Arrow Looking for a kit (balsa)

I'm looking for a kit version of either a Bristol Boxkite, a Curtiss D3 A.K.A. Curtiss pusher, or similar design of 'Olde Tyme Aeroplane'. Think: Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines (the Boxkite first appears at 1:05 in the preview ). Either full or short kit is OK. Even plans are acceptable IF they include instructions, or at the very least an inventory of the not included parts that will be necessary for completion. Pat Tritle has a Bristol Boxkite short kit on his site, but my past experience with his Hobby Lobby Eastbourne kit was that it was way too fragile, at least for my skill level. And not very well cut. I have e-mailed him about the Bristol kit, but I want to have other options in case it doesn't work out with him.

Ideally I'm looking for something in the range of 1-2 meter WS

P.S. I'm putting this in general so to reach the largest audience (the builders' forum on this board is pathetically small ).
