Default Looking for some plans!

What I am looking for isn't R/C but F/F that I want to make into a 2 channel R/C. I built quite a few of a 1/2-A called the Apache back in the late 50's, but can't remember who made it. The sides were distinctive that they had large holes to keep it light. I would like to do one just for the memories, anyone remember it and can help me out??? Thanks much.

John Ponds has plans for the Veco Products Corp free flight Apache from 1960 ($12) as well as the published MAN Apache 1954 ($7). Contact info is in the Breezy thread.

You need the MAN plan, if it's the same thing. The veco kit plans are useless for scratch building, as they do not show the parts, and are not even full size. They are really assembly instructions, not plans...
The Apache was a pretty popular Veco kit.
