Sig Kadet Plans

I'm looking for the original Sig Kadet plans. Sig says they don't have them and couldn't reproduce them if they did.

I'd like to build a copy of the model my Dad built back in the '70s. I've done several of them (Bridi T-20, Clough Saucer), but the Kadet was the one that lasted the longest.

The plans look like the attached. It's the original Kadet, not the Mark 2 version.

Thanks.

Andy

I have a set. Let me see if I can locate them.

Found them. They're huge, 38 inches x over 46 inches.
They are too large for Staple to scan or print. I can cut them and scan them and re arrange them on two sheets.
It will take a couple of days, but I'll start this afternoon.

I have the plans scanned and the fuselage side and top view stitched back together.
I'll do the wing and start the clean up tomorrow.

Sounds good! I have a plotter that can do 48" wide by about 30' long if I never need to!

I finished the plan.. It's pretty large 51 inches by 39 inches.
I also did the aileron supplement.
Here's a low resolution jpeg for a view.

I still plan on making the plan in two sheets to fit the printers at Staples.

Here's the Kadet, and plans separated into two sheets.

These are low resolution so I shouldn't draw any copyright arguments.
If anyone wants the hi resolution PDFs, pm me your e mail address.

I don't think there's a copyright issue,sounds like Sig doesn't care....
Man I had fun with one of those things....All the parts were silk-screened onto the wood,and you just cut them out yourself.Wing ribs were well die-cut.

It's good you're doing this for your Dad.

After I get it built I'll probably push to get him to fly it with me. That should be fun!

The rib profile is shown on the fuselage side view.
As far as I remember all the ribs are the same, except that the center ribs spar cut outs are larger to allow for spar ties.

Do a build thread. Please.
