Back more than a decade ago, I worked on conversion of the Sailplane to radio use. Used the plan (and separate part sheet) from John Pond. Biggest problem was in that the rudder was set to one side on the plan, and did not fit. If you took a Xerox copy of it, and then cut it out, transposed it over to the rear of the fuselage area, you could readily see just why it did not fit. I don't know how they made it fit in the olden days. But points out that any re-draw has to be a copy and non-authentic.

Also do not trust the Internet plans sources. I got a noted (Other) plan recently, in which someone simply enlarged the smaller plan to a larger W/S, and claimed it was real, for that is what was mentioned on original advertisement.
