Nah, you were right the first time Fred, this is on the AMA website:

AMA Plans Service Grand Opening

The new AMA plans service will open for operation on March 14, 2004.
Initially we will be offering plans from the John Pond Plans collection—including the three-views and engine drawings—and those currently available from Model Aviation magazine. As time allows, the National Model Aviation Museum's archival collection of plans, numbering approximately 8,000, will also be available for sale.
Because of the volume of the entire collection, the plans are still being scanned and digitized. Please do not call before March 14. Orders beginning March 14 can be made by calling AMA at (765) 287-1256, ext. 507. This extension number is direct to the Plans Department.
