Try to save the decal, so you have a pattern. It needs
a dummy engine if you make it 'lectic. The vintage forum
has a couple threads about how to make them. Most likely
the weight won't hurt, may even be needed.
Good luck with this project. I think Brad likes bringing
back an old plane as much as building a new one.
Keep us posted,, with pictures.
BTW, the plane is still available..
Maybe they can get you some plans??
Look at the bottom right of the page, shipping was 25 cents....
