Development of the StratoCardinal came rapidly, as its design drew greatly upon existing aircraft like the StratoGnat and Cardinal. The airframe of the StratoCardinal is essentially the same as with the StratoGnat, with slight differences in the spars while the wing used by the StratoCardinal is identical to that of the Cardinal. Because of this commonality and its conventional design, the StratoCardinal went through testing easily and was soon cleared for publication.
TAA USAF Designation: D323-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8 by 10.5 inch graph paper (4 boxes per inch)
Step 2: Begin Construction
After the fuselage is made, take another sheet of paper that is folded in half along the lines of boxes. Mark out the wing as shown (3 boxes in length, each with an intersection sweep of 1/4 (1 box length lost for every 4 boxes outward from the fuselage.). Then cut it out.
Solid lines indicate places to cut. Dotted lines indicate fold lines.
Note: 1 box = 0.25 inches
