Paul Bradley was nice enough to post the "Bandit" a few posts back and mentioned it was kitted by Berkeley. There were three sport rubber models as a "set" (but sold separately) kitted by Berkeley, the Bandit, Dragon, and V-16. I built all three when I was in my early teens back about 1953-55. The Bandit was reworked somewhat from the magazine plans. Here they are plus a couple of other Berkeley plans.

Ok, with this post, it got me thinking of something: Organization of this thread. Iíve gone through and seen a few ďdoubleĒ posts of plans. As this thread grows, Iím sure that space will become and issue with all the files being posted. Also, people want to use this as resource to get the plans their looking for. With that said Iím hoping some resourceful person, with some time on their hands, could make a list off all plans posted and update it, as needed, so that we know whatís been posted. I myself have a very large collection of plans, but donít want to ďdouble postĒ plans, therefore limiting the resource of this thread. Anyway, thatís my take on it: What say you?

Planeman - Thanks a bunch for the three Berkeley Mighty Midget plans. I remember building them in my youth. It is interesting to see the differences between the version of the Bandit that was published as a construction article and the one that became the Berkeley kit. The kit retained the basic outlines but is smaller and built with a much lighter and simpler structure. I feel the need to build all three of the Mighty Midget models and also the original Bandit. They would be great fun to fly at SMALL 2011.

I found a set of plans for the Super Buccaneer, but still looking for the Super Brigadier if anyone has them. Sure would make life easier for me. Thanks for all the plans you all have posted so far. They are great.

Thanks for the Fairchild stuff Planeman. I have a question about the PT-19 file. The plane has a 72 inch span but the downloaded file prints a much smaller plan (32 x 11.8). I measured a wing panel which is only about 22 inches. Is it possible to enlarge the pdf to the proper size?
