I thought some of your posts had almost a 100 in each post! Thank you for all the plans. I particularly enjoy the ones you have been posting to RCG.

Default 1971 Minimaster

I've been learning how to shrink files a bit smaller, so here goes.

From 1971, Aamco Minimaster.
I converted one to electric and it flies great

Default 1972 Sig Kadet

This is the original Kadet, designed by Claude Mc Cullough.
The plan was quite large so I redrew the plan onto two sheets and added the aileron information.

Default Caudron C-460 by Megow

A friend of mine let me scan and clean up a plan of Megow's Caudron Racer.
It's not RC yet, but it will be.

The pdf plan can be scaled up by Staples to twice size and still be a workable plan.

Default Connecticut Yankee

This one is by Henry Struck
I redrew the plan so both wing halves are the same and pre joined.

Before you ask, these were designed for control line.
I think they still can be updated a bit and re sized to make great electric powered RC planes.
These were drawn during WW II.

Default Spitfire

Another Modern Hobbycraft plan that was sent to me by Andy Kunz.
I redrew it and added missing wing and spar halves.

Nice plane, would even be a nice foamy.

Thanks Joe, hope you build the P-39.

Fantastic set of plans Paul, especially the warbirds. Love the fuselage cross sections.

Thanks Barry. This will be it for now or until the weather gets bad again.
Now it's flying time again.

Thanks Joe,
I have around two thousand plans to sort through, If there are any particular type you would like, let me know and I'll put them to the top of the scan list.

Yes. Is there anything in particular?
Some I would have to e mail because of possible copyright infringement.

Just about anything general aviation would be cool. 310, Seneca, Duchess etc. Short Skyvan would be awesome. Probably the ugliest airplane ever but for some strange reason I want one.

Default Civilian multi engine

There isn't a lot out there for civilian multi scale.
I'll post what I have, but some are not my scans but plans I found on the web.
I can't redo the ones I found on the web because they're PDF files and my version of Photoshop is so old it won't open PDFs made from newer versions.

So here they are.

First up Aero Commander 680
