Well put it this way, the PDF file shown is only 8" x 11". I believe the Tomboy sported a 36" wing. Based on how the plan looks and the wing size I would have to venture the plan should be around 20-24" high by approx. 38-40" long. Maybe one is not even available??
Thanks again.

OK, now I understand. The file is small and you want the big picture (full size plan), so to speak

Thanks Scott,
Test flights went smoothly today with the Tomboy - flew straight out of my hand just needing a little right rudder trim. A very cold frosty morning so nothing in the way of thermals around but very happy with the flights this far. A good start.

Any chance of plans for the Stinson 108? The wingspan I'm looking for is 50-70", I wanted to order one RTF but transportation cost was more than the price of the plane. Hopefully I'll be able to find one that can be built from depron (hard to get good balsa here).. Thanks!

I don't recall that Berkeley made a Grumman Wildcat kit though I may be wrong. I was a teenager working in a large hobby shop in the mid and late 1950s and we sold Berkeley kits. I opened and dreamed over each kit and built a few. I remember Berkeley kits pretty well.

And F-150, I have a lot of Berkeley plans but I have never seen the plans you mention floating around these days. I do remember those kits were made though.

Hi Voitek....your builds look very nice....
Here is the Cessna 195, the version you were looking for.

I also have the Chris Craft Constellation, but the file is too large to post here. Please e-mail me.
