On Dave Cushman's page one can find a nice gif rework of Earl Stahl's Globe Swift. I recently enlarged it to a 38 inch wingspan ... no pdf needed.

Note that the KK 'Senator' is 32" span, not 30" as shown on the plan. An anomaly that was never corrected in 50 years of production.

If the 'Senior Commercial' looks familiar - that's because it was later rechristened "Miss Canada" Note that this version specifies a 10" prop, a dimension omitted from the redrawn plan for Miss Canada. It's generally accepted that the inner panel dihedral shown is incorrect and should be 2 1/2" with one panel flat on board. This obviates the slight dutch roll which many MC's demonstrate in flight

Yeah Matt, I know how you feel. A few months back I added a 2 terabyte hard drive to my two other hard drives for a total of 3 terabytes of hard drive space on my computer. It gets used up fast.

Honestly, ten life times won't be enough to build even half of these models.

Bu it should be fun trying. And don't forget, you've got to fly 'em too.

For what its worth, I have over 4,500 restored model airplanes on my computer plus probably another 1,500 waiting to be restored. I'll never come close to building even a few of them. Its a mania!

And here are a couple more. I cleaned up the Comet Ryan ST-A posted a few threads back and I am including a Ryan ST-A by Tern Aero from the 1970's which I built way back then.

I've had a hard drive give up the ghost on me. Ever since then I back up to CD's.
I have 5 CDs filled with plans.
