A lot of people ask us to help find an old plan. Usually it's a plan for a model they built and flew themselves, back in the day. Or maybe a model they always wanted to build, but never got around to. There are thousands of plans on Outerzone, but many are still missing. These are requests for plans we don't have.
This 'Wanted' section is here so that you, the reader, can help us out. Below is the list of plans wanted, by who, and why. If you can help locate a good quality scan of these plans (at say 300 dpi, or more) then please contact us.
Got a request for yourself? Then see the bottom of this page for how to add a request to this page.
US electric kit 16"
Please find me a plan of a US electric kit: 16" span cabin style, sheet slabsided, wire undercart, parallel chord wings, shown on box with black coloured fuselage, small dihedral and meant to be flown indoors. The cabin is like a celluloid sheeted Korda Wakefield, swept back style. I saw it originally in a US magazine as a kit. There was one kit so cute in cardboard box kit box for sale on our 'ebay' about 8-12yrs ago for 80 pounds but I was too slow. I've tried 3 times to build it from memory but never got it right and always overweight. Thanks.

Beck-Mahoney Sorceress biplane
Many years ago, I saw a beautiful peanut scale model of a Sorceress racing biplane on the Shonai Peanut Builder's web site. I checked this week and the photo is still on their web site. The model is a peanut scale 13" wingspan Beck-Mahoney Sorceress biplane. All the information appears to be in the language of the model designer, Japanese. A language in which I wish I could communicate, but I cannot. Further, I have no idea where to look for help. The designer may not even know there would be interest in the plans. Is there any chance you have, or can get a copy of that plan?

Morris the Knife
I was wondering if you have the plans of the Morris the Knife airplane? It's from Morris Hobbies, and that's unfortunately all I know about it. But it's not the " Pen Knife", it's called " Morris The Knife". I would appreciate a lot your help!

Berkeley kits Curtiss Helldiver biplane and Spitfire, both for control line.
In order to complete my collection of Berkeley plans from kits, I need these two. No matter if they need restoration and with or without parts.

I'm looking for the plan of the model Tamecat, Paracid. It is a F-14, a semimaqueta and I can not find it anywhere. The model is from JEFF TROY'S or World model. It's a trainer to 40 engine, wingspan 1,76 mts, fuselage 1, 27 mts. I really like this model because it is a trainer in the form of an F-14 Tomcat and besides that it is a high wing and therefore very good rope, it was very difficult to see it fly to a friend.

Pe-Pe by the Fairy Aviation Co.
I still have plane of a model I flew 20 years ago and the guy at the time said it was a old design but I have never found another model or name of this ( Pe-Pe ) by "the Fairy Aviation C.O." I'm not sure if it is genuine and can't remember the details he told me, maybe French? I tried it first with electric back in the 90s but was too heavy then two channel OS .15. Does anyone know of the model?

P-51B Mustang by David Vaughan, 1979
I am interested in plans of a P-51B Mustang drawn in 1979 by Mr David Vaughan and l believe published in RCM&E in the same year. It is a very good 1/6 scale Mustang. l am sure it will be appreciated by old time scale builders, also a quality design for Outerzone collection. Thank you!

Fun Scale Cobra by Mark Smith
I have been searching for a set of the construction drawings, parts drawing and wing plan for the Fun Scale Cobra by Mark Smith. It was kitted by either Jemco or Dynaflite. After I learned to fly, it was my first sort of scale airplane, powered by a Super-Tiger .23 and had plenty of power. It had excellent flight characteristics and I had more than 300 flights on it before it was necessary to retire it. I have not been able to fly for a few years but I have built 2 Goldberg trainers to start with and would like to move up to another Cobra. Please help.

M.E.N. Twin Trainer
I have been in the hobby of model airplanes for 74 years. Now at age 84 I still continue to enjoy the hobby. I have flown everything from u-control to free flight to radio control, electric and gas. How can we forget rubber power. Most of my models are scratch built. At times I cannot determine if I enjoy building more than flying or flying more than building. I'm in good health and I contribute this to some degree to the flying field and work bench. I have never built or flown a twin power model and recently I have a want to do so. An RC Groups member told me of the "The M.E.N. Twin Trainer", an ideal balsa model for the first time twin powered builder and pilot. I know very little of this model other than it is a balsa kit, approximately 2 meter wing span, twin powered electric of gas.

