Default Zlin Acrobat Plans

My Zlin Acrobat recently had an unscheduled meeting with a bean field. Since I acquired it at a swap meet I don't know who made the kit. It was a 74" span with a sheeted foam wing and turtle deck and a balsa fuse.

I would like to build another one like it but don't know where to look for plans or a kit. Any help would be appreciated.

It's a long out of production Sig kit.

Google sig zlin acrobat and see what pops up. Also hit every swap meet you can reach. Might take awhile but one could pop up. You could try contacting Sig for plans but since it was from a kit, they may not be complete enough for scratch building.

I have two of the sig craftsman kits by Maxey Hester still in the box. They are smaller but do have the sheeted foam wing but not a foam turtledeck. I am not aware of a previous Sig Zlin.
