Aeroplan has a number of very fine CNC kits for classic or little known old German models, many pre-WW2.
They also sell a 24g./m˛ weight fiber reinforced polyester covering which they call SAM-Span:
("WEITER" means "NEXT", "ZURÜCK" means "PREVIOUS").

FULL SIZE PLANS Magazine : I subscribed to this and received the first (free) issue today Nov.17th 2006. Looks promising, well re-drawn selection of vintage designs including a R/C scale Aeronca "Sedan". Nice F/F Twin Cyclone (1/2A glow) and scale rubber "Tilbury Flash" golden age racer. I think I`ll continue with the deal. Hope there are some waterplanes coming.

Arrow 5, thanks for Phil Smith's mailing address. I've posted him a letter to get a price on his plan for the A.E. Brooks "Comet III" of 1937.

I'd built a reduced, rubber-powered version (complete with dummy petrol motor) many years ago from a tiny 3-view in an old RCM&E. The accompanying article mentioned "Phil Smith has plans...", but no address.

The final piece fell into place with this URL (sorry, didn't transfer as a link):
It's described as "POWER PLANS, including Jetex and Co2, from SAM 35 Speaks. Compiled by Trevor Simpson. Updated to December 2006". It's a complete list of all plans that ever appeared in the SAM magazine, giving month, year and page. It's alphabetised by model name but searchable by designer/kit manufacturer.

This is my first post, so thanks to all the members of this group for inspiring me to get back into it.