1/4 Scale Piper Cub Kit, by OK Models Pilot

World Engines, Hawk 460
I am looking for the plan from World Engines for their Hawk 460. I think it has a 52 inch wingspan and was made in the early 1970s. It is an interesting foam /Balsa hybrid. I think it was a very advanced fabrication for the time.

Cruisaire by Woody Woodward
I would REALLY, REALLY like to find a set of plans for Woody Woodward's 10 powered Cruisaire. Woody was one of the two people that taught me to fly RC. The other was Tony N. from the T & A Hobby Lobby in Burbank, CA. Tony taught me on a Royal Colt, and Woody taught me on his Cruisaire. Later he gave it to me. That was about 1979.

Piper Cub 1/4 scale from Premier Balsa Products (not Carl Goldberg Models)
Hello, I was recently given a Carl Goldberg Piper Cub kit in 1/4 scale with a 106in wingspan. I'm new to the hobby, so my knowledge base is pretty small. Unfortunately, though the kit was never assembled and seems to be complete, it is missing the full scale plans. The receipts that came with the kit (for ancillary items) are dated 1992 and 1993, so presumably the kit was manufactured and sold around or before that time. I've already emailed Great Planes/HobbyCo, who seem to have bought Carl Goldberg Models out sometime around 2007, and have searched the internet pretty thoroughly without finding a scrap of information about the kit, so presumably it's fairly rare. I'd hate to let the kit go to waste, but I am certainly not skilled enough to try to build it without the plans. Attached is an image of the box, I can attach more images if it's helpful. Thank you, PS Hello, Thank you for posting my wanted post. Unfortunately last night I realized that the kit was actually produced by Premier Balsa Products. Their logo on the box was mostly missing, and at some point someone had put the instructions for the Carl Goldberg smaller scale kit in the box. I'm still searching for the Premier Balsa Products plan though. Thank you.

I am hoping (against hope) that you will be able to assist me! I started building this kit years ago and having recently retired I now have the time to complete the project. I have the plans but cannot find the instruction manual anywhere. Is there any chance that you have this in your archives or advise where I might be able to obtain a copy? I have hunted high and low but to no avail. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks and regards.

Top-Flite Sierra .40 Trainer
Probably it's not a best seller and may be not a good trainer but I like the appearance of Top-Flite Sierra .40 Trainer. The kit was discontinued for over 10 maybe 20 years, and according to the information I had received from the recent owner of the Top-Flite they also don't have a copy of the plan to sell. So may I request your kind assistance to find this plan from an old modeller? Thanks in advance.

Veron Super Robot Trainer, RCM&E
I would love to find a set of plans for the Veron Super Robot Trainer. It's somewhat hard to find - I only managed to find an article of this model in an old RCM&E magazine. It's a very nice looking trainer which had the lines as a real airplane should look, not the usual box shape trainer that we know today. Is there a chance to get a good set of plans for this particular model?

I am looking for a set of Aircobra Plans for the Sterling kit. This is the Maxey Hester full sized version. I have hunted for this kit for a while as I like to build stuff that I couldn't afford when I was a kid. Found one and bought it, got it home only to find that it was complete, but no plans. Can't seem to find them anywhere on the web. This is a fairly common kit, thousands were sold, so someone must have a set off in the corner that I can either buy or copy. I know that they are probably huge. Would love the help.

Hi all. I am originally from Worcester England but now reside in Victoria Australia. Your site is a real dream come true to us RC aircraft fans. I was wondering if there is anybody out there with the plans for an ugly stick biplane. I would love to build one of these but can't find the plans anywhere. If you could point me in the right direction I would be eternally grateful. If not I may convert an original ugly stick plan. Anyway thanks for a great site and keep up the good work.

Delta Wing Jet, 18" wing span
Hi, I wonder if you can help me. I have been looking for ages for a plan or details about a Delta Wing Plane I built in the 60s. I cannot for the life of me remember whether I built it from a kit or just a plan ( I'm sure it was a kit ). It was a solid balsa construction Delta Wing Jet type of about 18'' wing span. It was launched using several strands of rubber which were anchored in the ground, & the plane was hooked onto the other end & pulled back some distance before releasing. It had an elevator which was held in an up position by an elastic band, but due to the speed of the launch flattened out to some extent then went to maximum as the plane reached the peak of it's launch, ( more strands or rubber for launching obviously gave more speed & height ! ) this then gave it a nice flat glide. Any help would be appreciated.

