is it to show the plans or to frame them? I have a set of plans that were framed and set behind plexiglass. Other than that, Fedex and UPS's triangle boxes hold my plans.

Dont have pictures but I used to use those metal binder clips (from office depot)hanging from my shop light power lines on the ceiling. They were just ty-wrapped to the power lines. I quit doing that cause I had move them all the time and needed them on the work bench to layout fuse sides and wings. I keep a 2'x3' roll around table handy with the kit box and other stuff so the build table stays reasonably clear. That actually doenst work very well, I still end up with a bunch of stuff that has to be cleared off now and then.

Wouldn't that make it hard to pin the spar on top of the plans?

When I build something complex, I thumbtack a copy of the plan on the wall behind my building board.

Check around at some of your local architects and engineers. Ask if they have any 'Stick files" that they are no longer using and would like to sell cheap. I know that with the advent of CAD, most consultants don't keep full size copies of the plans around anymore, so the 'stick sets' have gone away, and are usually sitting in the basement gathering dust. You can clamp several sets of plans on one stick, and if you get lucky, you can get a roll around stand or wall mounting bracket for them to store them.
