If I'm not mistaken the New England Air Museum have the drawings for the R1 Super Sportser and have used them to build the replica R1 they have on display. This is the aircraft Delmar Benjamin was given permission to study in detail as it was under construction by museum staff when he started on his R2 replica project. He was not given access to any of the original drawings though as the Granvilles did not give permission for this, but in the end he and builder Steve Wolf got to measure and photograph the R1 under construction in the museum so his R2 replica should be as close to scale as possible. I highly doubt you would be able to get hold of drawings though but you never know, I'd start by contacting the museum.
