Lohner Type C drawings?


Recommended Posts

Copper State Models (CSM) produced a 1/48 resin model of the Lohner B.II.  The instruction that came with the kit include a beautiful set of drawings and you might be able to find the kit, for less than the 80 Euros the book would cost.  You also might contact CSM and see if they might have a PDF of these drawings that they could part with.  The owners of CSM are serious WWI aviation fans so you would not be talking to a corporate office bean counter but someone that cares about this stuff.  Not saying they would part with them for free but it would be worth seeing what they could do to help.  This kit has been out of production for a while but their resin kits were really amazing.   You also might be able to find a posting from someone that finished the kit and see if they saved these drawings (no one in their right mind toss them out) and would part with them also.

Thanks berman. I’ll be on the lookout, seems like a nice book, although the current going price of 80€ is a bit too steep so I’ll have to wait for a thumbed copy.

 

I got that nice book in my libary ... I paid even more than € 115 for it back in 1999.  You can find scale drawings for the early version of the Lohner B I Series 11, the Lohner B II Series 12, the Lohner B VI Series 16.1 and the Lohner B VIII Series 17 and 17.3 in it.

 

 

Another title which is relevant with regard to the Pfeilflieger is the long out of print "Flugzeuge der österreichischen Firma Lohner 1909-1923" by Reinhard Keimel. As far as I can remember there are numerous scale drawings of Lohner aircraft in it.

 

Just send me a PM. Maybe I can help.

Many thanks guys, that’s a nice selection of options to pursue. 

 

 

BTW, a correction, the cheapest option that was delivering here was not 80€ but 800€ (from amazon.de, books from amazon.com seldom can be delivered here. Here’s another:https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Peter-Grosz/dp/1891268058 ). It does look like a nice tome but that is a bit over my budget :o

 

The Lohner book is reasonably priced though.

That is really an outlandish price!!! 😮 On the other hand it doesn´t suprise me since I made the very same experience when I was searching for specific items. Sometimes really crazy prices show up after a search right next to the same item with a normal price. But it is even worse if the book your are searching for is only showing up with a hefty price like that.

Hi!

I think I have Keimel's drawings of various Lohners, the "C" was one of the most popular so I'm sure it was included in that book. Do you still need them? Also I should have some photos of this beautiful fragile airplane. Be aware that there were several variants of the cockpit cutout.
