1-25-1934, 3-3-1934, 3-20-1934, 3-26-1934 and one drawn by A. C. Hanft dated3-15-1967. The wing for this project is a three piece wing and not a one piece wing shown on plan sheet dated 3-3-1934. It’s apparent to me that I am missing a plan sheet for the wing. Can someone tell me how many plan sheets was in the set and how do I go about getting the pages that I am missing.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

It would be easier to figure out if you gave us the drawing numbers of the pages you do have, as there are different plans packages available.
The 3/3/34 page could be #5 which is the 1 piece wing and rib plan.

Thank you for your reply.
I have the plans clipped to a hard board to keep from unrolling and rolling them up when I use them. Under the clip I found the sheet numbers in the upper right corner. I was looking in the lower right. I feel dumb.
I have 1 through 7 sheets. I am missing the plans for the two piece wing. You stated that there are several different sets. I don't know how many sheets are suppose to be in my set. Who would be the best source to contact about getting the missing plan sheets.

I called Andrew Pietenpol (grand son of Berny) yesterday and ordered the plans for the 3 piece wing. Nice guy and very forthcoming with information.
