Plans for scratch build playboy OT-like hobby-lobbys new one

Anybody know of a plan source that has the Playboy old timer around the size that hobby-lobby is now importing, ie speed -400,480, wing of 460 sq in or so, and all up under 30 oz.? I would really like to have this bird, but at $150 bucks!!! I can build 4 of them for that price. I know I'm cheep, but its not my fault!

Here are some plans,.... for multiple oldtimer types,.. and I am sure you could scale the Playboy Sr. ones to the size you are looking for. I have the HL playboy, and that span is 60" with the Speed 400 on 3:1GB and 10x7 prop.

Oldtimer Plans

Jay Burkhart (spelling?) would be able to help you more directly I think, as he has a love for this plane. I am sure he'll leave a post soon.
