View Full Version : Piper Cherokee reference images?

04-03-2005, 06:23 PM
Does anyone know a good source for general aviation aircraft reference images? Specifically, I'm looking for a late 60's Cherokee 235. Piper's site wasn't much help. I've googled my brains out with little luck, but I'd imagine with all the Flight Simulator fans that there's got to be a good source of 3-views and blue-prints out there. Know any?

I was surprised at the lack of on-line rsources for this plane.

While not tri views http://www.aircraftbrowser.com/1967%20Piper%20Cherokee%20235%20(N9238W).htm does hve some nice large pics that might augment other sources. Click on the main pic and the links below it.

You might also try contacting the folks at Scale RC Modeler (http://www.scalercmodels.com/) or R/C Modeler (http://www.rcmmagazine.com/e/env/0001CrEnPPdp43Udxg188u4/index.html?link=/index.html).

The Pipers were once popular r/c planes and they, especially Scale RC Modeler, can probably direct you to info sources for acurate info.