Veco Smoothie by Bob Palmer
I'm looking for the plans to a Veco Smoothie, a Bob Palmer model, that was produced back in the mid 1960s. The Veco kit was a modification to Bob's original design, from Air Trails. Some say the original with a bit thicker wing flew better, others just like the lines of the Veco kit. The model had an upright engine, but the Veco plans showed two versions for an inverted engine. I was in the Army back then, and several of us had an interest in CL flying. Our Chief Master Sergeant built a Veco Smoothie that he flew very well. When I got out of the Army, the first kit I purchased was the Veco Smoothie, probably for $7.95. Just a touch of nose weight and it flew like a dream with a Fox 35.

Hi Steve, With the help of modellers from around the world I've been gathering together the Flying Scale Inc plans. These are beautiful plans and I think it would be such a shame if they were lost. Of the 82 plans listed I've located 80 but am looking for two, plan S-13 Stephens Akro and plan C-16 Champion Citabria. I'm hoping to make many of these available through Outerzone where not infringing on anyone selling them. Any help to find these two plans would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Spitfire 24/Seafire 47 from Micro Mold
Hi Steve, I was pointed to outerzone.co.uk by a fellow modelling connoisseur and TBH it's been a pleasure to browse old plans, which I do regularly. Thanks for taking the time and effort to run the site. Sometime in the early 1980s I bought a 44" span Micro Mold 1/10 scale Spitfire 24/Seafire 47 kit which I planned to build as a Seafire 47, even though I had only just started flying a DB Mascot trainer and was nowhere near skilled enough to fly anything trickier. I never got round to building the kit, which I regret, and I think it was eventually lost in a house move. I did get to fly a slope-soaring MM Spitfire 24 a couple of years ago - built by somebody else - and it was really quite nice... I now have a bucket list which includes a variety of things, many of them concerned with doing things that I planned to do years ago; I'd like to have a go at any of the old Micro-Mold 1/10th scale "Famous Warbird" series, especially the Spitfire 24/Seafire 47 but a FW190D or P-51B would be equally welcome, so I'd be most grateful if you could add those to your wanted list. rgds,

Sweet Sixteen by Richard Miller
I'm looking for a hand launch glider from the early sixties named "Sweet Sixteen" by Richard Miller. Richard is dead now and so there is no way to contact him. I built a bunch of these gliders about the time they were published and lost all of them to the great thermal god Hung. I'm guessing it was published in American Modeler because there is another Richard Miller plan on this site published in the magazine dated 1963. The Sweet Sixteen was probably earlier than that, maybe 61 or 62, because we moved in 63 and all my old magazines disappeared. I'd sure like to build some more if someone has the plans. Thanks.

Hello Steve, Many thanks indeed for the superb work you have put into creating this site. I am looking for a clearer copy of the Model Shop Hawker Demon plan and parts. A copy of the plan is already here on OZ, but several line details don't quite meet up properly - possible from having been scanned from a plan that had been stored folded. I wonder if someone has a better copy? Best regards,

Robbe Eos (?)
Hello Steve, I have very fond memories of my first free flight glider kit (in the 70s). I believe it was from Robbe and was called 'Eos', 'Eol' or something like that. The lower surface of the wing was a balsa sheet on which the ribs were glued. This made it rather robust, without the risk of the fabric being punched by grass/branches. The two wings halves were hinged in the middle and could be folded for transport. The rear fuselage was a truss structure. I estimate the span was around 80cm (30in). I would appreciate if somebody could come up with the plan. I would love to build one again with my nephew. Best regards,

VECO Taylor Cub
Steve, There is a vendor up on eBay selling copies of the plans for something like $24 US ($18 + s/h), but it still needs to be 'preserved' for everyone. I bought a kit back in the early '70s (probably had been sitting on the store shelf a long time already) and built it as best as my unskilled fingers could manage. Now that my skills are better but my fingers don't cooperate anymore, I'd like to try building it again. I think it had a 35in wing, and design-wise it is very similar to plan #193 (32in, Roger Hammer, 1940, Air Trails). Love the site, visit it every day. Building the Shereshaw 'Champion' right now, with the build log on RCGROUPS.

