Default Looking for sig lil Rascal plans!

I cannot seem to find one of these in a kit form anywhere anymore. I would love to buy a set of plans from any of you if they are in good shape. Hoping someone here could help!

I would go for a new in box kit as well!

I may be mistaken but I think the SIG Lil' Rascal was an ARF.

Nope, originally they we're a full balsa build.

Gotta add ailerons and some modern electrics for a fun old time plane!

Yup and he means FULL balsa as in no open framework for tissue, silk, or other covering. My cousin made and flew one back in the 60's when we were both building and flying first free flight then RC. Flew great even though he built it warped as can be. I recall he had a Pee Wee .020 on it, and never could gauge how much fuel was in it, so this one time it ran for minutes and we thought it would drift and be lost. Mind you, this is in Honolulu in Kapiolani Park located at the foot of Diamond Head. Luck was with us because the Lil Rascal landed with 50 feet of where it had been hand launched! Ahhhh, good memories of that Lil Rascal.

I actually have a Sig Rascal kit, still in the box with the plastic wrapper on it. It doesn't say "lil" on it though, it's just "Sig Rascal". For .049-.10. In the picture on the box, It's transparent green fuselage and white wings, it also has wheel pants.
