Default Royal Rufe Plans

Looking for some help. My buddy has a Royal Zero and planned to make a Rufe out of it with some float plans originally designed for the TopFlite Zero. He is looking for a copy of the Royal Rufe plans if anyone has them so he can compare the floats and their mountings.

Thanks In Advance,
Ted

Yea, he does have the Top Flite conversion plans but I know that Royal, or Maratuka, made a Rufe as I saw a kit on Ebay sell just recently. There has to be plans somewhere out there. Even if it's a new kit the plans could be copied. My buddy was saying that the Royal Zero kit he has has a thinner wing, different spar locations, and other differences that we just want to compare, if we can, to find out what would work the best. The Rufe used a longer aileron and shorter flap than the Zero also. It's those type of things that hopefully are shown on the actual Royal/Maratuka Rufe plans. Hopefully someone will come through.
