2.75oz "Diddle style" Standard J-1 Bipe

My Standard last week at our indoor session with my buddies Bug.
Many details to add.
Since then I've added headers and intake manifold to the Hispano-Suiza V-8 engine.
Plan on recovering wings w/white Solite and paint fuse white.
Flys great in our single court gym, flys a little slower than the Bug.
UWS 23"
LWS 16"
L 15"
AUW 2.75 oz. w/ 2c250
LPS w/7x6
4.2 Bluearrow servos
Berg 4L
More pictures soon...

Nice job! Do you have a plan or drawing you wouldn't mind sharing? I need a servo-based micro and the J-1 looks about the perfect size.

The only one on line I could find is this. There is also one in a aircraft of WWI book that I borrowed, and pictures in Flying the Old Ones by Frank Tallman.
But when I enlarge it to get 1 foot =1/2 inch from prototypes dimentions, it just gets blurry.
So I printed out the blurryness and used it as guide on my drafting board to draw a 3 view.
Want a snail-mail copy of my drawing?
Heres also a picture of prototype, might hum with all those wires...
Good flying,
