I have found some interesting planes here: http://www.theplanpage.com/
And there are some planes here on this Forum, but you have to be a member to get access to the planes: http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php
And The Small Flying Arts also have some planes, most free flight and rubber. And a few electrics: http://www.smallflyingarts.com/
Fly Electric have some planes in PDF format:http://www.flyelectric.ukgateway.net/
Bob Holman have some great planes and short kits, but they are not for free:

I have more resources for model building, and I am putting them together in a Blog I am working on at this time.

Looking for a Zombie- Anyone at all. Ever here of a free flight gas model called the "Zombie"? It was a kit, don't remember whose. WS about 36 inches, wing on a pylon, mine had a small Ohlsson and Rice coil ignition. I'd like to find plans or old plane and electrify it.

Any leads appreciated, Thanks, Fly

PS, I forgot, this was a 1950-51 vintage kit.

The Zomby was designed by Leon Shulman in 1940, appeared in Air Trails in April 1942 and was kitted by Megow from 1942 to 1946 Class A job was 44" which is probably the one you're looking for. Klarich Kits has the Zomby/Super Zomby in 44",61" and 72" size

Default Thanks for the lead

Many, many thanks for the lead on the Zomby. I will contact Klarish kits. I'm getting a bit long in tooth but I might have one more build in me. For "old times sake". Thanks again, Fly