I have drawings of the parts from a kit I once had which can be used for CNC cutting but I don’t have the plan any longer. Could you put out a request for a copy of the plan please. Regards,

Redwing CL from Darwin Model Airplane Co
Steve, I have attached a brochure I received from a modeler regarding the Darwin Model Airplane Company. I’m trying to locate a drawing for the Redwing Jr. (span 30”) which I had built from a kit over 50 years ago. I have contacted members of the Darwin family still living in Ann Arbor, Michigan, they no longer have much information left from the original company founded by Roy F. Darwin in the ‘40s. Roy passed on in the ‘80s. They did send me several photos of the Darwing Wing models still hanging at their home, but nothing on the Redwing Jr. Interesting the Darwin company offered almost ready to fly models also...

Tige A1 glider
Hello Steve, Congratulations for your good work! I am looking for the plan (3 view is OK) of a free flight A/1 class glider named 'TIGE'. I built it in 1980, then it should be published probably in Aeromodeller Annual before that date. Not sure about the magazine, may be I am wrong. Best regards,

Fly Baby by Dynaflite

Many thanks,keep up the good work!! Greetings,

Hi Steve, First, thanks for all the effort you put into OZ. I've been in model airplanes from the mid 1950's and have never seen such a collection in one place. I am looking for plans or outline of parts for a Jetco Dragonfly. It is a profile, all sheet balsa biplane about 24in span, and could be built either control line or Free Flight. It had an 'open cockpit' on the fuselage. If I remember correctly, the plans in my brother's kit from the 1960's just had isometric assembly drawings, not a top/side view, which is why I'm also looking for the parts outlines. There were only about 10 wood pieces, it was a low count. Back in the day we had one with an .02 Infant engine which fit it perfectly. Sort of an early Ebeneezer, in kit form. Thanks for any help,
JimPolles - 07/11/2014
Hi Steve. Can you place a 'wanted' for me please? Looking for Complete-a-pac plans. I have about half of them but other are needed to complete my collection. Does anyone have any of the following C.A.P. plans to share? CAP 2 D.H. Tiger Moth; CAP 4 P47 Thunderbolt; CAP 5 D.H. Mosquito; CAP 12 Tipsy Junior; CAP 13 Fairey Swordfish; CAP 16 Avro Vulcan; CAP sports plan Devil Duster. Many thanks,

Wanted: plan for the Model Flight Accessories (MFA) Linus 36" span single channel model for an 049. this was a popular early 60's model with my late dads old club, Woking and District Model Club. I still fly his, but it has to be 47+ years old and I would love to build a fresh one. Cheers,

Fun Scale Cobra or Fun Scale Mustang plan (or both)
They were both Mark's Models or Dynaflite. Although they are not truly scale, They are two of the best flying, stable and forgiving airplanes I have ever flown. I built both circa 1978 or so and flew each on Super Tiger .23’s. The Super Tiger .23 was my favorite engine and would run forever on a 4 ounce tank. I did the cobra as a Russian Aircobra, White with all red trim & stars and the mustang in olive drab and grey with invasion stripes. I had over 200 flights on each when I moved and had to sell them. Now that I am retired and building again I would really like to build and fly them again. I also would really like to find a Woody Woodward .10 Cruisaire. That was the plane I really learned to fly on and Woody did most of the teaching along with Tony Nacaratti (spelling?) from the T & A Hobby Lobby in Burbank, CA. I hope someone will be able to help me as these are really my favorite planes. Thanks,

Mini Stuntman by Bowman Models
Hi, I'm trying to find the plan for a Bowman Models 'Mini Stuntman' or 'Mini Stuntsman'. I can't find any information on it anywhere on the net. It was a simple low wing sport plane, approx 45in span, foam wings, box fuselage, bubble canopy, for 20 size engines. Mid 1980s. This was my first low wing aileron model, I remember coming home from school on a Friday afternoon and opening the kit, then building pretty much non-stop and flying it on Sunday afternoon. Flew it for years, outlasted many engines, then I stacked it trying to show off to a very unimpressed girlfriend!

Graupner Klemm Kl 107 B, span 722mm, semi scale CL model for small diesel

Sterling C-12 32.75in C/L Stearman plan
Hi I've been after this plan for years as I have a built up model from the 1960's and want to build a new one. I have looked everywhere and cannot find this particular Sterling Stearman (C-12) on any of the usual supect sites and therefore plead that someone brings this plan in from the cold for all to enjoy. Printwood scans would be most welcome as I'm not sure if Sterling put the formers / bulkheads / wingrib templates on their plan sheets. Kind regards,

