Default new to wattflyer

Greeting everyone. I'm a newbie to this site, but I've been flying for around 5 years. Started with a Super Cub LP which I still fly I have a few other kits that I've built like a Sig Piper Cherokee, Herr Mini Sport, a Fun Cub and Mentor. I recently purchased a kit from a person and the instructions leave a lot to be desired. The kit is a 1972 or 73 Corben Super Ace made by the VK Model Co. out of New York. Everything is there(I think) and it's in the original box. As I stated, the instructions are on one piece of paper and tell me absolutely nothing. I was wondering if anyone here has any idea of where I can get some more info on the building of this great looking bird. Maybe some pictures too. Thanks and keep it level.

Landings vs Controlled Crashes....there's a difference?

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting, Holy Crap... what a ride.

Welcome aboard and I couldn't find much more than Simbil did. I read it is a builders kit and only one page for plans came with the kit. Neat looking plane though good luck.

Default Corben build

Thanks for trying guys. Actually, the post that you left the link for from rc-airplane-world was from me awhile back. I really like the look of the plane, but I might just sell it if I can't get some better instructions.
