I know this thread dried up for a while, but I thought some follow-up might be worth it. That same ashtray in the beginning found its way to me for a custom overhaul. It did go through a major O. Thanks to you all, I was able to do enough research to improve the basic assemblies to something close to how the BB-1 Silver Lancer was designed. Of the 32 changes are these... new center float under the belly, underwing pontoons, new contra-rotating props, rare-earth magnet under the central pylon, updated lead pilot figure (circa 1938) and new nameplates. That old spring steel arm was replaced by one typically used by Daka-Ware ashtrays. Send me a note if you would like more details.

As an aside, the Bill Barnes airplane designs are commonly built and flown as rubber-powered balsa and tissue scale models in their fictitious scale categories.

Regards, Tom

Hi there. I´m from Cali, Colombia. I am a scale modeller and my next project is to make a model of Bill Barnes Snorter, in 1/8 scale!

The model will be exhibited at the Fénix Air Museum, (www.museoaereofenix.org), in Cali, Colombia. Some original copies of the novels will be exhibited with the model.

I want to know if someone can share the archive of the plans for both the Scarlet Stormer and the Snorter, which are published on this page, but with better resolution.

I leave a couple of links for you to know my work:

My father, Ferrando Acuña, was also a modeller and painter. He painted the Scarlet Stormer that appears on this page published without author credit. The painting was reviewed in this article:


I appreciate any help you can give me.

Hi Graham. Thanx's for your comment. I'm searching for a high resolution file of the 3 views drawing of the Bill Barnes Snorter and Scarlet Stormer planes you publish. Can you share it? I'm planing to scratch build those planes in 1/8th scale. I would appreciate any help about this Forgive my Spanglish.
Best regards from Cali, Colombia

easybuiltmodels.com will cheerfully sell you a kit for Bill Barnes "Silver Lancer" airplane. The kit includes enough laser-cut balsa wood pieces to build a rubber-powered, free-flight model.

Part of a Bill Barnes pulp novel. I ran out of time before I could scan all of the novel.

Hello Riggerob! Thanks for scanning "The Curse of the Killer". Please post when you get a chance to scan the full story. I have two Facebook pages dedicated to Bill Barnes: https://www.facebook.com/2theskies and the group where I post the scanned stories at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2317483738506752/?source_id=356481638551511. Please check them out.

Do you have other Bill Barnes stories to scan? I would like to include them in my personal collection and share them to my group. I have attached a spreadsheet with the stories I currently have. Contact me at billbarnes1934@hotmail.com, or through the Facebook pages.

I hope that we can set up sharing these wonderful stories.