Humbrol Arrow, Lance, Sharky, Bronco
Hi Steve: Here's my list of wanted plans. Humbrol Arrow, Humbrol Lance, Humbrol Sharky... These were 23" wingspan, 3" chord all-sheet CO2 kit models. The contents had a good 3-view that can be enlarged. Not sure if the Sharky was released but was displayed at a Toy Fair in 1976. Date is 1976/ 1977. Also the Humbrol Bronco. This was a foam ARTF CO2 model, wingspan about 18". It flew well. So, anyone who can generate a 3-view so I can build an all-sheet balsa replica. Date is 1978. Cheers,

Butterfly from Ace RC
As a fan of the 1/2a size planes, I am always looking for the fun little oddballs. Ace RC sold some kits early on (natch) and I'd love to find one of their early offerings called the "Butterfly". It was a 36" span V-tail racer design, and I think it was actually made by EKTronics (So probably a Ted Strader design) They also made the "Concord" and the "Freedom" 7 for small RC setups.

Airco Aero Lark, Aero Star, and AeroDynamic
Hi ...I built all 3 of these back in the 1960's during a summer visit to my uncle who was at Pearl Harbor as a pilot during the attack. He worked for the Air Force and was at the Wright Patterson Airforce Base in Ohio until he was transferred to Edwards in California.. The last time I visited him in California before he died of cancer we built the exact same 3 kits which he has stashed in his collection of model items. He worked on the airfoils on every X plane from WW2 thru the YF22 and 23 before he passed away. I would like to locate the plans for these so I can build them again with modern equipment in memory of him. He flew P40's, P51B's, various cargo transports and Dehavilland Mosquitos. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

Jasco Tutor glider
Hi Steve, I am looking for a copy of the Jasco Tutor glider, manufactured by the 'Junior Aircraft Supply Co' based in Southport in the 1960s. In a fit of nostalgia I decided that I would like to build another one of these, it was the first model I ever saw catch a thermal, indeed it broke the thread I was towing it up with! Unfortunately it was the one and only time it ever caught one. The model rose up for what seemed like ages before being spat out and circling off into the distance, we ran after it for about 3/4 of a mile across the Cheshire fields and were resigned to a long search at best. The surprise that awaited us on our rather despondent return was our slightly grumpy next door neighbour holding my model and asking if it was mine. It had apparently woken him from a pleasant snooze in his deckchair when it hit the side of his garage! Happy days. this little aircraft taught me an awful lot about trimming,towing, covering, I have no idea who designed it but they did a good job IMO. Great site, keep up the good work. Regards,

Sky Dancer by Frank van den Burgh
This is a wonderful website you have created, a real treasure chest! I have just reached retirement age and, I suspect like many of your contributors and members, am currently enjoying something of a nostalgia trip. I am only now returning to the hobby after something like 26 years "off" but prior to that I had been modelling since the age of about 8 years old and in the 60s was in on what I suppose were the fairly early days of R/C when my dad bought me a "Mini Reptone"... One of my heroes in those days was Frank van den Burgh, one of the members of the British team in the first World Aerobatics Campionships and a member of the Bromley Club. Frank test flew my first 'multi' model which was a way over ambitious (on my part) copy of a pylon racer called 'Coccyx' which Mr. VdB had designed....... It crashed! The Coccyx was incredibly fast and a bit of a beast and I doubt very much whether a plan exists for that but another model I would very much like to build would be the Sky Dancer, which is the model F vd B flew in the World Champs in I think 1962 or thereabouts. It had a tricycle u/c and an upright engine, which I think was cowled in. I have looked pretty extensively for a plan of the Sky Dancer but have so far been unsuccessful so if You or any of your contributors have a copy or know where I could get one, I would be eternally grateful.

CL Fairchild PT-19 by California Models
I built this control line model when I was about twelve years old. I never flew it until I was a teenager. I had a Vivell 35 engine on it. In later years I owned a real PT-19. They are both long gone now. Today I am 76 and would dearly love to build another copy of my first CL model. I greatly enjoy your plan service and have downloaded a great many into my collection. I feel you are a friend for what you have shared. Thank You.

Stuka by D&B Model Aircraft
Hi Steve, I am looking for a D &B Model Aircraft Stuka Plan. This was a R/C kit. I remember seeing video of someone flying a converted version of the model for control line flying. I believe it was the JU-87B version of the Stuka and it had a foam wing. I would guess it’s from the late 60’s, early 70’s. Thanks for the consideration

Westland Lysander by Flitecraft
Hello Steve. An old model maker friend is trying to locate plans for the Flitecraft Westland Lysander. He has part built the model over 20 years and the plans he has are now too faded to work from for him to complete his project. He is now 80 years old so if anyone can help in finding a clearer copy he will be able to finish his model.

Royal/Marutaka Piper Colt
This plan has been very hard to find. The Colt/TriPacer by Royal/Marutaka was an excellent design and the kit was beautifully made with all parts saw cut, no laser. Being the same Tri-Pacer but with smaller engine of 108 horsepower and only two seats the Colt was an attempt by William Piper to compete with the Cessna 150. I remember that the plane was put on sale in 1961 with a basic price of USD$4.995.00. Incredible!! Those were the days.

MK Mattlas 20 or Mattlas 40
Hi Steve, I love your site – it’s wonderful. Many years ago while I was a teenager I built a MK Mattlas 20, which was a reduced size version of Wolfgang Matt’s Atlas. The shape of this design really appealed to me, and I thought it looked just lovely. The model was kitted by MK, a Japanese company that no longer exists. Initially I powered my model with an early Thunder Tiger 25 but it lacked performance. The model was re-engined with a more powerful Kosmic 23 and the extra power of this Perry carb equipped Italian engine gave it a great performance. Unfortunately I lacked the necessary experience to handle the model and it only had a short life. I’m now in my late 40s and nostalgia has kicked in! - I’d really love to build another example of either this model or its larger brother, the Mattlas 40. I’ve been looking for a plan for this model for quite a while but alas so far to no avail. I’d be eternally grateful if an Outerzone reader can supply a plan! Kind regards,

Dear Steve, Thanks for your altruist job. People like you help turn true our dreams. In 1982 my father bought me a beautiful german kit in Argentina which latter I came to mistakenly swap it for a bigger one. It was the HEGI FAN R/C, wingspan 1100mm, for .15-.21 RC engine. Thank you for your help.

DeBolt Cobra II
Hi, I am looking for a plan designed by Harold deBolt and released as a kit in 1968 by I believe when he was with Demco. The plan I am trying to get is the COBRA II. I have searched high and low with no success. It is possible that it was in his Live Wire series but am not sure. I would very much like to scratch build this model as I feel It was one of Hal’s best looking and flying designs. It has been redesigned for electric flight as the eCobra and is listed in the AMA database. However, I am looking for the original glow version. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Warnford Corinthian 36in glider
I wonder if anyone can help with a plan for the Warnford Corinthian. This is a 36" glider I built in my youth. It was a wonderful floater and to rebuild and fly one again would bring back many happy memories. It was advertised in Aeromodeller March 1949, page 216 shows it (along with a couple of others I've never seen). Many thanks

Vacation Trainer (maybe from Great Planes?)
I am looking for the plans of a Vacation Trainer. I was given this model and it's plan when I was teenager. I loved flying this 25 cu.in plane. A high wing, 4 channel trainer, it had great handling characteristics. It was acrobatic but forgiving. My dad and brothers "borrowed" it one day for a 'night flying' event, This was in the days before LEDs. They used glow sticks on the wing tips. Then they let some semi-inebriated hotshot fly/destroy my favorite plane. The dog was blamed. They went as far as making teeth marks in the balsa to frame the hound. It could have been a Great Planes kit. Not sure, and now I'm old so I cant remember anyway. I would be great if it could be found.

Carl Goldberg Models 'Tiger'
This very attractive low wing model was designed using the Eaglet philosophy. Easy to build and lots of plywood. It has a rather thick airfoil section and despite being a low winger, it is very stable and easy to fly.. Also a very difficult plan to obtain. As a matter of fact, I want all versions of the Tiger. I may or may not be correct but I think there was a flat wing version of the Tiger which is the one I like most.

I am trying to find the plans for a 3/4 scale control line Curtiss P-40, that I think was designed by Paul Del Gatto, but possibly by Paul Palanek, The plans appeared first in Flying Models, sometime in the late 50s or early 60s. It was later kitted by Enterprise. It was advertised as a very accurate and detailed model. It was the only large scale model kitted by Enterprise. At the time, I saw ads for both the plans and kit, but never saw either in real life. The plans were sold by Timely Plans Service.

Leo biplane from Astral Kits
The Leo was one of the first successful larger models I built. Successful is always subjective, of course. The combination of structure & wood choice meant it was a bit flimsy. Always had a liking for biplanes, and now I could build it better...

Debolt scale-like Piper Super Cub
